Cities across the U.S. are increasingly competing to host meetings, conventions, trade shows, and events. The location is often just as important as the convention facility itself. The capital of Connecticut and the state's fourth largest city, Hartford is one of the country's desired event destinations. The City is home to the Connecticut Convention Center, the largest full-service convention facility between New York City and Boston.
Located in the exciting downtown riverfront district known as Adriaen's Landing, the Connecticut Convention Center is only 15 miles from the Bradley International Airport and just minutes from Hartford’s Union Station. It's owned by the State of Connecticut, operated by the Capital Region Development Authority, and professionally managed by Waterford Venue Services.
Featuring many flexible spaces, the Connecticut Convention Center holds nearly 200 events each year, ranging in size from ten to ten-thousand people. Some of its most notable events include the Governor’s Inaugural Ball, Airplane Owners and Pilots Association, Society of Manufacturing Engineers, ConnectiCon, Boxing, Saint Francis Miracles, Connecticut Auto Show, and LEGO KidsFest, as well as numerous corporate and social functions.
The Today in America segment educates viewers on the Connecticut Convention Center and explores all of the facility's unique attributes that make it a great place to hold an event. The segment was filmed on location at the Connecticut Convention Center and the nearby entertainment district, Adriaen's Landing.
