Whether you want to hold your meeting in a unique space or offer guests a diverse range of attractions within a short drive of one another, you’ll find choosing Connecticut as your destination is like choosing three or four states with just one decision.

Forget the usual beige walls and boring conference rooms. Here, you can hold your meeting aboard a classic schooner while cruising past a lighthouse at sunset. Circle back on the day’s discussion points while taking a spin on one of the oldest carousels in the nation. Sample some of New England’s most acclaimed adult beverages on Connecticut’s Beer and Wine Trails. Go a little wild in a zoo or aquarium. Get cultured in one of the country’s most renowned art museums. Or move from meeting tables to gaming tables in one of the world’s largest casinos.

And going far beyond your attendees’ expectations doesn’t mean traveling far in Connecticut. Here, you can easily wake up waterside, enjoy lunch at a top-rated restaurant in the city, and end the day with a farm-to-table dinner in the countryside. When it comes to options for your guests, this is one concentrated state — thanks to its compact size, you’ll find so many different types of activities and attractions in close proximity to one another. In Connecticut, “either/or” becomes “and.”

What’s the best way to get to any part of Connecticut? Take your pick. Over 23.5 million people live within a 2½ hour drive to Hartford, the centrally located state capital. Connecticut is home to three major interstate highways. And service is provided by five airports, including Bradley International Airport (BDL), recognized as one of the country’s top airports by Condé Nast Traveler, USA Today and others. So, wherever your meeting lands in Connecticut, you’re never far from a world of interesting and unexpected experiences and attractions.
