“Through the efforts of the staff at the Connecticut Convention & Sports Bureau (CTMEETINGS), our annual youth volleyball tournament in Hartford continues to grow and thrive. The 2024 NIKE New England Winterfest Volleyball Tournament brought a total of over 28,000 visitors to the state’s capital city over three consecutive weekends, including the young athletes, their families, friends, officials, college coaches, fans and spectators. The Bureau secures a city official to come and take the official opening serve, and staff highlights our event to all of the media outlets in the region and beyond, thus making us a partner in growing the Greater Hartford region and its economy.

"The Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa’s largest effort of the year with the Connecticut Convention & Sports Bureau (CTMEETINGS) is the annual three-day American Crossword Puzzle Tournament (ACPT) where we are the competition’s venue and the headquarters hotel. Hosted by its creator Will Shortz, The New York Times’ crossword puzzle editor, the 2024 ACPT drew 750 contestants from as far away as from Australia, Canada, France, Germany and England, and virtual spectators from all over the world. Our hotel’s overnight rooms completely sold out weeks before the event, with the ballroom and meeting rooms full. CTMEETINGS’ staff assistance us helps to ensure high attendance, and solid media coverage – both before and during the event."
