Hotel Vendor Day on September 28
On Thursday, September 28, 2017 the Johns Hopkins Travel Office is pleased to host a Hotel Vendor Day to showcase many Johns Hopkins preferred hotels in Baltimore City and the immediate vicinity. Representatives from a variety of hotels will be on hand from 10:00am until 2:00pm in the Glass Pavilion (Levering Hall) on the Homewood Campus. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet with hotel partners with which you may have done business with in the past, as well as learn about new properties opening in the city. We encourage you to come by, bring your business cards, and share your guest, groups, and meetings needs with these vendors - all of which offer preferred rates for Johns Hopkins.
Participating properties can be found here (as of 9/20).
