Our very first office was a closet in the basement of the downtown Portland Hilton Hotel. With little more than a phone and a handful of lights and projectors, Peter served Portland’s many fashion shows and tradeshows. Over the next 20 years, Peter started developing specialized companies to serve his growing clientele: NW Decorators, Convention and Tradeshow Services, Audio Visual Rentals and Services, and Special Events Company.
For the past 50 years, Peter Corvallis Productions has grown serving waterfront festivals, corporate events, air shows, politicians, and tradeshows as well as literally thousands of weddings. Basically, any event that takes place in a fairground, park or parking lot, ballroom or backyard you are likely to find Peter Corvallis rentals.
In the early 1990’s, two of Peter’s daughters returned to Portland to help their father run the business. Today with more than 100,000 square feet of warehouse, the family business has grown to have the largest event rental inventory in the Pacific Northwest.
As with all things in life, they come to an end. On October 11, 2016 Peter Corvallis passed away. Peter is survived by his wife, Catalina; daughters, Maria (Andy), Athena, and Demetria (Stephen); 8 grandchildren, who Peter cherished. To continue on the legacy of Peter Corvallis Productions, Maria and Athena Corvallis have taken the helm to lead the company to new adventures and honor the work their father left behind.
Peter Corvallis Productions is proud to be affiliated with the American Rental Association, the International Special Events Society, the Association of Catering and Event Professionals, and more.
