Baltimore Convention Center

One West Pratt Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21201

The Baltimore Convention Center, located in the heart of downtown Baltimore just a short walk from the Inner Harbor, is the host venue of the 26th International Congress for Conservation Biology.

Built in 1979, the convention center underwent a $151 million renovation and expansion in 1997 and today is the premier meeting venue for conferences in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States.

The 1,225,000 square venue is easily accessible by foot from downtown Baltimore and is close to the Camden MARC Train station and is only seven minutes from Baltimore's Penn Station (free buses from Penn Station to downtown Baltimore go by the convention center) and 20 minutes from the Baltimore-Washington Airport.

The Baltimore Convention Center features green design elements, including a 27,000 square foot green roof. The roof and the convention center's gardens and landscaping is fertalized with compost materials derived and processed onsite. Since August of 2010, 30,000 pounds of food and paper waste from the convention center has been reduced to 10,000 pounds of useable compost material.
