Kumoricon 2017 returns to the Oregon Convention Center!
Oregon Convention Center – Kumoricon 2017
777 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Portland, OR 97232
Kumoricon 2017 is a short light rail ride from Portland International Airport (PDX). The MAX Red Line train stops at the airport front door and serves the Oregon Convention Center transit stop, as well as the DoubleTree by Hilton convention hotel. Tickets can be purchased at any light rail stop in either direction. Trains run every 15 minutes for most of the day (see Red Line schedule).
Both the Oregon Convention Center and the DoubleTree by Hilton convention hotel are conveniently located at MAX light rail stops servicing three lines—the Red, Green, and Blue Lines. In addition, the Yellow Line stops two blocks away from the Oregon Convention Center. With its central location, you can reach Kumoricon's front door with just a single train trip from many places in the Portland metro area.
Parking is available within the Oregon Convention Center. There are also a number of nearby parking lots.

Notice to Kumoricon staff: If you are a staff member of Kumoricon 2017, please book your room now using the above reservation form. We will have a very limited number of further discounted room-nights available at the staff rate, which we will apply to existing reservations. Each qualifying and selected staff member staying in the room will receive a discount for one night of the reservation (up to a maximum of four nights). For example, if two qualifying and selected staff members are staying in the room, then two nights of the reservation will be at the discounted staff rate and the remaining nights will be at the standard discounted attendee rate. Due to the limited number of staff rate room-nights, we will use a priority system to select eligible staff. Considerations will include the distance you are traveling to the convention, and the number of staff sharing the room (three or four is best). Eligible nights to receive the staff discount are Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. After reserving your room, please apply to the staff rate using this form (staff login required).
