The 2014 Auto Glass Week™ set to be held October 7-9 at the Baltimore Convention Center and Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel, has something for everyone! While the event will offer educational seminars, an exhibition hall and the attendee-favorite, annual competitions, the city delivers an experience like no other.
Here are just a few places you can visit during your stay in Baltimore:

A 20,000 square-foot, “Baltimore Marketplace” featuring authentic Charm City food outlets, three premier restaurants, and several bars and lounges will round out the food and beverage offerings.
