Get Wild for Meetings - An Eventective User from Portland OR

It is easy to overlook the Oregon Zoo as an event venue. The Zoo has multiple meeting areas in their Cascade Creast area that allow you to hold your meeting in a comfortable and cozy location. All of the equipment you need is available for rental. You can also make arrangements to have an animal show during your meeting. Staff goes out of their way to accommodate you and make sure you have everything you need. The only concern is you have to use their catering which can get expensive. But for a cant miss experience you cant get any better then this. Holiday parties here are something extremely special. During Zoo Lights season you can make it a meeting and a Christmas experience.
