The New England SIOR Chapter had a good showing of its members at the Fall World Conference in Portland, Oregon held October 16-19, 2019.
Mt. Hood to Multnomah Falls. Roller Derby to Rose Gardens. Powell's City of Books to Paul Bunyan. Trailblazers to Timbers. Craft brews to the Columbia River Gorge. Just a start to the sites and sounds experienced in Portland, Oregon.
On top of a great destination, there was the experience of thought leadership and education that attracted many SIORs to this conference. It was an invaluable opportunity to connect with the best-of-the-best in industrial and office brokerage.
All Fall World Conference activities took place at the Hilton Portland Downtown. Located in Portland’s business and entertainment district and one block from the MAX Light Rail System, this hotel offered easy access to top attractions including the Portland Saturday Market, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, the Portland Art Museum, and many shopping and dining options.
