Parking + Accommodations

Where to stay, where to park, and where to go to get the most out of your BuildRight Conference + Expo experience.

The location for the 2024 BuildRight Conference + Expo looks a little different this year. We are excited to be in Portland’s Central Eastside Industrial District which is home to some of Portland’s most sought out local makers, designers, and boundary-pushing creatives, as well as countless inventive restaurants, bars, and shops like Cargo, City Liquidators, Westward Whiskey Distillery, and more. This inspiring district in Portland is just over the Willamette River coming from Downtown Portland and has been revitalized and reinvigorated to provide Portland locals and visitors a fun and safe area to explore.

The Location for the the 2024 BuildRight Conference + Expo – The Factor Building
