6. Oregon Convention Center

As one of only two LEED Platinum-certified convention centers in the country, Oregon Convention Center takes pride in its commitment to sustainability—much like Portland itself, which excels at public transportation, water conservation and other green-minded initiatives. For example: The convention center is easily accessible via the city’s MAX Light Rail service and has extensive recycling and composting programs in place. The facility has 255,000 square feet of contiguous exhibit space, 50 meeting rooms, two grand ballrooms and a fully landscaped, 30,000-sq.-ft. plaza for alfresco receptions.
