Salem Oregon: The “Cherry City.”

Salem, Oregon is a beautiful location to host a conference, convention or training event.

Salem, Oregon, founded in 1842, is the capital city and political hub of Oregon. I have visited Salem many times for work and conferences and think it is a wonderful community. Located in the Willamette Valley, Salem, is the home to approximately 155,000 residents. State government is Salem’s largest employer. The city is also a hub for area farming communities. In the 1990s several computer-oriented manufacturing plants established businesses in Salem.

Although there are lots of innovative small and mid-sized businesses in Salem, some of the areas top employers are: Salem-Keizer School District, Salem Hospital, Chemeketa Community College, NORPAC Foods, May Trucking Company, and the State Accident Insurance Fund. Salem is also home to George Fox University, Willamette University, and Corbin University.
