Connecticut Conference On Tourism Is Thursday

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is the conference's keynote speaker


Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is set to be the keynote speaker at Thursday's Connecticut Conference on Tourism, which will be held at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford.

According to the press release, the day-long conference will cover Malloy's vision for Connecticut tourism and will cover insight on how to improve business using travel trends, international travelers, group travel and conferences, partnerships, online marketing strategies and hospitality.

“This marks a dramatic turning point for the tourism industry. The Governor and our legislature understand the importance of tourism as a significant revenue generating vehicle for Connecticut," Randy Fiveash, state tourism director, said in the press release.

Every state dollar put into tourism advertising yields a $9 return, the release says, citing national research.

Registration for the event begins at 8 a.m. on Thursday, May 17 and tickets can be purchased online.

Full conference schedule is posted here.

If Malloy was really conserned about tourism he would finish Route 11. After all if Mystic is the tourism destination area for CT how do you get there ..... Your plane lands in Hartford and you drive yep right down route 85.Or 95 if you are driving in from the southern US. OH yes and the most dangerous stretch of highway. HUMMMM 95 between old saybrook and groton. How much money has been sunk into that and it has not even been improved just redone. Malloy put our money back into our state not into everyone elses pockets
