Travel Portland is proud to bring you Portland Dining Month, our annual celebration of the city’s culinary scene. Since 2009, food-loving Portland has dedicated an entire month to celebrating our acclaimed dining scene. Each March, the city’s top restaurants offer three-course meals for a great price.
Dining Month is one of many ways Travel Portland promotes overnight travel to Portland, a key ingredient in our city’s economic success. Visitors to the Portland region support 37,200 jobs, spend $5.2 billion and contribute $253.8 in million in state and local taxes.*
Travel Portland is also responsible for advertising campaigns that spread awareness of Portland outside the city and encourage visitors to book trips. You can see our latest campaign videos or take a look at our digital You-can-o-mizer designed to help visitors craft itineraries.
Current target markets include Seattle, San Francisco, Phoenix and Minneapolis. Internationally, Travel Portland markets to travelers from Canada, the U.K., Japan, China, Oceania, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Mexico.
In addition, Travel Portland works with meeting and convention planners to book groups (for example, national associations that host an annual meeting or educational seminar) into the Oregon Convention Center and Portland hotels. Check out our meetings website to see more of this work.
We also work with journalists to secure media coverage of Portland, operate a busy visitor information center in Pioneer Courthouse Square and partner with local businesses and the local community to connect them with visitors – and their dollars.
