The Hilton Portland Downtown and Duniway Portland is the headquarters hotel for the DPP2018 meeting. Conveniently located in the downtown Portland, the Hilton Portland Downtown is located a short 15-minute MAX Light Rail ride to the Oregon Convention Center. All scientific sessions will take place at the Oregon Convention Center. Most of the ancillary activities will take place at the Hilton.

Choosing DPP-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 DPP’s cost of meeting space and facilities. Attendees are encouraged to choose the designated hotels.

DPP has obtained a limited block of government rate rooms for DPP 2018. The government rate will be the prevailing rate at the time of hotel check-in. Proof of government employment must be shown at check-in to receive the government rate.
