Helping Portland Celebrate All Types of Events
No one puts Portland in a box, especially when it comes to events. A cursory glance at the latest Portland Events calendar proves that our city is one of the country’s premier event destinations. We’re a town of meetings, music, meetups, and more. That’s why National Event Pros has been partnering with some of Portland’s best brands for decades to plan and facilitate world-class events of all kinds.
Consider the carnival: a destination for fun, a break from the mundane, and one heck of a logistical undertaking. A knockout carnival requires curation of dozens of event rentals, from skyscraper-sized slides to dunk tanks, all require simultaneous setup and efficient teardown. Or outdoor movies, which mandate wide swaths of lawn and perfect weather. And holiday parties, corporate events, and product launches? Each has their own list of requirements, roster of necessary event rentals, and roles for staffing.
No two events are alike, but all can benefit from the seasoned perspective of a professional event producer who’s seen dozens like them before. Whatever you’re planning, our event professionals will make it happen, and make it better. Think you can stump us? Give us a try.

Portland Event Rentals
Mastering your event goals has never been more achievable. And staying within budget? It’s never been easier. They key: quality event rentals. Our catalog of event rentals is a budget stretcher and a task completer. Renting instead of buying can have a multiplying effect on an event budget. And our Portland-area delivery, quality control, and setup services mean your checklist could be a lot shorter in short order.
For many, the word rental produces connotations of carpet steamers, scissor lifts, and little else. But the world of event rentals couldn’t be more comprehensive or inspiring. Yes, inspiring. What else would you call a Hollywood-grade snow machine that turns any Portland venue into a frosty winter wonderland? Or a virtual reality system that allows guests to create art in three dimensions?
Our event rental catalog covers the full spectrum of event factors, from expected staples to eye-popping showcase pieces. You may not be shocked to hear that we have a robust collection of photo booths and bounce houses, but did you know that we also rent 100-foot water slides, mechanical carnival rides, inflatable obstacle courses, dunk tanks, zip lines, and mechanical bulls? Yes, it may be time to define rental.
Nothing gets a party started like the heart-pounding, head-swinging, hand-wringing thrill of a bull in full defense mode.
Portland knows how to be on the leading edge of food and beer—why should virtual reality be any different?
One of the Pacific Northwest’s only mobile zip lines. We’ve delivered our system to Fortune 500 corporations, product launches, and epic family reunions all across the Greater Portland Area.
If you only equate inflatables with bounce houses, you’re in for quite the surprise.
Today, dunk tanks have gotten safer, easier to operate, and some would even say, innovative. The only thing that hasn’t changed? The laughter that explodes with every successful splash.
Whether at a party, meeting, or conference, two locales always seem to have a steady line: the open bar and the photo booth.
Mechanical Carnival Rides
From corporate holiday parties to high school dances and even large family reunions, carnival rides have a way of bringing out the inner child in us all.
