Annual Meeting housing is open....
make your reservations today!

BPS has secured a housing block across several hotels in Baltimore. As a meeting attendee, it is important for you to book your hotel room in the BPS housing block to guarantee the best accommodations and most competitive nightly rates, and guarantees in the event of overbooking or construction. 
Filling a room block is important to the Society because it provides a “report card” on the Society’s meeting sites.  By establishing a history of always filling a room
block, the Society is able to secure both competitive room rates and larger blocks in subsequent years.  To make your reservation go to:  The Baltimore Hilton, the official Headquarters Hotel, is just connected to the Baltimore Convention Center.
