Come explore the Rose city and the everchanging communication landscape with us as we meet in Portland, Oregon for 3CMA’s Annual Conference, September 7 - 9.
Inspired by the thousands of miles of trails scattered throughout Oregon, you’ll embark on a new adventure to blaze a new trail in how to communicate and reconnect with your community. While it has been a year full of changes, let’s explore the unknown, re-center and inspire each other to keep going.
Full of quirk and charm, Portland is the perfect backdrop to network with your fellow 3CMA colleagues and refocus on your next communication goals! As local government and marketing professionals trust plays an important role in how government communications are perceived by audiences. The 3CMA Annual Conference will provided you with the best tools to wade through noise and deliver clear and engaging communications to reach your community.
Known for its foodie scene, craft brews and lush green trees - Portland has a lot to offer! Unwind with a glass of wine from the world-renowned Willamette Valley or a hoppy IPA from a local brewery. You’ll be dazzled by the aroma of delicious bites from local food carts and new creations by local chefs, find the best coffee blends at nearly every coffee shop, and enjoy a stroll along the Waterfront Park. Did you know Portland is also home to the smallest park in the world? Mills Ends Park is a small circle 2 feet across and made it into the Guinness Book of Records for its size, proving that no small feat goes unnoticed!
Get inspired to bridge the knowledge gap. Portland has many monikers including “Bridgetown.” Divided by the Willamette River, the city is home to 12 river bridges, like the towering St. John’s Bridge built in 1931, the Steel Bridge connecting Old Town Chinatown and the Rose Quarter plus the oldest vertical lift bridge in operation in America – the Hawthorne Bridge to name a few. We take pride in shopping and growing local so hit up the Farmers Market in Downtown and see how you too can harvest new ideas!
