  • The Warehouse at Oriole Park at Camden Yards 333 West Camden Street, Designated Hitters Lounge, 4th Floor Baltimore, MD, 21201 United States (map)

Presented by Visit Baltimore

What to Expect:

Baltimore has been counted among the top 10 cities for growth in our creative class, thanks in part to the affordability and accessibility of our city. This statistic combined with the shift in traveler mindset from collecting things to collecting experiences led Visit Baltimore to develop a robust “Meet the Maker” campaign, showcasing the many types of workshops and learning opportunities visitors can take advantage of when they explore our urban destination.

Presented by Visit Baltimore, the tourism marketing organization for Baltimore City, participating panelists will discuss how the campaign was developed, why and how the Creative Class thrives in Baltimore and how we can continue to leverage experiences to attract leisure and business travelers.

Afterward, take a guided tour of Oriole Park at Camden Yards from a whole new perspective. Enjoy the charm of the ballpark from club level suites, the press level, and even the Orioles dugout.

Oriole Park revolutionized baseball when it debuted on Opening Day 1992. Now, here's your chance to go behind the scenes of this historic ballpark and learn more about how it has continued to change the baseball fan's experience ever since. 

Attendees can park in Lot A and enter through the 333 W. Camden Street Lobby. View this Orioles Parking Map for directions.
