Outreach & Marketing
BTA's core mission is to support and strengthen the Baltimore tourism & hospitality industry, by professionally representing and marketing all that our Charm City has to offer! As tourism ambassadors, we take great pride in sharing what is unique about Baltimore and our members.
BTA represents its membership at a variety of trade shows covering the student, senior and adult markets. Members can have their information distributed to group leaders and tour operators at these shows by participating in our FREE collateral and promotional stuffing events in 2022. The BTA representative attending the show offers itinerary suggestions, takes part in sales calls and hands out information on your behalf, which is especially beneficial to members who do not have the budget to attend these trade shows.
Baltimore's tourism community is one of the region's most important drivers of economic growth, providing thousands of jobs and generating millions of dollars in revenue every year. BTA advocates for the interests of our industry at the local, state, and federal levels, supporting legislation and policies that strengthen tourism and hospitality.
Baltimore is filled with so many things to see, do and experience! From world class attractions and hotels to local galleries and museums; historic and educational tours to sporting events and delicious food. Tourism touches every corner of the city and supports thousands of jobs.
We are the Baltimore Tourism Association (BTA), a coalition of industry professionals and partners. We pride ourselves on being ambassadors of Charm City. Our mission is to strengthen and support our members through educational programming, regional outreach, targeted promotions, civic advocacy, and networking opportunities intended to foster productive and beneficial relationships.
