ITRA Global, one of the largest real estate organizations devoted to the representation of corporate tenants and occupiers of commercial real estate worldwide, has announced the ITRA Global 2012 General Conference will be held March 30 through April 1 at the Fairmont Hotel in Pittsburgh.
Carrie S. Holstead, chairman of the board of directors for the organization and president of the Pittsburgh ITRA office explains, “This will be a great opportunity to introduce the managing principals from ITRA offices in major markets in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia to one of the most dynamic 21st Century markets in North America. The conference will also provide the perfect opportunity for our affiliate offices to learn more about what makes Pittsburgh a model city and region that continues to receive national acclaim.”
The ITRA Global event will be sponsored exclusively by the Pittsburgh Regional Alliance (PRA), an affiliate of the Allegheny Conference on Community Development. Dewitt Peart, President of the PRA, says the conference provides his marketing and economic development organization, recognized as one of the best in the United States, with a unique and highly desirable opportunity to interact with executives from around the globe who influence relocation and expansion decisions of their corporate clients.
“It is important to the Pittsburgh region´s continued economic growth that we establish and maintain relationships with site selectors in the U.S. and around the world so we can explain the many advantages of living and working in the Pittsburgh area,” Peart says. “Sponsoring this conference allows us to accomplish that and so much more.”
Gary Saulson, Director of Corporate Real Estate for Pittsburgh-based PNC Financial Services Group, Inc., will give a keynote presentation at the conference about “Achieving Value from an Environmental Commitment” and will discuss the company´s new headquarters, The Tower at PNC Plaza, which will be the “world´s greenest skyrise” when it opens in mid-2015.
“For more than a decade,” Saulson says, “PNC made the industry-leading commitment that all new construction and major renovations would follow LEED® green building standards. Due to this commitment, PNC recently celebrated the achievement of its 100th LEED certified building, which makes PNC the world leader in newly constructed LEED certified buildings. In total, PNC has 150 LEED-certified projects.”
