The RLA is Pittsburgh's premier learning and conference facility, utilizing a collaborative approach to meet the educational and training needs of the region.
The RLA is a non-profit campus, providing a professionally designed and operated facility which combines well-designed, comfortably furnished, and technology-based classrooms and meeting rooms to provide both a venue for learning and a variety of degree and training programs.
The RLA is a LEED-Silver NC Certified Building. LEED is a certification of the US Green Building Council and the authority on “green” design. We are a green, sustainable building that utilizes healthier and more resource-efficient models of design, renovation, operation, cleaning, and maintenance.
Our all-inclusive packaging includes continuous breaks both morning and/or afternoon. We have central break stations set up with fresh baked pastries, health fruits and veggies, locally grown foods, and a wide variety of beverages. We can even customize these breaks to your liking. We recently spent time benchmarking break stations around the nation and designed and installed two upgraded break stations (one on each floor) which offers an impressive addition to the services we already offer.
The RLA is Pittsburgh's all-inclusive meeting destination. With our simplified all-inclusive package pricing, you know your total meeting cost in advance and that everything you need for a successful meeting is included.

The largest room at the RLA, with a seating capacity of 400, the Great Room is ideally suited for large conferences, keynote addresses, trade shows, and all-staff meetings. New ceiling mounted HD projectors are connected to Touch Screen Smart Technology Podiums, allowing the presenter to switch from PowerPoint, to video, to conference calling – all with a touch. Acoustical sound panels and a brand new state-of-the-art sound system allows for 11 microphones at one time and surround sound. The room has 24' ceilings and lighting controls that offer more than a dozen different setting options. Just like the rest of our campus, every element was research and designed to give the best possible presentation and learning environment down to the last detail.
Whether you are planning a meeting for a group of 12 or 400, The RLA has the ideal meeting space for you. Every meticulous detail of our 76,000 square foot campus has been carefully executed.
