March 25, 2021- HALIFAX, NS—As part of the ongoing success of their business relationship, b4 announces the deployment of TransForm at the Maritime Conference Center in Linthicum Heights, Maryland, just outside of Baltimore.

The conference center, minutes from the Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI), features 232 guestrooms and over 100,000 square feet of flexible meeting space. Their dedicated staff and value-added packages make it the perfect venue for meeting planners to custom design meetings with ease.

“We partnered with b4 in 2014 to help us streamline hotel operations and better service guests by implementing a series of products from their portfolio,” said John Krikorian, Director of Operations at the Maritime Conference Center. “With TransForm, we now have a contactless, PCI compliant and straightforward method for our customers to settle bills or post deposits towards a guest folio or group master.”

Initially deployed in 2018, TransForm has also helped the Maritime Conference Center achieve success in managing payment disputes. Moreover, with the push for card-not-present credit card transactions in the wake of COVID-19, TransForm has helped to give groups and meeting planners renewed booking confidence by ensuring that in-person contact is minimized.


The Maritime Conference Center is located on the beautiful 80-acre campus of the Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies, a nonprofit vocational maritime training and simulation center. The Maritime Conference Center is conveniently located within minutes from the Baltimore Washington International Airport. With Baltimore, Annapolis, and Washington, D.C. all nearby, the Maritime Conference Center is located in a central hub for all kinds of gatherings. The Maritime Conference Center offers 232 guestrooms and 100,000 square feet of event space, including a tiered auditorium with seating for 350 and a dining room with seating for 500. Other amenities include a fitness room, recreation room, indoor swimming pool, the Deck Club Lounge, and lots of outdoor space. For more information visit:
