"The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful in every stage – from the initial planning to set up to banquet service - and are very quick to handle last-minute changes. " ~ Donna Herren, Oregon School Board Association
"After our first large meeting ‎I planned at the Riverhouse in 2012, staff was easily the most organized and competent to work with given our stringent government guidelines. On our first visit, we were blown away by their seamless support throughout the entire planning process as well as the actual event being carried out. I have made it a point to request to support from those same individuals for all of our follow-up meetings. I couldn't ask for a more competent team that is willing to work and accommodate our seemingly stringent needs as a Battalion. "  ~ MSG Aaron D. Carter, Oregon Army National Guard

"The Riverhouse meeting space was great, self-contained and served our purposes well. It was easy to navigate, functional, clean as it's new and felt up-to-date, in great condition. The rooms were well-appointed, clean and cozy.  The view rooms were especially cool with the river and fireplaces." ~ Laurie Richardson, White Pages Event Planner

"It’s very big, so there is lots of room to be creative with the space. The staff was so accommodating and so friendly and really appreciate how hard they worked in making sure we had everything that we needed."
"The Riverhouse meeting space is large and accommodating and the large lobby is nice to be able to spread out for  the registration desks and still allow for room for guests to network and visit without crowding the registration desk."  
~ Christin Hunter, Broker with Windermere Central Oregon Real Estate and event planner for CERF 2015
"Getting married at the Riverhouse was beyond my expectations. All the staff were so wonderful to work with. The garden area could not have been more perfect. It is such a beautiful backdrop for a wedding. The food was phenomenal! All of our guests raved about it. The day after my wedding I asked my husband if we could get married every year because it was so perfect! Thank you to everyone who helped out!"  
~Anthony & Kali Carmona, summer 2014 wedding
"The Riverhouse Hotel and Convention Center is the obvious choice for their central location, ease, and willingness to help at every step along the way. The Riverhouse meeting space has more than enough elbow room for everything from parking, checking in and networking leading into the event to sitting down to a hot, plated meal without feeling at all cramped. The grounds and facility are clean and up to date."
It’s been a pleasure to work with the staff at the Convention Center. We had six different venues in six cities over the summer for Pacific Power Wattsmart Business Breakfast Meetings and the Riverhouse Convention Center was by far our favorite and the top of our review list that we submitted to Pacific Power. "
~ Amber Peavyhouse, an Outreach Specialist with Oregon Energy Green
Thank you so very much for making our wedding so amazing!!! Nicole you are wonderful and went above and beyond to make our day perfect!!! Thank you so much to Laura from incredible events for making the decor so breathtaking! What a wonderful way to ring in the new year!  
"It's the only space large enough to fit 250 plus comfortably in a banquet setting.  All services are available with plenty of options for linens and room set up, several screens to ensure everyone can see (if doing a live-stream). It's very clean and open with high ceilings, comfortable chairs. I  like the linen options to change the feel of the event, and it's great the Riverhouse allows you to come in early to set up ahead of time."
~ Adryon Wong, executive assistant and event coordinator with Bend Broadband
