Nestled between the majestic Cascade Range and the rugged Oregon Coast, this city boasts an unparalleled backdrop of lush greenery, serene parks, and the iconic Willamette River.

Returning to Portland, the first hosting city of BRMConnect, for the ten-year BRM community celebration is a momentous occasion. It’s a homecoming filled with nostalgia and the promise of rekindling that same powerful energy that initially brought attendees to this incredible city a decade ago.
