Loading Docks

Grand Wayne Convention Center is designed to simplify your event process with enhanced accessibility to the spaces within.

Foyers & Corridor Space

Public spaces adjacent to convention hall or meeting room entrances are typically considered complimentary pre-function space for the event within the room. This works ideally for event registrations, luncheons, or cocktail and networking activities. These spaces are enhanced with plenty of natural light, polished terrazzo, and Grand Wayne Center’s unique, sleek architectural style. 

These spaces may also be used independently as event space, if no other events occupy the adjoining rooms. Please talk with a Grand Wayne Center sales manager for details. Click here to see a gallery of additional Foyer & Corridor Space photos
