  • Don't Just Sit There: Experience Your Meeting on the Tillamook Coast

     
    POSTED March 17, 2017
     

Sponsored by Visit Tillamook Coast

Just 90 minutes from Portland and the Willamette Valley, Oregon's Tillamook Coast offers charming villages, breathtaking views, and a welcoming atmosphere for your executive retreat, team building event, board meeting, association banquet, family reunion, hobby groups, and small business conferences. Stretching along scenic Highway 101 for more than 70 miles, the Tillamook Coast includes Manzanita in the north to Neskowin in the south. Your group will be inspired by gathering near the ocean, bays, rivers, farms, forests and villages. Group activities abound, from golfing and hiking, to kayaking and fishing. And off course, there’s nothing like taking in a sunrise or sunset on the most beautiful part of the Oregon Coast. For more information and help planning your group event, go to www.tillamookcoast.com/meetings 

The Convention Industry Council’s Accepted Practices Exchange (APEX) and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) have awarded its Level 4 certification—the highest possible accreditation—to the Vancouver Convention Centre. Venues that demonstrate high standards for environmentally sustainable meetings, trade shows and conferences are awarded Level 4 certification. Vancouver Convention Centre’s commitment to environmental sustainability helped it become the first facility in Canada to receive this level of certification.
