Feel Like a Rock Star Main Page:
We hear stories from meeting planners in large metropolitan cities, where there are plenty of activities and large venues. These are great amenities, but we have also heard the other side of these stories. Feeling underappreciated, travel concerns, higher prices, meetings too far from one another, etc. The reasons add up.
Why not meet in a city where your event is put center stage, with all the amenities of a larger city, with a smaller community feel?
Fort Wayne is 15% more affordable in expenses across the board than you’ll find in Indianapolis and other major cities. Our hotel, parking and venue fees are all considerably less than you’ll find elsewhere.
