Join us in vibrant Baltimore

All conference events will be held at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel. Located in Baltimore’s bustling Inner Harbor area, the Renaissance provides visitors with a sophisticated waterfront experience and convenient downtown location near the Baltimore Convention Center. It is only 20 minutes away from Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI). Also nearby are popular attractions, including the American Visionary Art Museum (the location of our Monday evening dinner), the National Aquarium, the Maryland Science Center, the Baltimore Zoo and the Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine.
