Getting to Portland and the Convention Center
Getting to the Oregon Convention Center (http://www.oregoncc.org/) couldn’t be easier. Its central location in the heart of downtown Portland’s Rose Quarter/Lloyd District affords numerous and speedy transportation options – whether traveling by car or taxi, riding the city’s airport-connected TriMet MAX light rail, Portland Streetcar, or often by simply strolling a short distance from your hotel. Just eight miles from Portland International Airport (PDX), the OCC is accessible via Interstate Freeway I-5 North from exit 302A (Rose Quarter) and I-84 West Exit 1 (Lloyd Boulevard). It is bound by Holladay Street, NE Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Boulevard, Lloyd Boulevard and NE First Avenue.
Rather than renting a car, we encourage meeting attendees to utilize Portland’s excellent light rail system. Light rail will take you from the airport to within one block of the DoubleTree Hotel, and to within two blocks of the Hilton Hotel. The Convention Center has its own designated stop. Free passes will be included in your registration packet, so once you have registered, getting to and from your hotel and the Convention Center will be a breeze.
We hope your travel to and from Portland is comfortable and easy. Here are some resources to assist you:
