The map below provides a quick look at how Portland is laid out. Yes, there’s a river between the convention center and downtown. No, that’s not a problem.
MAX Makes It Easy
Portland’s MAX Light Rail system connects Portland International Airport (PDX), the Oregon Convention Center (OCC) and the downtown hotel core — making it easy for your delegates to get where they need to go.
What About That River?
Yes, the OCC is directly across the Willamette River from downtown Portland. Locals don’t see the river as a barrier; it’s just a slice of nature in the middle of the city — and it takes mere minutes to cross.
Where Will They Stay?
Portland’s 600-room convention center headquarter hotel is now open. Your Travel Portland sales rep will be happy to help if you need assistance with hotel room blocks in the city.
