Baltimore Convention Center is centrally located downtown.
Walkways connect many downtown hotels and the Inner
Harbor, with its colorful shops, restaurants, and
tourist attractions, such as the National Aquarium
and the Maryland Science Center. Oriole Park at Camden
Yards, built in the style of the great stadiums of
the past, is just across the street, and other popular
attractions and hotels are within a short walking
distance. With its waterfront location, outstanding
public transportation network, and close proximity
to New York, Philadelphia, and Washington DC, Baltimore
qualifies as a prime destination for convention goers.
Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) is
served by many U.S. and international carriers. Various
forms of transportation such as shuttle busses, taxis,
limousines, rental cars and light rail are available
