Celebrate CT! 2018

CERC's annual event, Celebrate CT!, which honors economic development successes throughout the state, was held on the evening of Wednesday, December 5, 2018 at Infinity Music Hall & Bistro in Hartford. The evening celebration featured a review of recent accomplishments from across the state, awards recognizing top people, organizations and initiatives, and networking for participants to connect to others who have a similar goal of making Connecticut a more competitive business environment.  Learn more in our press release.
