Main Streets Conference 2012

Main Street is Being REvisited

In April 2012, Baltimore will become the first city to host the National Main Streets Conference twice. We are please to partner with our co-host Baltimore Main Streets on educational opportunities and events that will inspire and excite you. Join us to rediscover Main Street AND Baltimore. Whether you're in an urban business district, small rural downtown, or someplace in between, we'll have networking and educational sessions just for you. You'll leave Baltimore with ideas and solutions you can implement immediately after exploring new tools, strategies, and best practices so your district can continue to survive and thrive in these difficult economic times.
