Baltimore means business, according to, an active advocate for the Charm City.

A national leader in key business sectors like health care, life sciences, tourism, finance and real estate, Baltimore is home to world class higher educational institutions such as Johns Hopkins University. In fact, after a decline in manufacturing, Baltimore shifted to a service-oriented economy, and Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Hospital are now the city’s largest employers.

Located along the tidal portion of the Patapsco River, an arm of the Chesapeake Bay, Baltimore is the largest U.S. seaport in the Mid-Atlantic, and the largest independent city in the United States.

The Baltimore Metropolitan Area has approximately 2.7 million residents; the 21st largest in the country. Baltimore is also the largest city in the surrounding associated combined statistical area of approximately 8.4 million residents.

Founded in 1729, Baltimore was named after Lord Baltimore, a member of the Irish House of Lords and the founding proprietor of the Maryland Colony. Baltimore’s Inner Harbor was once the second leading port of entry for immigrants to the United States and a major manufacturing center.

Today, a great spot for a business meeting is Harborplace, the riverfront shopping and dining mecca set within walking distance of a number of diverse neighborhoods that are renown examples of urban revitalization. The National Aquarium in Baltimore is also a tourist magnet that helped rank Baltimore the 3rd best place to shop in 2010 by Forbes magazine.
