People often associate the phrase “Keep Portland Weird” with our hometown of Portland, Oregon. The sometimes-outlandish culture of Portland has become as much a part of the city’s identity as specialty coffee or craft beer and spirits. But, you may ask, what is “weird”? Portland’s brand of weird may be thought by some to be a person with colorful hair or a uni-cycling Darth Vadar playing a bagpipe engulfed in flames. To us Portland natives, weird is simply the norm. Our weird is about inclusiveness. Our weird is welcoming all walks of life with open arms, just like the PDXYZ Experience. This unique gathering is focused on bridging the generational gap in business, while breaking down the walls of traditional conferences and trade shows. This 2 ½ day business gathering in Portland, Oregon will bring together the best and brightest minds in HR, Marketing, Cyber Security, Legal and beyond, to engage in a series of discussions about talent and the universal challenges that each profession experiences. Picture an early-stage SXSW where you also experience the culture that Portland has to offer.
