My wife and I went to the center because our grandson was in the middle school all state choir. The center was ideally the logical place for all of the students. A Hilton hotel joined the center, and the performance was across the street at the Embassy Theatre. Everything was connected with above street crosswalks. The center was huge and... More

Took my wife there for the nutcracker. Had a good view of the stage no matter where you set. Theater was nice, as they kept the original inside. Overall it was a very nice experience.

This was my first time here. It was pretty good. There are some convention centers that I have been too that are huge. This was about the right size for Ft. Wayne and it was in great shape and well taken care of.

My son -in-law and I went to the annual boat and travel show at the convention center. We had a great time seeing all the exhibits and new ideas shown there. We got a lot of info and tips. The convention center and the easy parking access made it a great evening out.

Attended a convention with over 3000 other people for two days. The facility was handicap friendly, seating was comfortable, sound system more than adequate, restrooms clean, staff professional and available. Nice experience.

Visited here with my grandson who is a Lego fan. They hold an event here on the brickworld.com circuit. Beautiful convention hall and associated Hilton hotel.

We were there for a meeting of the Extra Milers Club. It only lasts three hours. The most important feature is the garage next door. (We come from Philadelphia where parking is a hassle.) The garage is connected by a skywalk. That makes for safety and weather protection. The other nice feature was that we went across the street to... More
