Eat and drink like a local or dine all over the world
Our two Portland Roasting Cafés serve organic coffee, beverages, fresh bakery goods, assorted oatmeal breakfasts, yogurt, and sandwiches.
And it doesn’t get more Portland than the Stir Bistro and Lounge, a full service restaurant with a menu focused exclusively on local flavors and specialties. If you like microbrews, Oregon wine or homegrown spirits, Stir has it!
For heartier appetites, our other restaurant offerings range from delicious stir-fry to mouth-watering pizza or nachos, all made to satisfy. Enjoy!
See what's open
Navigating the building is easier (and quicker) than ever!
Our new Level 1 Connector provides seamless access to all exhibit halls and Level 1 meeting rooms.
Visitors are now able to move across the entirety of the building’s first and largest level, which certainly makes attending events easier, particularly for people with mobility limitations. It's just one of the great changes that are part of the OCC Renovation Project.
If you’re heading across the building from any location on our main lower level, you can’t miss it! Of course, we still have plenty of accessible elevators, escalators and stairs if you want to get in more steps.
Please recycle – and compost
Spend some time at the OCC and you'll soon catch on that we’re "greener" than most event venues.
You'll encounter options to recycle and compost items you no longer want or can't keep, so please sort them carefully into the receptacles we provide.
If you have a reusable bottle for your water, look for the bottle fill stations at our water fountains too!
Wireless internet access is available throughout the convention center. Complimentary Wi-Fi service is available in all lobbies and meeting rooms.
Individual pay-as-you-go Wi-Fi service: Basic service is available for $12 per day, Business Class service for $50 per day, with your credit card payment. Customer support is provided on site.
For large groups or conference networks, contact our Technology Services Manager.

Suites for nursing mothers
OCC provides two Mamava nursing suites. These private and secure suites are located near the A and E Meeting Rooms on Level 1.
The suites are ADA-compatible with a comfortable seating area and are equipped with standard AC power outlets and USB charger ports.
Note: All Mamava suites come with a Bluetooth SmartLock that syncs with Mamava’s mobile app. Download the app at mamava.com/mobile-app.
You may also request a door code for entry from our receptionists in the Administration Office on Level 2 and by calling 503-235-7575.
First aid and medical attention
The facility has two fully equipped first aid rooms, one located in the Exhibit Hall A Lobby and the other outside Exhibit Hall E.
An Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) is on site during events with attendance over 1,000 or when otherwise deemed appropriate for the safety of attendees.
EMTs may be contacted by picking up any house phone and dialing “7575” or by alerting any OCC staff member.
The building also has multiple defibrillator stations (AEDs) located in public spaces for immediate response to a medical emergency.
Lost and found
Sometimes you just forget where you set your phone, or you leave your coat on the back of a chair. Lost and found items are tagged, cataloged and stored for 30 days. After that, unclaimed items are donated.
If you’ve lost something, call OCC Administration at 503-235-7575 or email email@example.com.
Please provide a detailed description of the item you lost. Also, if you happen to have a photo of your missing item, including it will help us to identify it too.
