Monday, August 14th Networking Activities
Family Night (6:30 PM – 10:00 PM) – The Great Outdoors:
Explore “The Great Outdoors” during our family night event while sporting your favorite athletic or outdoor gear! Dressing up for our special events is a long-time Western District tradition and we hope you join in! This family-oriented event will be a fun-filled evening with delicious treats and family-oriented activities at the nearby Rose Quarter Commons – Main Amphitheater outside the Memorial Coliseum entrance, adjacent to the Moda Center. The event is within walking distance of the conference hotel and will feature activities, food trucks, farmers market vendors, and Western District fun! This event will require an additional ticket with pricing set at $35 for Western District members & $65 for guests and non-Western District members. Registration will be facilitated through the ITE International Annual Meeting website. We hope to see you all there!
We’ve already got a great lineup of food trucks for our event including Pidgin Hole, Alchemy Sandwich Co, Black Star Grill, and Churros Locos! Stay tuned for more updates as we partner with other great local companies!
Need ideas about what to wear? Give a subtle nod to Portland being the epicenter for some of the biggest sportswear companies by wearing your Nike, Adidas, Columbia Sportswear, or Under Armour outerwear. You could celebrate all the amazing outdoor opportunities Oregon has to offer by coming decked out in your favorite outdoor gear…kayaking, cycling, running, fly fishing, rock climbing, golfing, hiking, snowboarding…whatever inspires you! We can’t wait to see what you wear!
