From intimate board meetings to expansive trade shows to full service banquets, we stand ready to make your next event a grand experience!
If you haven’t visited us lately, you’re in for a nice surprise. There’s more to see and do, and a short walk delivers you to sidewalk cafés, eateries, fine dining, nationally acclaimed museums and art galleries, a vibrant nightlife, live music, stage shows, botanical gardens, an internationally recognized library, and an extensive parks and trails network along Fort Wayne’s three rivers. It’s all part of a reimagined downtown where business, sports, and culture thrive.
“I received more comments from attending members about the friendly, courteous service given by the folks of Fort Wayne. Fort Wayne is a big little town with safe streets, good eats, and neat things to see and do. It is amazing how many people participated in making this show such a joyful experience.”
— Gibby Gibson, NFLCCStart Planning Your Next Event
In Fort Wayne, the "welcome" mat is always out and we always have a friendly "hello" waiting for every guest.

It is alway a delight to work with the GWCC team. We had our most successful conference in years. We had an increase in attendees, and we had our largest exhibit display ever.

The Grand Wayne Center is an excellent facility. Very professional and knowledgeable—they know their business and make a meeting planner's work easy.
