And the winner is... the Hartford Marriott!

When we came up with the idea of doing a free video for one lucky MetroHartford Alliance member, we had no idea what kind of response we'd get. So we were surprised to get some really good proposals and happy to meet people from some interesting businesses, which all made it really hard to choose just one!

But we went with the Hartford Marriott, whose idea is about showing how the hotel is a "home away from home" in Hartford. We think a video will really bring their story to life and can showcase what Hartford has to offer. We've met with dozens of employees already, who seem to truly love working there, and will start shooting Friday.

Thanks again to everyone who took the time to come up with ideas and meet with us. We hope our little contest spurred some video creativity and you'll think of us in the future!
