Three City Alliance

Portland, Pittsburgh, and Milwaukee are three dynamic destinations that share numerous positive attributes — compelling attractions, state-of-the-art convention facilities and a bone-deep commitment to outstanding customer service. Because of our shared vision and commitment to provide the best convention product, we have formed a three-city sales and marketing alliance. Our alliance can provide significant financial and logistical benefits to organizations booking any combination of the three cities. Planners save time by efficiently fostering relationships with multiple convention and visitors bureaus while learning about three destinations that offer their organizations superior hospitality.

For additional information on the three-city alliance, please contact Michael Smith, Vice President of Convention Sales, Travel Portland; Karl Pietrzak, Vice President of Convention Sales, Visit Pittsburgh; or Jeff Baryenbruch, Executive Director of Sales, VISIT Milwaukee.
