New Event and Conference Center
Wingspan is a brand new, 90,000-sf event and conference center at the Washington County Fair Complex in Hillsboro. The $46-million project provides space to accommodate a wide range of activities and events, including a 40,000-sf exposition hall and a state-of-the-art convention center with commercial kitchen, concessions, and office space.
The combination of mass timber and Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) panels greet visitors in the lobby, while mega-trusses and structural steel construct the event areas. The wing-like butterfly forms on the roof mimic proximity to the nearby airport, while the building’s silhouette mirrors the profile of the coastal range. The main expo hall houses 200 trade show booths, four divisible conference rooms, three meeting rooms, a commercial kitchen, and an outdoor exhibit area. The new venue offers various room configurations sized to accommodate a range of events from consumer shows, conferences and trade shows to festivals and other community uses.
