Connecticut Convention Center
The largest convention facility between New York and Boston, the Connecticut Convention Center is in the heart of downtown Hartford overlooking the Connecticut River and will be the host venue for this year's show. Hartford is Connecticut’s capital and one of New England’s oldest cities. Home to the nation’s oldest public art museum, the Wadsworth Athenaeum, the oldest public park, Bushnell Park, and the oldest continually published newspaper, The Hartford Courant, Hartford is a destination that has seamlessly woven a rich historical past into a vibrant modern city.
