The Grand Wayne is an excellent convention center. Easy access and great floors. We liked it so much that we may come again next year.

Large center with more than adequate rooms for meetings and conferences and large halls that lend themselves to exhibitors' displays. Food service is very good, better than most that I have experienced in this sort of facility, with very friendly and helpful wait staff.

We took our granddaughter to the Indiana Music Education Association concert on January 11-12 and has pleasantly surprised by the facilities at the GWCC. The large, glass-panel window walls on the south entrance lets the sunlight shine in and creates a nice ambiance.

I was here most recently for Dancing with the Fort Wayne Stars, and I found it to be a spacious and modern convention center. The food served was adequate, and the staff treated us well. Nice place.

I helped with some details of a wedding reception that was held here. The personnel were great to work with and had everything set up just as planned. The reception area was spacious. It is located close to downtown hotels
