Connecticut launches www.ctmeetings.com to assist meeting planners

HARTFORD, CT, September 2003 - Connecticut, New England's newest meeting place, has launched www.ctmeetings.com to assist meeting and conference planners interested in planning their next successful meeting in Connecticut. The new website allows planners to easily log on and register online for Request for Proposals (RFP), connect with the state's various conventions and visitors bureaus to learn about each area's attractions, quickly search for facilities around the state through virtual site inspections and utilize the My Meeting Plan feature, which is an interactive tool that creates customized meeting plans. In addition, planners can sign up on the website to receive an e-newsletter "Meet CT" for up-to-date information on the opening of new venues around the state and other affordable, efficient and fun meeting ideas.

The launch of the new website is part of Connecticut's effort to promote the state as an exciting and viable New England destination for meetings of all sizes. With an array of venues ranging from "small to extra-large," planners can choose from quaint 1800 country inns to sophisticated urban hotels to the new 550,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art Connecticut Convention Center at Adriaen's Landing, scheduled to open in 2005.

In addition to unique and interesting venues, Connecticut offers countless free-time ideas for planners including exceptional dining, fabulous entertainment and exciting attractions, which are not only unique to Connecticut, but also a more affordable alternative to the traditional nearby meeting destinations of New York City and Boston.
