Memphis Convention Center

The Memphis Convention Center is being reimagined with a game-changing renovation that includes enhancements to the building’s interior and exterior. Every square inch of the convention center will be touched by this project, bringing hotel-quality finishes and amenities that are desired by meeting planners and their delegates. The convention reinvention vision is for meeting spaces that embrace the river and skyline views along with outdoor terraces, glass-enclosed concourses, pre-function space, and 46 breakout meeting rooms.

When complete in the Fall of 2020, the Memphis Convention Center will feature a column-free 118,000-square-foot main exhibit hall, a new exterior concourse and pre-function space, 46 breakout rooms, a secondary flex space that easily converts to a 67,500-square-foot ballroom, the largest in the region, and a 28,000-square foot ballroom to host smaller events. The renovation will also include public art, and digital wayfinding, and additional loading docks for easier load in and load out.
