Connecticut Tourism Marketing Updates & 2014 Cooperative Opportunities
More than 250 representatives from tourism, culture and media attended five marketing outreach meetings held last week throughout the state. Attendees contributed a wealth of information and perspective towards the State’s Strategic Marketing Plan for 2014-2015 and the Connecticut still revolutionary brand to promote tourism, attract business and recruit talent to the state.
Thank you to all who took time out of their busy schedules to participate. We’re sorry that we missed you if you were not able to attend. A copy of the PowerPoint presentation, cooperative marketing opportunities overview and all handouts are now posted online at ct.gov/cct.
