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.

The meeting rooms were large.; the restrooms were able to handle the crowd without long wait times. When we waited for the 10;00 p.m. shuttle, we were able to wait inside. I felt safe there. It was close to the catholic church

I've just spent the week here at a conference. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is great and within walking distance of many museums. I was able to see many sights over the lunch breaks and still have time to eat.
