Planning a citywide meeting or convention?
The OCC sales team books short-term business (occurring within the next 18 months). Our partners at Travel Portland concentrate on multi-hotel meetings and citywide conventions, setting their sights on long-range business (conventions that book meeting sites more than 18 months out).

Our Certified Meeting Professionals
OCC is proud to have nine staff members who have earned the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) credential.
Launched by the Events Industry Council (EIC) in 1985 to enhance the knowledge and performance of meeting professionals and advance uniform standards of practice, achieving CMP certification requires years of professional experience, education and mastery of a rigorous exam.
Having so many CMPs in our Sales and Event Services departments helps to maintain OCC’s position as one of the nation's top-tier event destinations.
Future Hyatt Hotel and OCC Renovation Project
As Portland prepares for the opening of the new Hyatt Regency Portland at the Oregon Convention Center, a renovation project is also set to start at the OCC that will include upgrades to the center's interior and reconstruction of its northeast entry.
