Convention Center Description

The Connecticut Convention Center is the Northeast's newest, most ideal location for trade shows, conventions and business meetings - or any occasion that demands a dramatic riverfront setting. Just steps from Downtown Hartford, the Connecticut Convention Center overlooks the beautiful Connecticut River at Adriaen’s Landing, the city’s exciting new riverfront district.

With over 140,000 square feet of exhibition space, a 40,000 square foot ballroom and 25,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, the Connecticut Convention Center is the largest convention facility between New York and Boston. The venue also features exceptional demographics and highway access at the crossroads of New England, where Interstates 84 and 91 meet. With a prominent visual presence on Hartford’s historic skyline, the Center’s 110-foot glass atrium dramatically rises 10 stories above a grand public plaza and a tree-lined riverfront esplanade.

Unique Differentiators

A pristine new venue, the Connecticut Convention Center has been constructed to spare no detail in making every function accommodating. From state-of-the-art rigging, wiring and WiFi to flexible spaces, abundant pre-function areas and on-site sheltered parking, the facility has taken every facet of hosting an event into consideration. That includes a AAA Four Diamond lodging experience at the 22-story, 409-room Marriott Hartford Downtown Hotel, conveniently attached to the convention center.
