FAQs

Why should I come to Conference?
You might get 1,000 different answers from our 1,000 delegates! But we think the top three reasons to come are: 1) you want to meet, network, and learn from your peers; 2) you want to do your job better; 3) to know you’re not alone – there are other people out there with the same goals, aspirations, and questions that you have.

Where should I stay?
The League has established a block of rooms at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront.  More information can be found on the Hotel and Transportation page.

How do I get the most out of Conference?
We jam pack three days full of learning, networking, and music. We recommend taking a look at the Conference schedule so you’re prepared for what is planned. Reading through the Electives is also helpful, so you’re not choosing what session to go to on the fly. Other than that? Introduce yourself to everyone – meeting other delegates is one of the best parts of Conference.

How do I access WiFi in the Hotel?
Complimentary wireless internet access will be available in the exhibit area and all public spaces within the hotel. The WiFi network and password will be available at registration, and on this website once it becomes available..

What are Electives, and should I pick which ones to attend now?
There are three blocks of Electives and you are welcome to choose any one during each time slot. It is really helpful for us if you select these sessions now so we can organize appropriate sized rooms for each. Find the full list of Electives here.

What are Pre-Conference Seminars?
We know that lots of people want to make their trip to Baltimore as packed with learning as possible, so for an additional fee you can arrive early and choose from one of several intensive, hands-on, learning sessions. More information about these can be found here.

Are any group registration rates available?
Groups of five or more are welcome to contact Member Relations for special group rates. Please contact Member Relations at 646 822 4010 or member@americanorchestras.org for details.

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
The Baltimore Marriott Waterfront is ADA accessible, including exhibit halls, meeting rooms, and ballrooms. Passenger elevators are located at street and all meeting levels. If you require additional assistance at conference, please email member@americanorchestras.org.

Is there anything else I need to know?
Just come to the Registration Area as soon as you arrive – we’ll have all your materials ready.

What if I have more questions?
We love questions – so bring it on! If you have questions before Conference begins, email us at member@americanorchestras.org and we’ll get right back to you. During Conference you’ll find the League staff full of answers and waiting for you at the Registration Area.

There is so much we could tell you, but you get the idea. Have fun in Baltimore– we are looking forward to meeting you!
