Bringing People Together in both Business & Civic Life

Connecticut Convention Center

Hartford, Connecticut


Built as part of a comprehensive effort to bring resources and renewed energy to the capital of Connecticut, the Connecticut Convention Center is a state-of-the-art venue offering the space and infrastructure components that major conventions, conferences and trade shows look for when they select a location.


With over 145,000 square feet of exhibition space, it is the largest convention facility between New York and Boston.

In addition to its expansive exhibition hall, the Connecticut Convention Center offers a 40,000-sf ballroom and 25,000 square feet of meeting space. The facility is served by over 6,500 local hotel rooms, including the new adjacent Hartford Marriott Downtown.


The Convention Center was built on the easternmost edge of downtown Hartford's Adriaen’s Landing, a 33-acre development that incorporates major meeting, lodging, entertainment, retail, cultural and residential elements designed to make the site a local, regional and national destination to live, work and play.


BVH commissioned the mechanical and electrical systems for the 540,000-SF Connecticut Convention Center, including the central steam and chilled water plant and distribution.
