As an event planning business we have used Pure Space on many occasions for all different types of events. The clean lay-out and natural light provides a blank slate for creative ideas. The space is malleable and opens itself up to anything you imagine it to be. Pure Space can be used for a high energy event as we did for Rail-Volution, or just as easily, a chic, swanky fundraiser, like the one we produced for the American Red-Cross. Not only is the environment fabulous, but one of the best parts of planning an event in Pure Space is having access to the resources and expertise of the West Coast Event Team. If you are looking for a unique, urban space for your event, Pure Space is a stand out!Sent on 06/20/2013

It was a fantastic event. Thank you to DJ and Kayse and Duane for all of the support and willingness to work with us. The collective effort helped us put on a great event!Sent on 09/26/2013

I recently had my wedding reception here. It was very appealing to me because it was beautiful, great lighting, and big enough to fit my large wedding party. I will start by saying the reception itself was beautiful, so much fun, and to the guests it went off without a hitch! We had such a great time the night of the wedding.Sent on 11/05/2015
However- if I had to do it over again, I would never have had my reception here. Working with West Coast Events was terrible. The customer service was awful, and prices outrageous.
We were given a range of which most people can expect to pay to have what we were told was "a very nice reception." Not adding much over the tables, chairs, lights, and drapes, serve ware, and linens (all things you have to have), it was THOUSANDS of dollars over the TOP dollar amount. Keep in mind we brought in everything we could ourselves (candles, centerpieces etc.) to help reduce the cost and it was still over budget. Before you book this, I would make sure you are not on a tight budget.
We did not appreciate the attitude, and slow service we received from the West Coast Events staff member helping us. My husband, Mom, and I consistently felt like we were being talked down to, and treated like idiots. When we tried to talk to the person above her, it only got worse.
If you do book this space and they start throwing in "free things", beware- if you have a complaint later they throw this right back in your face. As if they threw in the free things as leverage in case anything went wrong.
It was HOT. Everyone was drenched in sweat 1 hour into the reception. We were told by other vendors we used (who were at the reception) that they asked staff many times to turn the AC on and they refused.
I had NO issues with any other vendors I used (DJ, photographer, photo booth, videographer, florist, hair/make up, cake, caterer). The customer service was really too bad, because the space is SO beautiful. See yelp for more.
A great place for a large scale event. From Weddings to Corporate events, we've DJ'd a lot of things here. It's a very modern place with room for easily over 1,000 people. They are managed by West Coast Events and we've always had great working relationships with people from here. If you really want to get married in the Pear District this may be a place worth checking out.
Pure Space is one of Portland's top large event spaces. Its massive windows provide an airy outdoor feel yet your guests are protected from our city's fickle elements. Modern, spacious, and airy your wedding (or other event) pictures will be filled with light. Pure Space also offers a great central location close to downtown, popular landmarks, and hotels.
Pure Space is one of the most versatile and fun venues to shoot at. You never know what type of theme or set up there will be! We love shooting this space!
