THE CONNECTICUT TOURISM COALITION
Brings together the strength, numbers and influence of the state’s tourism proponents to create one powerful, inclusive and coordinated tourism advocate.
We are giving those who care about our Industry’s future a stronger voice as we work for critical change, including more reliable funding, pro-business policy and stronger public support.
Mission & Vision
The Connecticut Tourism Coalition is comprised of various association and industry–supporting organizations whose main goal is to affect change in the Connecticut tourism industry by addressing key legislative, regulatory and budgeting issues through public education.
