Oregon Convention Center

OCC logoAbout

The Oregon Convention Center is the largest venue in the Pacific Northwest, and one of only two LEED Platinum buildings of its kind in the country. It is owned and managed by Metro Regional Government. OCC strives to be the most sustainable venue in the world by partnering with clients, community organizations, and visiting guests to divert as much as possible away from the landfill.
