Portland's Oregon Convention Center: a tip-sheet
The Oregon Convention Center is a convention center in Portland, Oregon. It is located in the eastside of the Willamette River in the Lloyd District neighborhood. The Oregon Convention Center is best known for the twin spire towers which provide light into the building's interior. The building was designed by the architectural firm of Zimer Gunsul Frasca. It is also the largest convention center in the U.S. Pacific Northwest
OCC is located within Portland's city center, right around the corner from restaurants, tax-free shopping, cultural attractions and entertainment. MAX light-rail makes getting around easy. It can pick you up or drop you off right at our front door and take you just about anywhere downtown for free! OCC is eight short miles from the airport, and MAX can bring you straight to us or take you home.

- Non-Starbucks coffee shops near the Convention Center
- Bicycle parking at the Oregon Convention Center
