I've attended the Department of Maryland American Legion Convention for the last 3 years and this places blows me away every time. The meeting rooms are large, there is a nice view of the bay from the second floor, there is plenty of parking on site.

I refereed at a volleyball tournament held in this venue. I was impressed by the setup, the cleanliness and the staff at the convention center. If you go to the convention center, don't miss the view from the benches in the back which overlook the water.

Great staff and facility. Very accommodating. In the 20 years that we have used the Convention Center, they have continued to upgrade and expand. Have an idea? They can help make it happen.
