Association Group That Loves Fort Wayne

"As a past president of the Indiana Auditors' Association, I am pleased to say that our recent conference in your beautiful city was the best ever; thanks to the Grand Wayne Convention Center, the downtown connected hotel package and Visit Fort Wayne! They were all committed to making this a great experience for us. In preparation for our conference, the attention to detail was perfect, and during the meeting there was nothing for me to be concerned about. My group was delighted, and we look forward to the next time we can meet in Fort Wayne." - Bill Borne - Indiana Auditors' Association
