Fodor’s named Baltimore one of the top 15 waterfront cities in the world. Zagat ranked it the No. 2 restaurant city in America in 2015. Baltimore’s “convention campus” embraces the world-famous Inner Harbor, but the convention package and the attendee experience is just part of the story. The city is touted for its convenience, service and delivering a strong ROI.
Baltimore is easy to get to and easy to get around. Located at the crossroads of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states–a region of 50 million people–gives planners an edge in attracting attendees. The Baltimore Convention Center is situated downtown and linked to Inner Harbor hotels and restaurants by overhead walkways. There are more than 9,000 downtown hotel rooms, featuring all of the brands you know.
There’s plenty to do in the off-hours as well. From world-class museums and attractions to fine dining and the authentic Baltimore crab feast, there is something to discover at every turn.
