Newly LEED-EB Silver Certified Salem Convention Center Named “Best Convention Center in Oregon”
Our location in the heart of Salem’s downtown, adjoined to The Salem Convention Center, is a real advantage for business travelers. Since the facility opened in 2005, nearly a million event attendees have traveled here to attend multi-day conventions, conferences, workshops, meetings, weddings, special occasions and more. It’s been our pleasure to accommodate many SCC’s visitors from around our state, nation and around the globe.
Our partnership with The Salem Convention Center has always been a special one, and we’re so happy that they’ve received some much deserved accolades! The Salem Convention Center is quickly becoming the preferred venue with professional meeting planners in our region, and it’s easy to see why.
In addition to a professional and experienced staff, 30,000+ square feet of versatile and modern event space, the facility was designed and constructed with the intent of conforming to the standards of LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. The interior is built with local recycled materials (all from within a 500 mile radius of Salem) and features large expansive windows for natural light.
Just last month, The Salem Convention Center was recognized for their sustainable efforts by being awarded LEED-EB Silver Certification! This is a major accomplishment being as there are currently just 15 buildings in the state of Oregon (just 2 in Salem) with this level of certification!
In addition, the Salem Convention Center was named “Best Convention Center in Oregon” by readers of Northwest Meetings & Events magazine,the premiere magazine for meeting and event planners from Alaska, British Columbia, Idaho, Oregon and Washington for the 2nd year in a row! Last month, SCC team traveled to Seattle, WA to attend the magazine’s awards ceremony with representatives from top venue and meeting service organizations all over the Northwest regions.
We congratulate The Salem Convention Center for such well deserved recognition! We’re proud to be their official hotel!
