Portland, Oregon

Portland, Oregon is the home of this November's Real Life Conference. Connection and comfort are two key elements we are sticking with.

Venue | University of Oregon's Historic White Stag Building | 70 NW Couch St, Portland

Hotel | The Hoxton | 15 NW 4th Ave, Portland (4 minute walk from the venue)

Views | Known as the city of bridges for the 12 beautiful arches that stretch across the Willamette river which runs through the center of town.

Getting Here | This year we are stepping up accessibility. The Portland airport is easy to navigate and its carpet is so famous you can't leave with out taking a picture of your feet standing on it. Light rail runs from the airport to the venue so there will be no need to rent a car and ride sharing apps are always an option.

No matter what it is you’d like to be, do, eat or drink — even if you’ve never tried it before — You Can, in Portland.

How many tickets are available?
To keep the conference intimate we will be limiting sales to 150 tickets. We also strive to bring several women to the conference as part of our give back initiative. 

What topics will the speakers be presenting?
We focus on a balanced program. Our speakers will be addressing creativity, business, process, and social advocacy. 

What if I purchase a ticket and can't make it? 
The tickets are non-refundable, however, you can transfer your ticket to another attendee with a $40 USD ticket transfer fee. It is the purchasers responsibility to find someone to take the ticket.

Do I have to pay the full amount at once?
You can pay in full, or select the payment plan option. 

How does the payment plan option work?
Make a Deposit of $275 USD plus 4 Installments of the remaining balance billed on the first of the month.

What methods of payment do you accept?
We accept Visa and PayPal. 

Can you help me find someone to share a room with? 
Once you purchase your ticket you will be added to our attendee and alumni Facebook group, it's the perfect place to find a roommate or a lift from the airport. 

I see that lunch is included, but I can't eat wheat/dairy/nuts/shellfish/etc.
We send out questionnaires closer to the event to learn about any of your dietary restrictions. We got you!
