Visit Baltimore Looks at the "Big Picture" at Annual Meeting

Posted on October 9, 2017

Visit Baltimore would like to thank all who attended the annual meeting at the Hilton Baltimore on October 3. If you missed the meeting, we encourage you to review our annual report and business plan, which highlights the organization's FY17 accomplishments and provides a look at FY18 priorities. The report also provides a summary of recent visitor data. We also encourage you to review Visit Baltimore's new destination video, which was unveiled as part of the meeting. With original music by Baltimorean Charles Smith, aka DJ Blaqstarr, the video can be used by all to share Baltimore's story.
