Mac Campbell, CVP

Executive Director

Mac Campbell, Certified Venue Professional (CVP) is the Executive Director at the 1.2 million sq ft Baltimore Convention Center.

Mac has spent his entire career in public venue operations, specifically in convention centers and performing art centers. He is responsible for the overall strategic planning, promotion, and operations for a city agency that welcomes around a half million attendees a year from all around the world.

Throughout his time with the organization, Mac worked his way up the leadership ladder. He joined the BCC in 2012 as the Director of Operations and was promoted to Deputy Director in 2017. After a short hiatus from City employment in 2021, Mac was brought back to head the organization when his mentor and industry icon, Peggy Daidakis retired in 2022.

Mac’s vision for the Convention Center surrounds bringing authentic Baltimore closer to the patron visiting and encouraging them to explore all that a historic city like Baltimore has to offer. In the same lens, community stewardship plays a pivotal role in the BCC’s operation with years long partnerships with organizations who help reduce waste, feed those in need, and promote the small business owner who exhibits the best of what Baltimore is.

When not employed at the Baltimore Convention Center, Mac spent two separate stints and over eight years of service at Strathmore Hall Foundation Inc. in North Bethesda, Maryland, most recently as their Vice President of Operations overseeing the operation of a world-class concert hall, historic mansion and 16-acres of beautiful grounds.

Mac received his bachelor’s degree from Elon University with a major in Corporate Communications and General Music and a minor in Jazz Studies. He is heavily involved in volunteering with the International Association of Venue Managers, having served on many committees and their executive board.
