Event Description:
Join us for Business After Hours at PDX Pop Up Shops' Pioneer Place location!

​PDX Pop Up Shops are back for the eighth year. This program, started by the Portland Business Alliance in 2009, turns downtown vacant retail space into temporary destinations for local businesses to set up shop for the season. The program has been used as a model for retail development programs throughout the country.

The PDX Pop Up Shops have been a launch pad for permanent shops, such as Crafty Wonderland, Boys Fort and Bridge and Burn and has resulted in a nearly 90 percent lease rate for spaces showcased under the program.

About Business after Hours:
Business after Hours offers an opportunity to create new business relationships by networking in a relaxed setting that offers delicious appetizers, door prizes, and refreshments.
