Anissa Ladd, Senior Sales Manager at the Connecticut Convention Center has earned certification as a professional Association Sales Executive. Ladd, having successfully completed the nine week course offered by the Professional Convention Management Association, was awarded the designation.

Ladd is the only meetings space sales professional in Connecticut—and only one of 10 in the country— to earn CASE designation in 2007.

“Having certified association sales executives on our team puts the Connecticut Convention Center at a distinct advantage in the association marketplace,” said Jeanne O’Grady, the Connecticut Convention Center’s director of sales and marketing. “We’re very proud of Anissa’s accomplishment.”

The 540,000-square-foot Connecticut Convention Center is the largest full service meeting place in southern New England, with 205,000 square feet of prime exhibit space.
