COVID-19 Update: Hosting and Story Ideas

As the impact of COVID-19 on Portland’s hospitality community is assessed, Travel Portland has adapted its process for pitch materials and hosting capabilities. The media newsroom has paused posting new story ideas while the impact of COVID-19 is analyzed. The story ideas currently available are regularly reviewed. However, due to the quickly changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, please confirm details directly with each business mentioned for the most up-to-date information.

As Portland enters future phases of reopening and recovery, new pitch content will be added to reflect the evolving and stabilizing hospitality landscape, trends, new openings and recovery stories. At any time—now or in the future—please reach out directly to for assistance with story ideas.

Portland is in Phase 1 of its reopening plan, which encourages individuals to minimize non-essential travel. Accordingly, Travel Portland has paused hosting media until circumstances are amenable.
