Malloy to speak at tourism conference in Hartford


Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and House Speaker Brendan Sharkey are speaking about tourism at a Hartford conference highlighting Connecticut's tourism marketing efforts.

The event will be held Tuesday at the Connecticut Convention Center. It is expected to include a presentation by the state's marketing team of the impact of Connecticut's "Still Revolutionary" campaign.

Malloy unveiled the brand last year as part of a two-year, $27 million state marketing initiative.

He made boosting tourism a plank of his platform during the 2010 gubernatorial campaign after his Republican predecessor, Gov. M. Jodi Rell, slashed state funding for marketing and cost Connecticut its spot on a New England promotional map.
