The Connecticut Convention Center is the Northeast’s ideal location for trade shows, conventions, business meetings or any occasion demanding a dramatic riverfront setting.

Limitlessly functional and endlessly customizable, the 540,000 square foot Connecticut Convention Center is the largest convention facility between New York and Boston. The Center combines ample meeting space – including 140,000 square feet of exhibition space, a 40,000 square foot ballroom and 25,000 square feet of flexible meeting space – with visually stunning touches, creating the ideal backdrop for any event.

This convention center is spacious and exceptionally clean! The staff was amazingly kind during the entire duration of the conference. The air conditioning works very well so I advise you bring a sweater/wrap/light jacket.

We went to a Stitches United convention here. I couldn't get over how clean they kept it with all of the people that were attending! The staff were all so accommodating and nice. It was a terrific experience.

My wife was attending a knitting convention. The parking was easy, covered and next door. The center has clean rest rooms, elevators, and moving stairs. A clean building and inviting to go to.

I was an exhibitor for the Handmade Bike Show and the facility is really clean, modern and beautiful. I didn't have a car and so I have no idea about parking situation, but I loved how clean the convention center was.

I visited from NH for a Comic Convention, the staff of the center were pleasant and kept the center extremely clean. Large, bright center with commuter friendly parking there and surrounding the center. Bars, restaurants and a movie theater within a block, great spot.

The Hartford Hilton is about 3 - 4 city blocks away from the Convention Center. Not a bad walk, even at night. Not sure when the shuttle buses run, but there are taxis you can take in bad or cold weather.
