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
