Portland is a PlaygroundExperience the confluence of scenic beauty and a vibrant city in Portland
Portland punches above our weight when it comes to sports cities. We’ve got the Trail Blazers, Timbers, Thorns, Hops, Winterhawks, and spacious venues at the Rose Quarter and Providence Park. Oh, yeah we also have Nike, adidas, and Columbia which have transformed this city into a sports mecca. When you look at this beautiful skyline, you can’t help but see potential: NBA All Star Games, NCAA tournaments, Final Fours, MLS All Star Games, Women’s World Cup, and track and field world championships. If you want sports at the highest level, we’ve got you.

“We were absolutely smitten with Portland. The Oregon Convention Center is lovely, especially with all the natural light, beautiful artwork, and wide open spaces. The food is outstanding and may be the best I’ve ever had in more than 30 years of attending conferences. I hope to come back someday and will enthusiastically recommend Portland.”
