I've been here a number of times for small conventions. The facility is not large but has two large ballrooms/exhibit halls, as well as a number of smaller breakout rooms. Two connected hotels provide additional facilities. No onsite food service but numerous restaurants within walking distance. Very good for smallish conventions...

The Grand Wayne Convention Center, located at 120 West Jefferson Boulevard (Downtown), is a great facility for public events in the Fort Wayne Area. The building takes up an entire city block, and at 225,000 square feet, the building is the second largest Indiana convention center. The decor is well balanced and contains a very modern environment for a full... More

The Grand Wayne is very easy to get to, and parking is a breeze at one of the close buy parking garages. It is tastefully designed, and was a great place to host the Annual Stewardship Banquet for the Fort Wayne Rescue Mission featuring Amy Grant. The only reason I did not give this a 5 rating was the food.... More

We were here as a exhibitor for a conference and I like it here, it's a small conference center but it's very clean and tidy. The design is quite modern and everything is big so lots of space. The atrium is very open with lots of Windows and it connects through to the Hilton which in turn connects through to... More

Opportunity to attend event here a couple weeks ago. The event included 1000 (est.) participants---the venue handled it very well. This is an excellent resource for the city of Fort Wayne.

This venue is a great place for conferences or wedding receptions. Rooms are big or smaller if needed. Great lobby area and plenty of restrooms. Parking is good in the garage across the street with a enclosed walkway.

We have attended so many events at the Grand Wayne Center, always a wonderful experience. Not sure what we did before it was built. Highly recommend any event, easy parking, clean, light and bright.

The convention center is in a great location, with easy parking and access. The building was clean and well maintained. The only thing lacking were concessions.

We attended the Annie's Craft Festival here this year. The convention center was very spacious with many friendly workers to answer questions. The restrooms were clean and plentiful enough to be sufficient for hundreds of women. The catered dinner we had was absolutely delicious, the best I have ever had at a convention. Lunch was available for a fee in... More

Where to begin? We work with this fabulous facility each late February/Early March for the Ft. Wayne Dance for All. We cannot imagine moving our event. The staff call us by name when we arrive. They tell us how much they appreciate us being there. The service staff and administrative staff are always on hand to meet our every need!... More
