DLA Piper is hosting us in their amazing space in Mt. Washington that can handle 200 or more people, with plentiful parking, and convenient access for those that live outside the city. What more can you ask?

The DLA Piper building is in the Mt. Washington Conference Center campus (up the hill), and it is a totally amazing building. Check it out:

To get to the venue, use the Smith street entrance (and not the entrance that weaves its way through the Mt. Washington Conference Center). See below map for detail.

Parking is plentiful and there's a lot right next to the building, with plenty of room for all attendees. And it's free. What can be better? One favor, tho -- leave the few visitor spots that are right in front of the building available for the use of the offices. They have some elderly clients who aren't able to walk up the walkway to the building. The lot is really big and very close so you shouldn't need those spots anyways.

Public Transportation

The Mt. Washington campus is located very conveniently near the Light Rail stop, which is literally just down the hill from the venue. Get off at the Mt. Washington Light Rail station, and then climb the steps to the Octagon Building at Mt. Washington and from there you can get to the DLA Piper building. It's a 15-20 minute walk at most.

There are also shuttles from the JHU Homewood and JHMI campuses right to the Mt. Washington Conference center, including one that leaves at 7:40AM from Homewood getting in by 8AM, and leaving at 9:35AM to return to Homewood. Very convenient.

    Another great Baltimore TechBreakfast! As I mentioned we are hosting an Insurance BizWorkshop on July 26th at our office in Baltimore from 9-12. Cover Your @$$ for Pennies on the Dollar!! This is a great opportunity to get an overview of the types of insurance you may need, what they cover, what they cost, and why you need them and you will learn about Cyber Liability and Data Breach – this is a BIG deal for most of you. Depending on your business you may even be able to leave with a quote indication in hand. This is a great, informal, and fun way to learn about how to protect yourself and make your business more attractive to investors! Sign up at Please also visit our website at for instant quotes, insurance glossary, data breach calculator, sample documents and more. As always, please reach out if we can be of any assistance.

  • Bob F.

    Ron, is it possible to send out a schedule of what time you expect each speaker to speak so those of us who are time constrained can prioritize?

    May 30, 2013

    • Ron S.

      Hi Bob! We used to do that, but we found that we had last minute changes to the schedule and sometimes folks ran long or early and it became impossible to predict the actual start and stop time of each speaker. I can guarantee we'll start at 8:15 and presentations should wrap up no later than 9:35
