Founded in February 1989, Coast to Coast is a special services organization designed to provide the hospitality and entertainment industry with superior event planning, staffing, and security. In 1993, we expanded our services to encompass parking and traffic control, ushering, ticket taking, alcohol monitoring services and valet.

Our primary goal is to assure a secure, efficient, and friendly environment for events we serve. We accomplish this goal by being courteous to our guests, attentive to the needs of our clients, respectful of each individual’s uniqueness, and enthusiastic about performing our professional services.

Although based in Portland, Oregon Coast to Coast Events is literally a coast to coast operation. Serving clients across the U.S. with a trained staff of over 700 full and part-time employees, we can provide guest services and security for any event large or small.
