Why Memphis is the Best Place to Throw Your Next Event

Monday, 9 March, 2020

Memphis stands out because it has the attractions of a city, but it’s made up of closeknit communities. It’s a growing metropolis with an expanding population, yet not an overcrowded destination, where it’s impossible to try every new restaurant or stop by each music venue.

Beyond being a hub for tasty food, great music and fun nightlife, the Bluff City serves as the perfect spot for hosting professional events. A dynamic corporate landscape makes Memphis a desirable location for professional networking opportunities, corporate events, company workshops and more.

Here’s why Memphis is the perfect destination for your next event.

Unique and versatile venues


New developments, like Central Station Hotel, are the result of recent investments in the core of downtown Memphis. Here you’ll find the perfect space for your next event. Host your conference at the Central Station Hotel’s Grand Hall, which fits as many as 400 people, wowing your gala or awards banquet guests with soaring ceilings, custom chandeliers and surround lighting. No matter what the theme or size, venues like Central Station Hotel can deliver a memorable experience for your next event.

The Renasant Convention Center is another example of how Memphis is reimagining event spaces. Every square inch of the convention center is being touched by a renovation project to bring hotel-quality finishes and amenities 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.

Other venues, like the Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, Hu. Hotel, Emerge Memphis and the historic Peabody Hotel will bring a uniquely Memphis experience to your event.
