As an ongoing effort to develop a new hotel, the Portland metropolitan area is considering a private-sector development proposal to build a new 600-room convention hotel (convention hotel or OCC hotel) proximate to the Oregon Convention Center (OCC). As part of the process, the governing bodies charged with assessing the merit of the proposal, including Metro, the City of Portland, Multnomah County, and the Portland Development Commission, sought additional information on key issues to assist in the effort. SAG was engaged to assist in this effort. The project involved analyzing the OCC historical and future booked events, OCC lost business, surveying the target market, estimating hotel performance and projecting economic impact the hotel could have on the OCC, the City, County and State. The findings concluded that the development of the new hotel would have a significant positive impact on the market.
