Metro’s venues draw over 1 million patrons to Portland every year, including the Oregon Zoo, Portland Expo Center, Oregon Convention Center and the Portland5 Centers for the Arts. Scott Cruickshank, General Manager of Metro Visitor Venues, talks about how they drive economic development, a strong hospitality and tourism industry, and job growth for the region. We also discuss the long-anticipated Convention Center's headquarter hotel, new Zoo projects, and ponder Portland’s hotel outlook.
