Meet & Explore a Whole New World

New nonstop flights between Chicago O’Hare and Eugene, Oregon open a whole new world for meeting planners. 

Now that the affordability, beauty and uniqueness of the Eugene, Cascades & Coast region of Oregon is just a flight away, consider holding your meeting or event here and exploring all the area has to offer.

Meet and Explore Affordably

Industry surveys consistently report cost as one of the most important factors driving planners’ destination decisions. Bringing your meeting or event to a small-market city like Eugene can slash the cost of venue rentals, lodging and dining in half. When you add free support services, free shuttles to and from the airport from all major hotels, free hotel parking and tax-free shopping and dining, it all adds up to significant budget savings.

Meet and Explore the Beauty

Before or after your event, attendees will want to explore the beauty that makes the Eugene, Cascades & Coast region a top destination choice. In this adventure-driven destination, attendees can hike to spectacular waterfalls, swim in hot springs, beachcomb below majestic ocean cliffs, ride in a dune buggy across miles of rolling sand dunes, kayak calm ocean estuaries, or shoot the rapids of the McKenzie River. Even in the urban core of Eugene, you're immersed in the dynamic beauty of the great Northwest. The attendee experience has become a differentiator and a key driver in achieving meeting or event objectives and planners need to choose destinations with this in mind.

Meet and Explore the Uniqueness

While the remarkable breadth of things for attendees to see and do across the region is, in and of itself, truly a unique draw, there’s much more to the story. The region is also rich in intellectual capital, focused on sustainability, committed to accessibility and prides itself on inclusivity. Plentiful conference spaces, convenient transportation, a year-round temperate climate and a friendly, safe metro-area all add to the destination's allure. Combine all that with farm-to-table restaurants, award-winning craft breweries and wineries, out-of-the-box team-building activities and a vibrant arts, culture and entertainment scene, and you begin to understand that this small market really is unique.

Come for a site visit to meet and explore the area for yourself and discover why attendees will sing your praises for choosing this affordable, beautiful and unique destination!
