Speaking Of Portland ...

"Portland has it all … outstanding meeting facilities, superb transportation, easy accessibility and an awesome selection of activities for meeting attendees to do when they are not in conference sessions. It is a vibrant and beautiful city which goes out of its way to make guests feel at home."

Kenneth D. Reid, CAE Executive Vice President American Water Resources Association

"Travel Portland's customer service was fantastic. They really became an integral part of my conference team and went above and beyond to help me with event site selection, site visits, restaurant and private dining recommendations, concierge services, and local committee meetings. Their housing department personnel and services were incredibly helpful and responsive to me and my attendees. Our annual meeting attendance in Portland this year [2010] increased 32% this year over our previous year's attendance. Our attendees were delighted with Portland's restaurants, public transit and especially microbreweries! Participants were asking us before they left when we planned to return to Portland. We hope to come back very soon."

Nicole Guy Meeting Manager Microscopy Society of America

"What most impressed our attendees was Portland's free public transportation in downtown, the very low cost and convenient airport transportation (MAX rail), and tax-free shopping (I heard some went overboard and had to get extra bags and boxes to ship back their purchases). Many CVBs provide visitor info, but you do so so promptly, in depth and professionally. Travel Portland truly made my job as a meeting planner so much easier and fun."
