Metro Portland Maine - A Working Waterfront City


Seascapes and cityscapes blend harmoniously in Portland, perched on a peninsula, jutting out into island-studded Casco Bay. Within a 20-minute radius of Maine’s southern metropolitan hub, you’ll find a variety of landscapes and towns to explore.

In Scarborough, your attendees can enjoy a stroll on a sandy beach or a team-building canoe trip through a salt marsh. Westbrook’s Performing Arts Center is a state-of-the-art venue minutes from downtown Portland in a burgeoning arts and tech riverfront town. Grab an authentic lobster roll and photograph renowned Portland Head Light while watching surf crash upon Cape Elizabeth’s rocky coast. The state’s largest retail center is located in South Portland, near the airport and several hotel and conference centers. Freeport entices travelers to find fabulous outlet bargains, but your group can also experience active adventures there with L.L.Bean’s Outdoor Discovery School.

In Portland, older architecture blends gracefully with the new as you stroll along the working waterfront or the cobblestone streets of the Old Port section of town. Portland is easy to navigate by foot, taxi or bus. Small parks and squares dot the landscape, offering comfortable respite for urban explorers. Intriguing shops and cozy coffee and teahouses beckon to passersby. Harbor cruises, historic buildings, and galleries nestle along the waterfront.

On a stroll through the Old Port, one of the country’s more successful warehouse revitalization efforts, you’ll hear the squall of gulls and the low moan of bell buoys as you watch fishermen unloading their daily catch. Portland’s waterfront is still very much a working port, an integral and thriving part of the local economy. Underlying the latest tech, fashion, and culinary scene is a natural authenticity and a deep sense of continuity. With sophisticated style and artistic sensibilities, Portland is never-the-less unpretentious and welcoming.

Meeting Facilities in the Heart of Maine


When both work and play are essential, the Greater Portland area excels as host to its business visitors. Maine inns, resorts and centers welcome corporate groups with special rates and conference packages to suit every function, retreat or product launch. A peaceful place for associates to gather, southern Maine's open spaces and natural settings nourish creativity and encourage relaxation, while its busy urban center offers meeting facilities that cater to commerce, entertainment and culinary indulgence with plenty of after-hours options.

Corporate functions in first class accommodations


Take advantage of Greater Portland's first class accommodations for large corporate functions and galas. The area's large hotels lend assistance when seamless planning is essential. Take advantage of knowledgeable on-site meeting planners and first-rate caterers that will help your group focus on the business at hand.

Pre and Post Conference trips


Your delegates may want to extend their stay in Maine with a variety of pre and post-conference trips. Our service team can suggest daytrips or weeklong outings; from the mountains to the sea, there’s so much to discover and so many reasons to turn a business trip into a real vacation.

SOUTH & MID-COASTAL MAINE


Charming towns and villages dot the coast both south and north of Portland. Enjoy forts and lighthouses, amusement parks and maritime museums, salt marshes and beaches. Kittery and Freeport are home to wonderful outlet shopping, and outdoor outfitter L.L. Bean, in Freeport, is a destination unto itself.

BAR HARBOR & ACADIA NATIONAL PARK


Maine’s only national park is located less than four hours north of Portland, near the resort town of Bar Harbor. The Park Loop Road, hiking trails and carriage paths offer spectacular views and a variety of activities. As you head north, visit the quaint villages of Boothbay Harbor, Rockport and Camden, boasting terrific art galleries, shops and windjammer cruises.

MOUNTAINS & LAKES REGION


Rustic cabins, camping, swimming and boating in the clear waters of Maine’s lakes…if you love to be active outdoors, this is the region for you! Enjoy mountain biking, fishing, hunting, canoeing, kayaking, whitewater rafting, cross-country or downhill skiing, and the wildlife of these unspoiled landscapes.

THEMED TRIPS


There’s something for everyone in Maine! Art lovers can follow the Maine Art Museum Trail and immerse themselves in works of art from ancient to contemporary. If lighthouses set you aglow, you can seek out the more than 60 beacons that illuminate the craggy coast. The Maine Birding Trail is a valuable resource for avid birders who want to see Maine’s feathered friends. Moose watching, whale watching and other wildlife tours are also available in various regions throughout the state.
