Are there any travel safety recommendations?
Portland, Oregon, is known for being a city of counterculture, where art, theater, and music are highly valued! Considered a ‘hodgepodge of everything that’s hip in the U.S.,’ Portland offers green open-spaced parks, a healthy food truck scene, several first-class distilleries, a thriving art scene, and so much more! 

When visiting Portland, or any large city, it’s always wise to be aware of your surroundings and be diligent in your own personal safety. 

Portland’s hip culture and carefree vibe have resulted in an increased homeless population over recent years. The city has several initiatives underway to support their homeless population by providing increased housing options and mental health resources. To that end, below are a few additional resources on Portland and what the city is doing to address the issue. 

  1. Homelessness in Portland

  2. Safety in Portland: Frequently Asked Questions

While Portland discourages giving money to panhandlers, there are several ways ASPE attendees can help the homeless community in the city, if you wish to do so.


When will I be assigned my booth?
Booth locations will be provided when you check in on site.

How are booth placements given?
Booth locations will be assigned at the sole discretion of show management. Placement will be made based on the date of the received contract, electrical needs, sponsorship level, and if possible, direct competitors.

When will I receive the preliminary registration list and the final registration list?
Preliminary registration lists are sent out approximately two weeks prior to the meeting and approximately two weeks post-meeting.





Our Conference Planning Committee has worked very hard to bring plenty of networking opportunities to you. This year's conference will offer multiple opportunities strictly dedicated to networking time with fellow ASPE attendees and exhibitors/sponsors!
