Convention centers are adding to downtowns, and vice versa
from Successful Meetings
Fort Wayne, Indiana, has enjoyed a steady influx of visitors since the city expanded its Grand Wayne Convention Center in 2005. The extension has not only made the venue a more desirable destination for outside meeting planners looking for an affordable option that can accommodate a sizable group, but has helped stoke development in the area — e.g., the building of new retail, restaurants and riverfront entertainment options — which has helped lure locals to downtown in the process.
