This weekend will involve a lot of walking. Please bring comfortable shoes. Weather in Portland is unpredictable – we recommend an umbrella and sunglasses.
The CEPE offices are located at 1500 SW 1st Avenue, Suite 100B, Portland, OR 97201 between SW Market and SW Clay Streets.
The closest hotel to our offices is the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront, located across the street, but there are several others nearby. The Hotel Modera is a 5 block walk up Market St. There is also a Hilton several blocks away, slightly closer to the downtown retail and shopping areas.
We will provide walking maps of Portland, along with a Tri-Met (transit) schedule for easy access to the city, should you wish to explore on your own.
