How do I design a layout with two portals?

I have three tables: Contacts, Accounts and Events.

 

I would like to create a layout where for an event with a portal within in which I can associate one or more contacts and another portal in which I can associate one or more accounts.

 

I can get the Accounts portal to work fine but I can't get the contacts (participants) portal to work properly. I can't even get anything to show in the drop down.

 

The contact data I'm trying to list in the portal is External_Reference which is a caluation in the Contacts table made up of a concatenation of last and first names and account. The Relationship picture below shows me linking to the ContactID field but that was during a temporary experiemnt of mine. The result is the same.

 

I don't want the two portals to be dependant on each other.

 

Why is one working but not the other??????

 

I've included some screenshots below. Any guidance would be appreciated. I would not be surprised if I've gotten lost in the parent/child or some many-to-many nexus.
