The Top Event Venues in Portland

May 06, 2015

Portland’s geographic location makes it a unique area for venues. Are you looking for something in the city? Near the ocean? Near the mountain? Outdoor? In Portland all of these options are possible! At CEO Events, we know what makes a venue great, whether it’s for a small company party or a large corporate event. That’s why we’ve dedicated this blog to exploring some of the best venues Portland has to offer.


  • Modern

If you’re looking to utilize technology and space, then Really Big Video might be the venue for you.  This company uses current technology to put on creative entertainment through their LED wall, huge video projections, interactive photo and video booths, and more.  


  • Downtown

If you’re looking for a venue that’s easily accessible and close to all of Portland’s fun activities, then a venue downtown is a great choice! We recommend The Benson Hotel or the Marriott on the Waterfront for corporate events and gatherings. For something more trendy and rustic, Urban Studio is a charming spot for private parties and corporate meetings.


  • Outdoor Scenic

Mt. Hood Ski Bowl is a great venue for outdoor enthusiasts! It’s also located less than an hour and a half from the city. Winter or summer, this place has an endless amount of activities from cosmic night tubing to their famous alpine slide. With help from CEO Events, we can create an itinerary full of fun corporate team building events. If you’re looking for a true Mt. Hood experience, then we highly recommend Timberline Lodge. Choose form a variety of rooms or rent out their popular Silcox hut.


  • Large-Scale

For those large scale corporate events, the Oregon Convention Center can surely accommodate.  This venue has 2 grand ballrooms, 50 meeting rooms, and exhibit space to handle an event of up to 10,000 people.


  • Urban

For a unique and truly Portland urban experience, we recommend the event space at the Portland Art Museum. This venue is great for both social gatherings and corporate events. For a vibrant outdoor venue that’s great for company parties we recommend The Roberts Sculpture Mall. You can also choose from conference and auditorium rooms that are great for company meetings or conferences.
