Should additional assistance be required, please call (503) 226-1611.

It is important that you have written confirmation of your reservation from the hotel before leaving for Portland.
The Hilton Portland Downtown is holding preferred reservations for NAST through Tuesday, March 6. After that date, room assignments will be made on a space-available basis only, and the NAST group rate may not be offered. Prospective attendees whose plans are uncertain at this time are encouraged to make reservations now, and cancel later if necessary. (Please review hotel policies regarding the time frame for cancellation without penalty.) Once the hotel is sold out or the NAST room block is filled, other accommodations will need to be secured. Unfortunately, NAST is not able to assist participants in finding alternate lodging.
