Unique Experiences
Maritime Conference Center (MCC) is located on the beautiful 80 acre campus of the Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies (MITAGS), a nonprofit vocational maritime training and simulation center. Founded in 1967 by the International Organization of Masters, Mates and Pilots (IOMMP) and its contracted shipping companies, it moved to the Linthicum Heights Campus in 1972. The non-profit trust is dedicated to enhancing mariner professionalism through the development of internationally recognized programs in leadership, education, training and safety.

Your guests will walk through hallways adorned with 7-foot models of seafaring vessels and centuries of Merchant Marine history.  They'll enjoy our well equiped meeting and breakout spaces, morning and afternoon centralized breaks, meals in our Chesapeake Dining Room, and utilizing our swimming pool, fitness center, recreation room and lounge during their downtime.  

Ask about adding a reception in our Memorabilia Room adorned with interesting maritime history, or adding a simulator tour.  MITAGS is home to two full-mission simulators and a tugboat simulator. Picture the bridge of a tanker ship surrounded by an IMAX Theater screen that’s 60 feet high and can simulate any port in the world, and any weather condition or obstacle. In addition to this very impressive technology, we also have 8 all-weather navigation bridges and 12 desktop simulators.  Utilize our beautiful grounds to create fun events like a luau, cookout, teambuilding or exercise activity.

Testimonials

Testimonials



"I can only imagine what a difficult time it has been for the Maritime Conference Center and its staff, having to navigate through a global pandemic while keeping your facility operational and adhering to very strict safety protocols.

On behalf of the entire Executive Council members and staff, I would like to extend my sincere thanks and congratulations to you and your team for hosting our meeting last week. Not only were we able to gather together in person for the first time in over 18 months, we all felt a sense of safety, comfort and belonging knowing that we were back at the Maritime Conference Center.

You and your team, especially Stacey Hahn, our Audio-visual technician, Rick, and the team in the kitchen and dining areas worked tirelessly with my staff to implement many new protocols including changing room set ups to accommodate physical distancing, and moving the Crab Feast indoors, which turned out to be a huge success!

For our first face-to-face meeting since March last year, it seemed appropriate for us to hold it at the Maritime Conference Center, a venue which has always welcomed The Episcopal Church with warmth and hospitality.

With sincere thanks,"



"All, I just wanted to say how well MCC performed for this very first large scale conference during the height of COVID. We got lots of very positive feedback about the food, the constant replenishment of coffee, snacks in the break area, the friendliness of staff and the general overall feeling of being taken care of by the MCC. The conference ran even more smoothly than past pre-covid conferences. I believe that Crystal's herculean focus on pre-set up details and our needs was a decisive factor in our very positive experience. So thank you all for your efforts, flexibility and attention to our needs. It was great."




"We have been so appreciative of MCC's overall approach in addressing the two event cancellations our organization had due to the pandemic. MCC could have held us to contract obligations no one anticipated arising from a global crisis, but instead compromised with us in finding solutions that worked for everyone given the very difficult decisions we all were faced with at that time. MCC was the first venue of a number of venues we work with that went right to the task of researching and devising sensible protocols to provide for safe gathering environments once that was possible again. This was all done in the spirit of preserving relationships for future collaboration. MCC will be the first venue we go to once we are able to begin scheduling in-person programming again."

“I've been organizing a large, single-day conference at the Maritime Conference Center for about 14 years. The Center's staff have always provided outstanding services to our conference planning committee and our attendees. They are always extremely accommodating and willing to accept large and small changes to the conference plans - sometimes at the last minute. Our attendees have always appreciated the ample free parking (with complimentary shuttle service), delicious snacks and lunch, ample space for breakout sessions and perhaps most importantly, the reasonable conference price. The Center's wide corridors are ideal for our poster presentations and exhibit tables and the new-and-improved simulcast was an added bonus during our 2019 event. Planning a conference at the Maritime Conference Center is highly recommended."


"The International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers has been utilizing Maritime Conference Center’s meeting space and accommodations for over 5 years. Their excellent staff, all-inclusive package pricing and easy planning process makes continuing to work with MCC for our training needs an easy decision. They also have a great location, just 4 miles from BWI Airport, and provide complimentary shuttle service. Our attendees love the delicious food, both in the dining room and on the breaks. As the Administrator for the Insulation Industry International Apprentice and Training Fund, I also appreciate that the workers at this facility are all union-represented."
