Getting to Baltimore

The closest major airport to the conference site is BWI Marshall Airport.  The Baltimore Convention Center is approximately a 20 minute (12 mile) drive from BWI and a 35 minute ride using the MTA Light Rail train system. Please check the Light Rail Service Alerts prior to departure to check for delays or shutdowns. Routes with directions to each stop can be found here. BWI is at Off-Site Parking Pick-up (Zone 4) and attendees are recommended to get off at the Convention Center stop.

The convention center is less than 2 miles from Baltimore's Penn Station and can be reached within 10 minutes by taxi or ride share services.

A variety of ground transportation options are available upon arrival including public transit, rental cars, shuttles, taxis and app-based ride services.

*Please be advised that on Sunday, 28 January, there will be heavy traffic in the vicinity of the Baltimore Convention Center and surrounding downtown hotels. This is due to the AFC Championship football game taking place at M&T Bank Stadium.
Traffic Advisory:

  • Time Periods: 1pm-3pm and 5pm-7pm
  • Road Closure: W Hamburg St leading into M&T Bank Stadium will be blocked.

To avoid potential delays, we recommend the following:

  1. Plan your arrival during non-peak hours, especially during the game (3pm-5pm).
  2. Utilize alternative routes, such as route 395 or public transportation to navigate around the affected area.
