Visit Fort Wayne is launching an initiative to build a 10-year vision and roadmap to define tourism-based economic growth and development that will contribute to a healthy community and high quality of life for residents. 

Visit Fort Wayne has contracted with CSL International to facilitate, research, plan, and build the plan during a 20-week process and enlisted the partnership of Allen County Government, Capital Improvement Board, City of Fort Wayne, and Greater Fort Wayne Inc. to help with the development of our Tourism Master Plan to reflect the needs of our residents and visitors!

Each year, Allen County benefits from $741 million a year in visitor spending, and we have the opportunity to continue building upon our strong tourism and hospitality industry.

The hope of Fort Wayne / Allen County’s Tourism Master Plan is to create a long-term vision, strategy, and implementation plan to help guide the activities, operations, and resources for Fort Wayne / Allen County and the Visit Fort Wayne organization, as well as help guide industry stakeholders as they invest in, develop and grow the visitor industry, reflect Fort Wayne’s personality and values, and make the destination an enticing and enjoyable destination for both visitors and residents.

Let's seize the opportunity to advance Fort Wayne’s quality of life assets for residents and inspire growth for the future using the economic power of tourism. Let's build for the tourism of tomorrow!
