Smooth and efficient unloading
Work closely with your show manager to ensure that you know your assigned load in time and the appropriate ramp to use.
All freight should be shipped directly to your show decorator. Ask your show manager for details.
We will not accept or ship exhibitor freight or drayage. For larger conventions and trade shows, request shipping services through your organization’s third party decorator.
If you do not have a decorator but need to ship items weighing less than 150 pounds, call the local UPS Store at 503-230-1808 to arrange services.
Exhibitor parking availability
Parking may be made available as necessary or on a show-by-show basis. Depending on the event, overflow parking may be directed to one or more satellite lots and/or garages in the area surrounding the convention center.
Contact your show manager for questions related to event parking.
