Connecticut Convention & Sports Bureau: Connecticut’s COVID-19 Resources

As Connecticut's meetings and hospitality industries slowly begin to reopen, the Connecticut Convention & Sports Bureau - Connecticut's Statewide Destination Marketing Organization - will show you the way to state-of-the-art meeting facilities and sports venues, along with first-rate accommodations and unparalleled service at competitive prices.
Our state's impressive inventory of venues can accommodate groups of all types and sizes - all complying with the newest protocols for safety and cleanliness, and easily accessible via the Northeast's interstates, air, bus and rail lines.

Our Bureau is working together with State departments and local municipalities, as well as the Connecticut Lodging Association, the Connecticut Restaurant Association, the Connecticut Event Industry Coalition, Hotels, Venues, Restaurants and other industry partners in preparation for welcoming back groups, events, meetings and conventions of all types.

  • Many of our hotel partners are open or partially open for overnight guests and small groups.
  • Both of Connecticut’s entertainment casinos and their conference centers are open. As sovereign nations, they are accepting larger groups, and offer private fire, police and medical services.
  • Restaurants and outdoor dining are popular, and many of outdoor attractions, assets and activities are open in compliance with social distancing guidelines.

Connecticut's COVID-19 Guidelines Overview

COVID-19 CT Prevention Badge

In Connecticut, all sectors that are open are required to Self-Certify that they are following strict safety guidelines to keep their employees and customers safe. Once completed, they must post their Self-Certify Badge (see badge above) inside their business. All must also follow their respective sector rules/guidelines which are highlighted above.

The State of Connecticut and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requirements and guidance:

Many of our hotel, venue and restaurant partners have updated “COVID-19  services” available on their listings on this website. If their information is not specifically posted, please contact our staff and we will assist you.

Contact our local experts for more specific information and to find a venue that works for you and your program.
