National Publication Spotlights Northeast Indiana, Again

Through our work with national PR firm Development Counsellors International (DCI), the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership recently hosted a journalist for a tour of the region’s top quality of life assets as well as the food and restaurant scene. Journalist Brandon Schultz published his story in Forbes titled, “Fort Wayne, Indiana: Small City, Big Future.”

The article features all three regional communities as key destinations and highlights Fort Wayne’s growth and development, along with many attractions and amenities.

Below are highlights from the story.

“With a burgeoning downtown area embracing the future of urban design more rapidly and readily than larger, overdeveloped cities ever could, it’s an art-filled, nature-forward, food-diverse example of savvy redevelopment, poised to welcome the travelers of tomorrow.”

“Before heading out of Fort Wayne, stop by 201 W. Wayne Street to take in a monumental mural from NYC-based Key Detail. This was Allen County’s contribution to the Make It Your Own Mural Trail, the 11-county region’s $250,000 project to bring a meaningful new mural to each county, and it creates a solid jumping-off point for venturing into the surrounding region.”  

A special thank you to our partners who supported or participated in this journalist visit, including Greater Fort Wayne Inc., Huntington County Economic Development, Visit Fort Wayne, Huntington County Visitor Bureau, Sweetwater, Joseph Decuis, James Khan and Gnometown Brewing, Alex Hall and the Bradley Hotel team.
