DESTINATION SUPPORT

The expert staff at the Memphis Convention & Visitor's Bureau can provide valuable destination insight, creative marketing ideas and helpful planning strategies for a seamless event. 

"Good hotels and restaurants help make a tour, but it's the attractions people want. Memphis has endless history, great museums, the Mississippi River and it's the King of Entertainment, where you can enjoy every genre of music. When building a new itinerary, we sometimes have to invent a tour to make a destination sell. In Memphis, we don't. They already have it all!"
