We manage an industry leading facility that is effectively utilized and sustainably operated.
The Oregon Convention Center can host complex, large-scale events that require sophistication and detail. Like the city it is located in, the OCC is never satisfied in its pursuit of excellence. The sheer range of events reflects not only the OCC’s broad appeal as a hosting venue, but also its ability to capture the Portland zeitgeist, which embraces the alternative, mainstream and traditional all at once. This exemplifies the variety of businesses and clients seeking out Portland right now, and how the OCC has enabled and supported that growth by providing the most modern amenities, pioneering leadership in green practices, and the best customer service in the industry.
The Oregon Convention Center serves as a catalyst for Oregon’s economy. In addition to the thousands of jobs supported by the facility, consumer spending totals more than $500 million each year as a result of the convention center’s business.
The Oregon Convention Center is owned and operated by Metro and managed through the Metropolitan Exposition Recreation Commission. Metro, the Portland area's regional government, works with communities, businesses and residents to chart a wise course for the future while protecting the things that people love about this place.
