The event will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Dec. 2 at The Bushnell in Hartford. The half-day conference will include interactive discussions on state policies and decisions influencing Connecticut’s economic recovery, how the state has been navigating the pandemic, and what opportunities the state has for developing a sustainable economic future.
