Visit Baltimore's second annual Meet Local Educational Forum and Tradeshow took place on Tuesday, April 25, at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Our goal was to create greater awareness among our regional customer base of Baltimore as a convention, meeting and event destination.
The event kicked off with a panel discussion featuring thought leaders from key industries who spoke about the innovation and transformation taking place in Baltimore right now and answered questions from the audience. Visit Baltimore would like to thank the panelists, Calvin Butler, CEO of BGE; Dr. Leanna Wen, Baltimore City Health Commissioner; Jen Meyer, CEO of Betamore; Jeannie Howe, executive director of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance; and William Cole, president and CEO of Baltimore Development Corporation for their participation; as well as Al Hutchinson, president and CEO of Visit Baltimore for moderating.
A tradeshow reception followed the forum with 33 exhibitors representing the hotels, museums and attractions in Baltimore that draw meetings and conventions. More than 50 industry professionals attended the event. Thank you to everyone who helped make the event a success!
