Convention Center Description

With all that Memphis has to offer, you will want to be in the center of the action.

Downtown Memphis is alive with new growth and at the heart of it all is the Memphis Cook Convention Center and Cannon Center for the Performing Arts. The convention center, only 20 minutes from the Memphis International Airport, boasts the stately 28,000 s.f. Cannon Center Ballroom, a column free Main Exhibit Hall of more than 120,000 s.f. 31 meeting rooms and the impressive 2,100 seat Cannon Center for the Performing Arts. Add to all that a 35,000 s.f. special exhibit hall and parking for 750 cars.

The 125,000 square-foot, column-free Exhibit Hall can be used as an impressive Main Hall or split into three qually impressive but smaller halls. This level also offers five column-free ballrooms that can be combined into one if required. Five meeting rooms, offering 16-foot ceilings, complement the overall space. A prefunction foyer located between the Hall and the Ballroom is perfect for registration or receptions. An outdoor terrace overlooking the mighty Mississippi provides a relaxing place for breaks.
