Three City Collective

It's never been easier to take your attendees from coast to coast. Since 2004, VISIT Milwaukee, VisitPITTSBURGH, and Travel Portland have partnered to save you time and money. First known as the Three-City Alliance, and now rebranded as the Three City Collective, the program offers both financial incentives and coordinated planning of the three sales and service teams. This results in seamless efficiency and exceptional service to our clients.



The collective is based on our shared vision and commitment to provide the best convention product. Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, and Portland share a number of qualities, including convention center size, sufficient number of hotels to house 1,100 to 1,500 on a peak night, range of convention services offered, and even location in proximity to rivers or lakes.

How Our Partnership Works

  • Book two or three cities and get a financial incentive. 
  • Joint sales events, tradeshows, and marketing initiatives.
  • Both Sales and Convention Service staffs of all three cities work closely together, making the sales process and servicing of the conventions seamless.

Key Advantages for Meeting Planners

  • Planners save time by working with three similar cities that communicate with each other regularly and are fully prepared for the group’s needs.

  • For groups that require their conventions to rotate between several regions, the East/Midwest/West locations of Pittsburgh/Milwaukee/Portland are also ideal.

Groups Who Have Booked 3-Cities:

  • American Massage Therapy Association
  • Collegiate Information and Visitors Services Association
  • Education Market Association
  • Engineers Without Borders
  • American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education
