Is Portland, OR a good location for a major content strategy conference?

My answer to Is Portland, OR a good location for a major content strategy conference? on Quora

I can’t comment on the relevance to Content Strategy, but having been to both OSCON and DjangoCon in Portland a few times I think it’s an absolutely superb city for hosting a conference.

Good facilities, a free tram service that covers the main venues and hotels, superb food, small enough to be walkable but large enough to deal with a large number of conference delegates—and it’s a great city in its own right hence a desirable destination for potential attendees.

I live in London, but Portland is probably my favourite US city for attending a conference. I can’t wait to get back there—in fact I liked it so much I took my wife there for our wedding anniversary.

It looks like there will be at least one Content Strategy related conference in Portland next year though—LavaCon 2012 is set to take place in October: http://lavacon.org/portland/ and http://lanyrd.com/2012/lavacon/
