A group rate at the Hilton Portland & Executive Tower is available at $139 per night plus tax and fees. Book online at www.portland.hilton.com and use the Group/Convention Code: OCT. Or call 1-800-HILTONS and let them know you're with the OCTA Event. To receive the group rate and guarantee a room, reservations must be booked by July 25th.
This year's COPAC Silent Auction will be split between both the Monday evening Welcome Reception at the Hilton, and the Tuesday evening reception at the Departure Lounge at the Nines. All attendees are encouraged to donate an item for the auction to raise money for Oregon Cable's political action fund. Items can be sent directly to OCTA prior to the conference, or brought with you to the event.
SPONSORSHIP & NETWORKING MEETINGS
OCTA will again have 15-20 minute one-on-one networking meetings available to event sponsors on the morning of Tuesday, August 26th. Meetings are available with representatives from Comcast, Charter Communications, BendBroadband and Wave Broadband. Gold Sponsors ($1000) get 3 meetings, Silver Sponsors ($750) get two meetings, and Bronze Sponsors ($500) get one meeting. These meetings fill up fast and are on a first come first serve basis for confirmed sponsors. Contact Maggie Emery to set up your meetings at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-362-8838.
Due to limited space, we will not have tables set for exhibitors at this year's conference. If you are still interested in exhibiting or displaying information about your network/company and would like to discuss your options, please contact Maggie Emery at email@example.com or 503-362-8838.
