The Hilton Portland and Executive Towers Information
Hilton Portland and Executive Towers will be the headquarters hotel for WBC 2012. And even more importantly, this will be networking central as attendees convene here to partake in the Congress Hospitality Lounge!
Hilton Portland and Executive Towers
The airport servicing Portland, Oregon, is the Portland International Airport (PDX). The airport is located nine miles north of downtown Portland and is conveniently connected to the city center via MAX light rail train.
Portland's great transportation system and walkable streets make it easy and pleasant to get anywhere in town. Within the Free Rail Zone, a 330-block area in the central city, there's no charge for transportation aboard MAX light rail trains, trolleys, or streetcars. Riders lucky enough to catch the historic Vintage Trolley (Sundays only) along the MAX route are even treated to a guided tour. The Free Rail Zone also stretches across the Willamette River to include stops at the Rose Garden Arena (home to the Portland Trail Blazers), the Oregon Convention Center, and Lloyd Center Mall. There's also no sales tax in Oregon, which makes shopping that much more fun here!
If you are from a country other than the United States, you will need a valid passport and/or visa to attend WBC 2012. We recommend that you make your application early to accommodate processing time. Registered attendees will receive an informational letter with the confirmation of registration.
