With several major coal mining operations within driving distance, Pittsburgh is the ideal setting for the U.S. Coal Show. The city is a thriving urban area with many mining suppliers headquartered in the region. The U.S. Coal Show has blocks of rooms reserved at reasonable rates at the Westin and the Marriott Courtyard. The Pittsburgh airport is a world class facility that’s easily accessible.

In 2023, nearly 1,200 coal mining professionals registered for the U.S. Coal Show, including 350 mining delegates from companies like Allegheny Metallurgical, Alliance Resource Partners, American Consolidated Natural Resources (ACNR), Arch Resources, Blue Mountain Energy, CONSOL Energy, Coronado Global Resources, Corsa Coal, Iron Senergy, Prairie State Generating Co., Signal Peak, Wolverine Fuels, and Warrior Met.

A total of 65 suppliers used 18,900 ft2 to display the latest in coal mining equipment and technology in 2023. Manufacturers brought more equipment to the show floor, including five shields, two shield haulers, a locomotive, a mantrip and plenty of ancillary equipment.

In 2025, the U.S. Coal Show will take place midweek, June 3-5, 2025. Summertime is a great time to be in Pittsburgh. The city has fabulous restaurants and entertainment. More than 100 delegates enjoyed U.S. Coal Show night at PNC Park in 2023.
