[photo] So good to see you, Connecticut

Maximize your inclusion in our new campaign —
by sharing your updated imagery with us.

Through our new “So Good to See You” tourism campaign, we are encouraging Connecticut residents and out-of-state visitors to explore all Connecticut has to offer through fresh eyes. Of course, to do that well, we need fresh imagery to inspire them—particularly timely imagery that shows the enhancements you’ve made to enhance their safety as well as their experience. So we’re hungry for you to share new images we can use to help promote your business!

All of the photos we are uploading are free from any copyrights and trademarks. The photographer, the location and any people shown in these photographs have agreed that we have the rights to use these images to promote our tourism offering.

5 Key Steps You Can Take Now

Over the past few months, we’ve been supporting your heroic efforts to stay connected—spreading the word about your takeout services, outdoor escapes, and virtual experiences. Now we’re busy preparing a new campaign to promote the official re-opening of many tourism businesses. But we need your help. Here are five things you can do right now to let us know that you’re ready to welcome visitors—and to be included in our upcoming promotions.

1. Make sure you self-certify that you are following the state’s safety guidelines.

Moving forward, we will only be able to promote those businesses that have completed this process and are included on the state’s list of self-certified businesses. Once your type of establishment is allowed to open, you can go online to self-certify.

2. Download and display the state’s COVID-19 Prevention Badge/Poster.

This will signal to others that you’re following the state’s strict safety guidelines to protect employees and visitors. It will also let visitors know what their responsibilities are to keep others safe.

3. Update your own website and social media sites.

Make sure your hours of operation are up-to-date. Also include any information guests will need in advance to plan for a safe visit with you.

4. Notify the Office of Tourism about your opening plans.

Once you’ve self-certified, email jean.hebert@ct.gov with your opening date and any other pertinent details.

5. Update your CTvisit.com listing.

Be sure to update your CTvisit.com listing with any new hours, new information and new seasonal photos—particularly ones that show the updates you’ve made to keep visitors safe.
