Meetings mean business and boost our Connecticut Economy.
CTMEETINGS utilizes the Destination International’s Event Impact Calculator (EIC), established as an industry standard and developed by Tourism Economics, an Oxford Economics Company, to measure the direct impact of events on businesses, employment, income and taxes.
The role of the Connecticut Convention & Sports Bureau (CTMEETINGS) is to provide qualified leads to our hotels and venues. Our reporting measure of success is the number of definite room nights booked and how each event impacts the Connecticut economy.
