Allen County health workers: Keep your preventative appointments, no state ID required for COVID-19 tests at one clinic

The Election Board is putting in a number of safeguards for voters who’ll go in person June 2 as well as for poll workers, about 75% of whom are age 60 and over. This includes limiting early voting from 28 days to 5½: May 26-June 1 at not five locations but one site, the Grand Wayne Convention Center.

Just because some COVID-19-related restrictions have been lifted doesn’t mean the potentially deadly virus is gone. At the same time, Allen County health officials say they’re seeing a lot of

To conduct remote meetings, we offer three types of systems. Two are traditional “around a table” systems that can be configured for groups up to 20 people. These meetings are a good fit for our Shaffer Boardroom and small to medium size meeting rooms. The third type is for larger, more complex meetings with broadcast grade cameras and operators, slide deck support from multiple computers, and an event producer to stitch it all together. This option provides a seamless experience for presenters and attendees alike. Meetings of this caliber are best suited for our Convention Hall or Anthony Wayne Ballroom.

Croninger F.A.M.E. 2020

Although we weren't able to enjoy the FAME (Foundation for Art & Music in Education) Festival this year at the Grand Wayne due to COVID-19, we still want to share with you some of the hard work of the students. Check out their incredible work in the video!

This video is a highlight of the F.A.M.E. artwork that would have been displayed, but due to conditions out of our control the festival was cancelled.

03/18/2020

As a public venue, the health and safety of our guests and staff remain our top priority. During this cautionary period of coping with COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we are taking all necessary steps of prevention as dictated by the Center for Disease Control, federal, state, and local authorities to reduce the spread and impact of the virus. We are actively working with event organizers to reschedule events. Understandably, some events have been forced to cancel, and we will continue to help those groups through that process. If you are planning to attend an upcoming event, please contact your event organizer for status updates. If you are an organizer and have questions or concerns, please contact your Grand Wayne Convention Center sales manager.

Thank you for your patience as we collectively work through this situation.
