Baltimore Convention Center


The Baltimore Convention Center is the premier location in the mid-Atlantic region for organizations to host conventions, meetings, banquets, tradeshows, and other events. With 300,000 square feet of contiguous exhibition space, approximately 85,000 square feet of meeting space (50 meeting rooms) and a multifunctional 36,672-square-foot ballroom, the Center has the capacity and flexibility for hosting a variety of professional events.

We are proud to be bringing the very first MIST tournament to a venue of this capacity and prestige. This Nationals will mark a new era for MIST, and we hope to continue raising the bar and bringing the best possible experience for our attendees.
