METRO OREGON CONVENTION CENTER/ PORTLAND EXPO CENTER EVENT DECORATOR SERVICES Due: August 23, 2018 @ 2:00 pm REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS RFQu 3534 Metro, a metropolitan service district organized under the laws of the State of Oregon and the Metro Charter, located at 600 NE Grand Avenue, Portland, OR 97232-2736, is requesting qualification submissions for Event Decorator Services for the Oregon Convention Center (OCC) and Portland Expo Center (Expo). Submissions are due no later than 2:00 PM Pacific Time, August 23, 2018, in Metro’s business offices at 600 NE Grand Avenue, Portland, OR 97232-2736, Attention: Jon Deveaux, Procurement Analyst, RFQu 3534. The purpose of this RFQu is to qualify firms for the following services: Expo is looking for service providers that can periodically augment their in-house inventory of equipment, as well as provide equipment and services that can convert and/or transform exhibit hall spaces [or other areas] to more of a ‘ballroom’ atmosphere and look, as may be requested by different clients and Expo produced events. OCC is beginning a large renovation to the original side of the facility in August of 2018, with additional projects to follow in subsequent years. During these renovations, OCC may desire to use an Exhibit Hall as a Ballroom, soften the look of construction activities in areas, or similar space transformations. OCC does not intend to provide this as a service to clients, but as a mitigation of the construction activities or similar disruption to normal operations. Proposals can be viewed and downloaded from the Oregon Procurement Information Network (ORPIN), at http://orpin.oregon.gov/open.dll/. Metro may accept or reject any or all bids, in whole or in part, or waive irregularities not affecting substantial rights if such action is deemed in the public interest. Metro extends equal opportunity to all persons and specifically encourages minority, women-owned and emerging small businesses to access and participate in this and all Metro projects, programs and services.
