I am surprised to see that the Expo Center came up to review. The only reason to visit here would be a Home remodel show, pet show, gun show, or flea market, Van shoe event, etc. I am not sure when it was built but it looks to be the 60's. There are several large buildings so more than one... More

The Expo facilities are not exactly that wonderful that house the antique show three times a year. The place is a bit dilapidated. The food vendors are expensive and the food atrocious. I hear the captive audience of the antique vendors complaining every time. With all the wonderful food in Portland, you would think they would contract some decent vendors.... More

My friends and I attended the Portland Home and Garden show at the Expo Center. I was amazed at the size of this facility, how well organized, and how clean it was. The parking lot was packed (very popular show!), so luckily we rode the Lite Rail in from Beaverton and avoided all the parking hassles and the almost always... More

Very nice & helpful staff. Roomy facilities. Bar on site. Convenient location right off the highway. We were there with my daughter's cheer team for a cheer competition and it was very accommodating.

We went for the Christmas Expo. Very scanty on decorations! $8 to park, $8 per person entrance fee. Children under 3 are free. Not very festive at all. Had a warehouse feel. Lots of vendors under 2 roofs. Terrible food there and expensive. $4 reheated pretzels. Hard to find any bargains. Overall a disappointment. We are sorry we went. Save... More

This is a nice large exposition center. It is in dire need of updating though.If you come off of I-5 using exit 6B you need to really pay attention. When you turn off Marine Drive to get into the front parking area for the expo there is no sign letting you know where to turn. Everytime I have been here,... More

The Portland Expo Center is an old facility that was opened in 1959 for Oregon's Centennial, and it does show its age. There are two or three separate buildings so more than one show can be going on at one time. They are all very plain and warehouse like with not much in them except a plain concrete floor. For...

My favorite item in this show is the Lowrance Learning Center. It always gives me insight and new learnings about running my electronics.

This is not the newest place in which to hold a convention, but there are a number of great pluses here: The staff is so very friendly. This place is easy to get into and out of, even with vehicles. The staff works hard to maintain the space. The lobby areas had been freshly painted the week we arrived and... More
