Thursday, June 6 — Dining on the DC Wharf

Thursday evening, June 6, at the Marketing Dynamics Conference has been designated as the time to visit Washington D.C.'s newest and trendiest area — the waterfront, known as the DC Wharf. This area has been undergoing a revitalization for a number of years and offers dozens of new restaurants, shops and things to do.

A University of Maryland bus will transport our guests from the College Park hotels to the DC Wharf leaving at approximately 5:15–5:30 p.m. It is about a 30-minute trip (about 8-10 miles). Participants will be on their own for the evening to walk around, dine, or shop. This link to the DC Wharf will describe the types of restaurants and cuisine available. If you want to dine as a group at a particular restaurant, it is suggested you make your plans and a reservation ahead of time.

Reboarding the busses to return to the hotels in College Park will start at 9:30 p.m. at the drop-off point. If you’re not done having fun in DC, you are welcome to take an Uber back to your hotel at your convenience. Information with your hotel’s address will be provided for that purpose.

Friday, June 7 — Maryland Crab Feast

Our guests will enjoy one of Maryland’s best-known traditions — eating Maryland crabs! On hand will be bushels of Maryland blue crabs and snow crabs (easier to eat), along with some experts to show you how to crack, open, and enjoy these delicious Maryland favorites! Weather permitting, we’ll eat outdoors, so be sure to “dress down” for this fun event!
