Eno Hall, 754 Hopmeadow Street/CT10, Simsbury, CT.

In only a few more years, the longest interstate rail trail in New England will be complete, but what does that mean for tourism and economic development in our region. There are lessons to be learned from NY and our keynote speaker, Fran Gotcsik of Parks, Trails New York has first-hand knowledge about not only what happened there, but how it came to be. Cost is $20 and includes a box lunch.

We are inviting local and state officials from along the entire 84 mile corridor as well as tourism and hospitality industry officials, advocates and the press

We also have an optional, guided bike tour of the area. Go to www.2014TrailSummit.org for the agenda and information about the keynote speaker and the bike tour.
