When Fodor's named Baltimore as one of the top 15 waterfront cities in the world, when National Geographic Traveler called Baltimore one of the 10 most "underrated" cities in America and Zagat ranked it the second best restaurant city in America in 2015, people noticed. But meeting professionals who have held an event in Baltimore weren't surprised a bit. They already know that Baltimore's "convention campus" embraces the world-famous Inner Harbor, which is surrounded by first-class hotels, highly rated restaurants, exciting attractions and museums and a variety of shopping. But as a meetings destination, Baltimore offers more than this exceptional visitor experience. It offers meetings with more - more convenience and service and delivers a strong ROI - all adding up to more value.
Baltimore is easy to get to by air, rail and highway. And once you’re here, the 1.2-million-square-foot Baltimore Convention Center and 9,000 hotel rooms (5,500 committable) representing all of the major brands are steps from the famed Inner Harbor and its museums and attractions, dining and shopping.
