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!  

— Dave Jones, Secretary, North American Brass Band Association

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, NFLCC

Our event was once again very successful. Each year you and your staff continue to improve the entire process and make my job a little easier.

— Michael Scro, Creative Alliance

Love the tech support. After several years of staging our event there, this is by far the smoothest process. Very professional group. I know my event is in good hands.

— Randy Rusk, DO IT BEST CORP.

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

—Dennis Costerison, Indiana Association of School Business Officials

This is my fourth year working with GWCC, and I am always impressed with everyone's desire to make our group feel welcome. All I have to do is ask for something and my needs are addressed right away. Great customer service!

— Tina Gasnarez, Bishop Luers High School

My 18th Nationals, and it doesn't get any better than this. The host, the hotel, and all who had a part did an outstanding job. Thanks to all involved—you did yourself proud!

— Grand Wayne Convention Center 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.

— Carol J. Costerison, Indiana School Nutrition Association

Grand Wayne Convention Center staff makes all the difference. They are professional, helpful, customer-focused, and supportive of the event's vision.

— Bill Gafkjen, Pastor, Indiana-Kentucky Synod, ELCA

The most professional, state-of-the-art facility in the state of Indiana.

— Gary M. Bolinger, CAE, Indiana CPA Society

When our group arrived in Fort Wayne, it was overwhelmed by the welcome from the community. From the beginning, we were amazed with the unprecedented level of attention and customer service provided. The many  ideas that were implemented, big and small, made our members feel valued and special. Grand Wayne Center is a stunning work of architecture with easy access to hotels, restaurants and entertainment. Our members were impressed with how clean, modern, entertaining and friendly Fort Wayne proved to be. The downtown is very walkable, and we loved the variety of restaurants. Fort Wayne was not on the radar for some of our members when we announced where we were holding the championship, but the top-flight facilities and personnel resulted in rave reviews in post-tournament feedback. Thanks to everyone who helped make the 2016 North American Scrabble Championship the best event we’ve ever held. Many of our members expressed interest in returning to Fort Wayne!
