I want to thank the Grand Wayne Center staff for making this year's NABBA a wonderful experience. The vendors raved about the facility and the service they received; the rooms for solo and ensemble were set up perfectly; and the in house staff was very helpful with directions and very friendly to all our patrons. Looking forward to returning the next two years!
