Company Description:

LET’S PORTLAND!

If you can dream it, you can do it here.

Let’s count on professional, enthusiastic assistance that starts the minute you contact us and continues through your closing session.

Let’s create a one-of-a-kind experience for you with our M&C Gold Service Award-winning team (16 years running!) who does everything it takes to make your event a success.

Let’s meet at the Oregon Convention Center (OCC), the largest (and the nation’s first LEED-certified) convention facility in the Pacific Northwest. With 255,000 square feet of contiguous exhibit space, 50 meeting rooms, and two grand ballrooms totaling 60,000 square feet, the OCC is spacious, beautiful and sustainable!

Let’s get around easily (and quickly) with a convention center connected to hotel properties, downtown and the Portland International Airport by MAX light rail. Plus, wherever you’re going, you’ll have choices. You can take a bus, the award-winning MAX light rail, Portland Streetcar, taxi, Uber, pedicabs, rented bike or, of course, walk and enjoy the view.

Let’s stay in a hotel package that keeps getting better! With an enviable collection of boutique and big-name hotels, Portland’s hotel package is experiencing a growth spurt! Our city will have 40% more hotel rooms by 2020!

Let’s build something better with a brand-new Hyatt Regency hotel (opening winter 2019) , featuring 600 rooms just steps from OCC and MAX light rail.

Let’s shop tax-free. Yep, from boutique to big names to food and beverage orders for your event.

Let’s eat farm-fresh, at food carts and at award-winning restaurants.

Let’s drink custom crafted coffee, cocktails or locally made beer from over 75 breweries in the city

Let’s find culture on every corner, whether it’s a day in a museum, an afternoon perusing an art walk, or an evening out enjoying live music.

Let’s play outside – from bike paths, forest trails, kayaks on the river, or just an urban stroll through park-lined blocks.

Let’s come together from all over.

Let’s mean it when we say YOU ARE WELCOME.

LET’S PORTLAND!

Green Meetings

The Oregon Convention Center (OCC) is a LEED Platinum green building — one of only two U.S. convention centers to earn this certification and has over 6,000 solar panels.

The OCC is also the first venue in the world to attain Level 4 APEX certification (the highest level) from the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

Portland has more LEED Platinum-certified buildings per capita than any other city in the United States.

More than 360 local structures utilize eco-roofs to cleanse rainwater, absorb solar heat and provide insulation.

All major hotels are Green Seal certified.

Tax-Free Shopping

Within steps of downtown hotels, you’ll find major national retailers like Nordstrom, Nike, Keen, Lululemon, Apple, Louis Vuitton and H&M as well as endless independent boutiques with designs you won’t see anywhere else.

Visit the Pearl District for art, fashion and books — Powell’s City of Books is the largest independent bookstore in the world and occupies an entire city block and stocks more than 1.5 million new and used volumes.

For a handcrafted souvenir, visit the artisans at the Portland Saturday Market (open Sundays, too). Lloyd Center, near the Oregon Convention Center, is Oregon’s largest shopping center and just 30 minutes south of Portland, you’ll find Woodburn Company stores - the largest tax-free outlet center in the West.

Food & Drink

While you can feast on exceptional offerings at fine eateries around the city, gourmet-grade offerings are just as common in casual settings. Downtown food carts grill locally raised chicken and sauté´ seasonal produce from farmers’ markets.

And it’s not just chefs who find inspiration in the region’s bounty. Willamette Valley vintners produce ethereal Pinot noirs; microbrewers craft award-winning beers with Oregon-grown hops. The city is even home to a growing number of distilleries, which use local grains and fruit to create spirits with a distinctly Oregon flavor.

Arts & Culture

As a cultural hub, Portland offers a vibrant year-round arts scene with a variety of choices for your delegates: established opera, ballet, symphony, theater, dance companies and nationally touring Broadway productions just to name a few.

Moviegoers — who’ll be tempted by more than 20 annual film festivals — can visit the many theaters that serve distinctive meals along with one of the city’s most cherished cultural treasures: craft beer.

Outdoor Activities & Day Trips

Urban hikers will find an inviting walking route just behind the Oregon Convention Center: the 1.5-mile Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade, which features works of art and water-level views of downtown.

You don’t have to venture far from town to find yourself paddling on a secluded bay, hiking a forested trail or observing native wildlife. Within a 90-minute drive of downtown, you can:

Visit the vineyards & tasting rooms of Oregon’s scenic wine country, famous for its pinot noir ?

Hike past Multnomah Falls or any of the nearly 100 waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge ?

Ski & snowboard on Mount Hood ?

Explore the towns & beaches of the dramatic, rugged Oregon coast ?

The mission of Travel Portland is to strengthen the region’s economy by marketing the metropolitan Portland region as a preferred destination for meetings, conventions and leisure travel.
