IN CONNECTICUT, IT’S MORE THAN A MEETING
Vibrant venues. Convenient location. And so many things to see and do while you are here. Go beyond the conference room or sports arena in Connecticut — an ideal meeting destination for teams of all kinds.
Plan your next meeting in a destination easily accessible to your team — and packed with unique experiences. From a state-of-the-art riverfront convention center to out-of-the-box venues like a carousel museum, classic schooners, adult summer camps, casinos, castles, and more, Connecticut offers the perfect meeting venue for any group. Conveniently positioned between New York City and Boston, over 23.5 million people live within a 2½-hour drive of Hartford, Connecticut’s centrally located state capital – a major selling point for meeting planners and sports promoters alike. It’s simple to get here via rail, bus, car, or air — by flying into Connecticut airports like the ever-growing Tweed-New Haven Airport and nationally recognized Bradley International Airport, featuring a brand-new and convenient Ground Transportation Center, making it easier to get to your destination.
More than just meetings, Connecticut is a destination for successful sports. The state accommodates almost any sport in any season – just bring your team and Connecticut will bring the venue. Plus, the state’s close proximity to both Metro New York and New England means more athletes for your roster and more spectators for your stands.
In Connecticut, we know your meeting goes beyond the conference table. When the discussion wraps up, head out and enjoy a state that’s compact enough to fit many diverse “bleisure” experiences into a single day. Whether it’s scheduled team-building activities or recreational escapes, your group can enjoy everything from renowned art museums to world-class casinos, live music venues to outdoor adventure, iconic aquariums to vibrant shopping and dining destinations, and even take self-guided tours of the wine country and the Pizza Trail. In fact, many of these popular tourism attractions double as locations for unique and memorable meetings and social events!
