The US Commerce & Trade Research Institute recently honored VisitPittsburgh for their dedicated work.

The organization presented the tourism promotion agency with the 2015 Pennsylvania Excellence Award, which recognizes companies that have achieved success amongst their local business environment.

USCTRI researches, evaluates and recognizes companies across a number of industries. To be recognized, businesses are evaluated with an emphasis given to meeting and exceeding industry benchmarks for customer service, product quality and ethical practices.

"We are excited and honored to have received the 2015 Pennsylvania Excellence Award," says Craig Davis, president/CEO, VisitPITTSBURGH. "I'm incredibly proud of every employee at VisitPITTSBURGH for all of the work they do to promote the Greater Pittsburgh region."

Recognized for its sustainable performance and design, The Source Hotel has been awarded LEED Silver certification. Owned by Zeppelin Development, the 92,000-square-foot building was destined to meet LEED standards from its inception with sustainability at the forefront of the project.

 

Recently, Denver’s largest hotel, Sheraton Denver Downtown, has unveiled its 80-million-dollar renovation plans. The changes are set to be completed by April 2020.  

 

The Orvis Fly-fishing endorsement at Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa can be attributed to “a broad range of fly-fishing gear and equipment, talented and engaging guides, and a sustainable approach to fishing neighboring private waters on Ranch Creek and the Fraser River,” according to Brad Johnson, lead Orvis fly-fishing guide at Devil’s Thumb Ranch.
