“We are thrilled about this holiday weekend, as Connecticut hosts multiple major sports events for the first time in over a year,” explains Robert Murdock, President of the Connecticut Convention & Sports Bureau (CTCSB). “These tournaments will bring athletes, officials, families and fans, and are projected to generate a combined total of $7 Million in revenue for local hotels, restaurants and attractions, with the NCAA DI, DII, DIII Men’s Lacrosse National Championships in East Hartford alone projected to bring in $4.36 Million. In total, these six events will support more than 2,400-tourism-related jobs in Connecticut, and will produce over $261,000 in Connecticut sales tax,” says Murdock. “Our Bureau has been working with these promoters to help bring them to our state, and we look forward to a big summer season with many more.”

The Connecticut Convention & Sports Bureau (CTCSB) is the state’s official meetings and sports event sales and marketing organization. Working in partnership with businesses, institutions, nonprofit organizations and their surrounding communities, the CTCSB markets all of the state – convention and meeting venues, hotels and attractions, and sporting venues – as a premier destination for international, national, regional and statewide conferences, conventions, and major sports events. The CTCSB is funded by private sector partnership support and through the DECD/CT Office of Tourism.
