To take advantage of this exciting feature log onto http://manage.ctvisit.com.  Once you arrive at this web-site for the first time you will be asked to register as a partner.  We will ask you to provide the following information to register:

  • The company/property that you represent
  • Your e-mail address
  • The address of your property, including city, state, and zip code information
  • Your contact phone number
  • A CTvisit.com user name and password which you are able to define

Once you have submitted your registration information, it will be placed in a company/partner pending section of the CTvisit.com site.  Your information will then be reviewed by a member of the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism staff, and you will be contacted to verify.  Once you have been approved as a CTvisit.com partner, you will receive an e-mail notification of your approval through the e-mail address you provided during registration.

Upon approval of your registration, you will be able to post your specials, deals, and packages to CTVisit.com.  To add your special/package information:

  • Visit http://manage.ctvisit.com in your user name and password that you selected when you registered.  If you forgot your password, type in your user name, click on “Did you forget your password” and an e-mail will be forwarded to you with your password information
  • Click on the submit button

This will direct you to the web page where you can supply your special/package information.  Once at this web page click on “Add Specials” located on the left hand side of the orange file menu bar, and you will be directed to a web page form where we will ask you to supply the following information for your special/package that will be posted to CTvisit.com.

  • Select your “Travel Entry” (a.k.a. your property name).
  • Type in a “Short Description” of your special/package.  This will be what a visitor to CTvisit.com will initially view about your special/package so please keep it short and descriptive.
  • Type in your detailed “Description” of what your package has to offer.
  • Type in the contact information that CTvisit.com site users can use to gain additional information regarding your special/package.
  • Provide the beginning date and ending date of when your special/package will be valid.  This is important information because it will be used by CTvisit.com to determine the period of time your special/package information will be shown on the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism, Tourism Division site.  Once 12 a.m. is reached on the day after the ending date you provide, your special will be automatically removed from CTvisit.com.

Similar to when you register as a partner of CTvisit.com, upon submitting your special/package information, your information will be placed in a “Specials Pending” area for review by the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism, Tourism Division.  We will check for spelling and make sure that contact information has been provided for your submitted special/package.  Once your special is approved, you will receive an e-mail notifying you that your special/package has been approved.  Your information will then be featured in the “Specials” section, which is linked directly from the CTvisit.com home page.  Additionally, the special will also be connected to the detailed listing of your property on CTvisit.com.  In the event that we find spelling errors or other missing information from the special/package you submitted, an e-mail will be sent to notify you of its rejection and ask you to resubmit your information through http://manage.ctvisit.com.
