The Hilton Portland Downtown is the headquarters hotel for the SHOCK19 meeting. Conveniently located in the downtown Portland, the Hilton Portland Downtown is located just a short light-rail ride away from the Portland International Airport. All scientific sessions and ancillary activities will take place at the Hilton.

Choosing GSCCM-designated hotels helps to offset meeting costs by ensuring that the contracted-discount room-block threshold is met. Not meeting the contracted-discount room block revokes the facilities discount applied to GSCCM's cost of meeting space and facilities. Attendees are encouraged to choose the designated hotel.
