Ridgefield resident Luis Lopez was recognized by the Connecticut Convention & Sports Bureau for helping to generate major events business for the state. Lopez, the owner of Latin Moves Dance Studio in Stamford, received a “2017 Bring It Home Award” for founding the annual Connecticut Salsa Fest. 

Lopez was honored at the bureau’s 2017 Hospitality Industry and Awards Night that celebrated the positive impact that conventions, conferences, meetings, sports and special events have on Connecticut – from job creation to generating local, regional and state revenue. 

H. Scott Phelps, president of the bureau, the state’s official meetings and sports event sales and marketing organization, said the event provided an opportunity to “network with so many hospitality industry members from across the state who understand the importance of marketing our state to meeting planners and sports promoters.”
