Ecotrust Event Spaces provides premier venues for green meetings and events. Venues where individuals, communities and organizations can convene to celebrate, share ideas and build the relationships that will inspire positive changes in the world.
Our venues have been renovated to celebrate and enhance the character of their original structures while incorporating environmentally-innovative materials and techniques, and they are beautiful to boot. The use of natural light, windows, exposed brick, hardwood floors and lofty ceilings create healthy meeting spaces.
Our beautifully restored historic buildings combine with state-of-the-art amenities to craft transformative events in a warm and creative atmosphere. We design our services to meet the specific needs of your event to make your planning process a pleasure and your event a success.
• State-of-the-art audiovisual systems
• Onsite staff
• Contemporary workshop-style furniture
• An inspirational list of caterers to choose from
• Catering staging kitchens.
Since 2001, our experienced event staff has helped bring to fruition hundreds of community gatherings, neighborhood forums, corporate retreats, weddings, holiday parties, cocktail receptions and a few dog shows--and we look forward to working with you.
Sustainable Qualification Summary
We know that being authentically green is about more than acquiring green certifications. What really matters is that our venue and services are of the highest quality and are sustainable to the core. Having said that, we do have a few certified bragging points. Portland's flagship eco-savvy building, we're the first historic renovation in the Nation to become Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certified. We offset our facility's electrical (carbon) use by purchasing Green Tags from Bonneville Environmental Foundation. We allow only the most sustainable caterers in town into our kitchens. These chefs love the bounty of this place and prove it in their menus. Finding inspiration in local and seasonal ingredients, our caterers are helping to build a robust regional food economy.
Gold LEED Certification for Natural Capital Center, RecycleWorks Award, PGE Earth Advantage Certified (now known as Earth Advantage)
