FIRST TIME ATTENDEES
It can be daunting to walk into a large conference on your own! If you or your organization is new to the CLHO, please let us know when you register, or even when you sign in. We're happy to assign you a "buddy" who will make sure that you've met new colleagues and be there to answer any questions.
AFTER CONFERENCE ACTIVITY
Drinking Around Museums, Hartford, will host an after-conference event at the conference center's pub and restaurant, Silver City Sports Bar & Grille. This is a great time to relax, and hang out with colleagues and skip the rush hour traffic.
This year's conference will return to the Four Points by Sheraton hotel, located at 275 Research Parkway in Meriden, CT. There is ample parking located on the premises.
