Pre-Conference Networking Events
2:00 to 5:00 pm

Oregon Historical Society

Oregon Historical Society

The Oregon Historical Society is dedicated to making Oregon’s long, rich history visible and accessible to all. For more than a century, we have served as the state’s collective memory, gathering and preserving a vast collection of artifacts, photographs, films, manuscripts, books, and oral histories. It exists because history is powerful and because a history as deep and rich as Oregon’s cannot be contained within a single story or point of view.

The Oregon Historical Society offers self-guided tours of its permanent and rotating exhibitions for groups of 10 to 100 people. The Hilton Portland Downtown is a 5-minute walk from the Historical Society. PLMA transportation will not be planned for this event.

2:00 to 5:00 pm

Portland Art Museum

Portland Art Museum

Coming to the Portland Art Museum from the Bata Shoe Museum in Canada, "Future Now: Virtual Sneakers to Cutting-Edge Kicks" is a groundbreaking new exhibition that features nearly sixty futuristic footwear designs like the auto-lacing Nike MAG.

It explores how cutting-edge technologies, unexpected materials, and new ideas are transforming footwear today. This provocative exhibition features digitally designed and 3D-printed shoes, sneakers made from mushroom leather and reclaimed ocean plastics, and footwear created for the metaverse. Portland is a sneaker town!

The Art Museum is a 6-minute walk from the Hilton Portland. PLMA transportation will not be planned for this event.

6:00 to 8:00 pm
