Great news!!!...Glad to be moving people to conventions downtown rather then in the north meadows...itd be great if we could move one of the cars shows to the convention center!!

The CMTA (Connecticut Marine Trade Association) Hartford Boat Show moved from the HCC to the CCC. I heard the CCC is nice for loading.

Advertised todays Hartford Courant page 3 of the sports section, Auto Show at the convention center, Nov 16-19.

Great news...Providence, NYC and Boston have downtown auto shows, its seems only normal that if Hartford has a downtown facility it should have a downtown car show

Check out this article about a group that recently held their convention at the Connecticut Convention Center. They seemed to enjoy their time in CT.

While here, the women are trying to fit in work, play and charitable giving. They went to the play "Fences" at The Hartford Stage Wednesday and attended a cast reception afterward. There was a trip - actually two, but who's counting? - to Mohegan Sun. A step show, a comedian, trips to the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art and shopping excursions were planned.

"It's been wonderful," said Evelyn Sample-Oats of Philadelphia, the sorority's North Atlantic regional director. "People are nice. The city is friendly and warm and the convention center is beautiful. It's a smaller city, but smaller sometimes is good." Next year's regional will be in Philly; last year's was in Atlantic City.

We can hope that they will spread the word when they get home that Hartford is on the rise.

Now in its third year, the Connecticut Convention Center is showing that it has appeal to an array of niche audiences. That bodes well for a Hartford region looking to establish itself as a destination point.

To date, the region has been visited by women's faith groups, Muslims, Mary Kay saleswomen, bass fishermen, math and science teachers and nurses, among others.

This year, visitors will include more religious groups, aircraft owners and tree-care

I also learned from the article that the fourth largest black-owned private equity firm in the country is in Hartford. And the president of the largest black owned bank is from CT as well.

I read this article and I thought that it was great that these convention goers were interacting with the city and state. They went to shows downtown, museums, ate in the city, went to the casinos, etc. They didnt drive into the convention center, walk over to the hotel and then leave the city in three days

That's how AKA's are. Good people. My mother and both of my grandmothers were in that sorority.

What Waterford is doing is a very common practice among entertainment venues is very common, but still dumb, especially in the case of a convention center. People don't generally spend all day at a sporting event, but if you are manning a booth at a trade show, it makes sense to run out for lunch and bring it back with you so you can get back to work.....
