Hobby Group that loves Fort Wayne

"I am pleased to report that Fort Wayne exceeded than our criteria. The staff at both downtown hotels and convention center leaned over backwards to make our event a success and the city of Fort Wayne is a great city with interesting things to do, safe streets, and great places to eat. These are very important aspects for a large out of town group. The Visit Fort Wayne folks were a pleasure to work with, too." - Gibby Gibson, National Site Selection of the National Fishing Lures Collectors Club
