Lunch & Presentation with Travel Oregon, Why Guides are the Best Way to Experience Oregon

A journey around Oregon provides a bold study in contrasts. In this land of makers, you’ll encounter countless purveyors of craft beer, carefully sourced and roasted coffees, exquisitely prepared farm-to-table foods, and legions of artisans who handcraft everything from ukuleles to bicycles. You’ll also pass through an untamed landscape that showcases Oregon’s wild side and delights photographers, hikers and nature lovers. The state’s Scenic Byways pass by rushing rivers abundant with salmon and steelhead, craggy mountain peaks capped year-round with snow, out-of-this-word lava beds littered with bizarre geological formations, and rugged stretches of coastline dominated by massive headlands and fragrant pine forests.
In this session you will receive:
• Oregon Overview
• Oregon Tour Operators Guides and Outfitters
• Connect to Oregon partners

Greg Eckhart, Director of Global Sales, Travel Oregon
