The Convention Center was right accross the street from our hotel which was wonderful and convenant. If you did not want to walk out side you could also take the cat walks to center. The building had many bathrooms and was well maintained.

Numerous visits for meetings and conventions. Huge facility can accommodate large and small groups at the same time. Located within the Hilton and across from the Courtyard. Easy parking and walking downtown.

I have been there for meetings on a grand scale for work. The rooms were very spacious and food was very good. Staff on hand was very attentive and friendly. Went back for the holidays and decoration were very nice. We were able to take some really nice family photos

I've been to this convention center for a couple different events and I think it's a pretty nice place. It's clean and spacious, with both large event halls and smaller rooms. The building itself is located downtown, within walking distance of a few fast food and finer dining restaurants. The convention center has large windows, which both let in a... More

Big or intimate meeting rooms available. Great place to stay. You don't have to even go outside to visit the embassy theater. Plenty of fine dining nearby and the botanical gardens and Parkview stadium is across the street.

Downtown convention center linked to the Hilton Hotel. Large for the size of the town, right downtown across the street from the minor league stadium. Only issue was parking wasn't obvious -- there are garages and some surface parking, and you can access the convention center through the Hilton's lobby.

Beautiful, stage of the art facility. Full wall of glass windows looks out on Downtown Ft. Wayne. They - and the adjoining Hilton - made our group feel special!

I have worked on numerous corporate events here and it is a great venue. Best option for corporate events in Fort Wayne. And the staff was always willing to help to make things run smoothly.
