The Oregon Convention Center (OCC) is the largest convention facility in the Pacific Northwest. It offers 255,000 square feet (23,690 sq m) of contiguous exhibit space, 52 meeting rooms, two grand ballrooms, full-service catering and an 800-space underground parking garage. Visitors can get to and from the downtown hotel core and Portland International Airport with ease via light rail and streetcars.

The OCC strives to be the most sustainable convention center in the world — and the first choice as a venue for green meetings.

A renovation of the Oregon Convention Center is underway and expected to be completed by early 2020. The project includes numerous upgrades to the center’s public spaces and ballrooms, as well as a reconstruction of the north plaza. The new designs, inspired by Oregon’s landscape, will include lichen-like carpets and forest canopy ceilings. The north plaza will be renovated to provide more flexible and usable space and to improve wayfinding for adjacent hotel guests and transit commuters. These upgrades will allow the 28-year-old center to continue to provide world-class service for today’s meeting and event needs.
