Travel Information

About Baltimore

Today’s Baltimore is a vibrant city that honors the past while keeping a keen eye on the future. There are several “must see” activities to include in your trip including the largest public collection of Matisse in the world, the inner harbor, the National Aquarium. You could even enjoy a Baltimore Orioles baseball game the week of the Symposium! For more information about these attractions, and everything Baltimore has to offer, see the Visit Baltimore website. Baltimore is also a short train ride from Washington D.C. and all of the attractions of the United States capital.

Getting There

Located just nine miles south of Baltimore—and 32 miles from Washington, D.C.—Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) offers travelers more than 500 flights daily on 36 airlines to and from cities across the U.S., as well as Toronto, Reykjavik and Punta Cana, among its 13 international destinations.

If traveling by car, there are plenty of parking options in Baltimore. Keep an eye out for street parking but be sure to double check nearby signs for restrictions or costs. Reserve a spot in a garage or lot ahead of time (and possibly save some money) with online services like Parking Panda and Spot Hero


Unauthorized Housing Warning

Unfortunately, it is now common practice for unauthorized companies to claim to be official housing providers for trade shows and other large events, including ASNT conferences. Usually called “room poachers,” these companies target exhibitors and attendees with aggressive emails or phone calls claiming to offer supposed discounts on hotel rooms or incorrectly stating that room blocks are nearing or at capacity. The room poachers often don’t deliver on promises to customers. When customers arrive, reservations are non-existent or the hotels are not conveniently located. Sometimes the rooms have been cancelled and hefty cancellation fees have been placed on the customer’s credit card.

Please be vigilant if contacted by any company or service that implies or claims to be an official housing provider for ASNT. ASNT IS NOT affiliated with third-party travel agents, wholesalers or other outside agencies claiming to offer hotel reservations. The only way to book your rooms for ASNT is to use the channels provided on our website. If you are contacted by one of these pirate companies, please notify ASNT staff immediately. Below are company names that have been provided to us by our members, attendees and exhibitors. This list is not complete and new company names will be added as we are made aware of them.

  • Corporate Booking Services – CBS International
  • Global EXPO LIST
  • Global Housing Services, Corp.
