About the Conference Venue

Oregon Convention Center
777 NE Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd
Portland, OR 97232


The 2023 Annual Meeting of the Animal Behavior Society will be held within the Oregon Convention Center. It is just 8 miles from Portland International Airport (PDX), visitors can access the Oregon Convention Center (OCC) via Interstate 5 North from Exit 302A–Rose Quarter, or from Interstate 84 West Exit 1–Lloyd Boulevard.

Lloyd is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in downtown Portland. It contains the Oregon Convention Center, Oregon’s largest shopping mall, the Veterans Memorial Coliseum and the Moda Center. It plays host to sporting events, parades, community marathons and concerts. Everything is a short light rail or streetcar stop away, including many fine hotels, restaurants and shops.

You’ll see vigorous growth the moment you arrive. Cranes top the skyline, and numerous development projects – some commercial, some residential, plus new public plazas and green spaces – are rapidly changing the neighborhood’s vibe to one that’s inviting, exciting, and sustainable.
