Building Brands Through Experiences

Experience. There’s no denying it’s become a buzz word for brands across industries, from tourism and hospitality, to food and beverage, retail and design. How do you engage with your customer? What makes a brand memorable? People now are curating experiences like they used to collect souvenirs, and sharing it all on social media. (Museum of Ice Cream, anyone?). So we’re bringing in a panel of design and brand experts to discuss how sensory experiences – like music, crafts and visual storytelling – are building brand identity.

Drop by during the first hour for an exclusive look at our "Stay Human" activation, an extension of Kimpton’s first-ever social experiment, which is all about creating heartfelt human connections between guests of a single room. There will be live music, noshes from Il Solito and a cash bar, followed by the panel discussion.


*5pm - 6pm: open house-style reception with tours of Hotel Vintage’s "Stay Human" room concept.

*6pm - 7pm: discussion on ‘Building Brands through Experiences,’ including panelists from Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, FINE Design and DIY Bar.

This Festival Event has ended.

Kimpton Hotel Vintage Portland


Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants

We believe that heartfelt, human connections make life worth living. So we come to work every day eager to engage with our guests and each other. It’s the first thing on our daily “to do” list. And we want to be more than your home away from home. We want to be the escape from home you never thought you needed – whether you’re on the road for business or pleasure.

Kimpton Hotel Vintage Portland: The pioneers who made it to Oregon didn’t do things by the book, and neither do we. Featuring graffiti-inspired cork art, a lobby that doubles as an urban tasting room, and a game lounge for adults, Kimpton Hotel Vintage Portland proves that it’s not afraid to be a trailblazer. Come join us in keeping things weird (yet luxe!) in our historic building in downtown Portland.
