Getting To & Around Portland

The city of Portland, Oregon, has been proclaimed as North America's "Best Big City," according to Money magazine. Come to the M&M 2010 meeting, and experience the region's natural beauty, its bustling local scene, terrific microbrews and wineries, fresh local cuisine and welcoming accommodations — much of which can be accessed via the region's convenient and eco-friendly light-rail system.

Summertime in Portland is "high season" and you'll soon see why. Clear blue skies, low humidity, warm days and comfortably cool nights are a big part of why people flock to the Pacific Northwest in August.

Portland International Airport (PDX) is approximately 10 miles (20 mins) from the Oregon Convention Center and many of the M&M 2010 conference hotels.
