PyCon Pittsburgh. April 15-23, 2020.

Venue and Hotels

Warning: Beware of Housing Pirates!

PyCon and our official housing partner, VisitPittsburgh, have learned that attendees and exhibitors have been contacted by a third party agency urging them to book accommodations for the conference through them.

Please be aware that this is a scam, as these rooms are usually offered at higher rates, are non-refundable and/or carry a significant cancellation penalty. VisitPittsburgh is the only official housing agency for PyCon. Neither VisitPittsburgh nor PyCon is calling delegates to sell rooms.

If you are contacted by an agency, other than the official PyCon housing service, offering to make your hotel reservations, we urge you to not use their services. We cannot protect you against them if you do book a reservation.

PyCon and the PSF are not responsible for any hotel reservations made outside of the official housing bureau. Only book hotel reservations through our registration site to ensure you receive the conference rate and are guaranteed a hotel room.

Convention Center

From the start of tutorials to the close of sprints, PyCon 2020 is taking place at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. The DLCC is located in the heart of the city, nestled between Downtown’s Cultural District, the historic Strip District, and the Allegheny River. The DLCC provides optimal access for exploring what Pittsburgh has to offer. The map below shows the convention center in relation to the several conference hotels, that you can read more about below.
