Since we first opened our doors in 1985, the Grand Wayne Convention Center has earned its reputation for extraordinary service. Frankly, it’s the reason we can boast that nearly 80% of our operation is based on repeat business—groups that insist on coming back after their first visit. If you have a request, we get it done—no excuses.

Virtually every service you need is available in-house: a competent and knowledgeable staff, award-winning event hosts to accommodate every need, full-service event management with CAD schematics, complimentary concierge services, a fully equipped, customizable, state-of-the-art AV, advanced telecommunications technology (videoconferencing, webcasting, and more), free high-performance WiFi capable of accommodating up to 5,000 users simultaneously, free room set and in-house engineering, and a gourmet chef, kitchen staff, and white-glove catering services.

Come and see for yourself. We'll introduce you to our staff, show you around, and make you an event planning hero. Click here to see a full list of our competitive advantages.
