WHERE TO EAT
Connecticut Convention Center rules state that NO outside food and/or beverages may be brought into the Convention Center.
This map and list is as comprehensive as you can get. Attendees should be able to find any type of restaurant and food that they like in a very short walking distance around the convention center.
The Convention Center’s Concession Stand will be open (Hours, Menu and Pricing coming soon)
Recyclable/Refillable water bottles/beverage containers are acceptable.
The Convention Center will have a “Digital Discount” board set up during the event. How it works: Take a picture with your phone, go to the restaurant and show the photo and you’ll reap the rewards of the discount. There are numerous discounts for both restaurants and places to visit. Check it out before you go get your food.
CONVENTION CENTER EVENT ATTENDEES
RESTAURANT and VISITOR LOCATION DISCOUNTS
The Connecticut Convention Center has partnered with 15 restaurants and over 10 Visitor Locations to offer Convention Center Event Attendees Discounts. When you arrive in the building, there will be a brochure at the Information Desk with more information about each individual deal. Instead of a physical coupon or code, we have digital signage on screens through the building that display what we call a “digital coupon”. Attendees will take a photo of the screen with their phone and present it at the location to get their discount.
