Rich delta terrain covers the western third of
Tennessee's low, rolling landscape, extending
from the Tennessee River to the Mississippi
River. Memphis is the region's largest city,
while northwest Tennessee's Kentucky Lake is
the largest man-made lake in the eastern U.S.
There's a special history in Memphis.
"Whether it's musical, culinary or related to
Civil Rights, there's history here that you can't
get anywhere else," said Caroline Stanfield,
public relations specialist for the Memphis
CVB. "In Memphis, the magic is in the mix.
With more than 60 attractions, planners can
customize a trip that fits their clients' needs
and can create a unique, personalized experi-
ence for repeat visitors."
Elvis Presley has long had a big presence
in Memphis, and beginning this fall, visitors
can stay at the new 450-room Guest House at
Graceland, which includes two restaurants,
spaces for meetings and special events, and
a 464-seat theater. Other event venues at
Graceland include a pavilion that can host up
to 300 for receptions, a car museum and sev-
eral dinner venues. Private evening tours of
Graceland Mansion and other attractions can
be included with any event.
In early 2017, Old Dominick Distillery will
open, offering tastings, tours and event
148,000 square feet of flexible meeting, banquet
and exhibition space
17,000 square foot Ballroom
38,200 square foot Convention Center Gallery
18 meeting rooms, pre-function space, two private
parlors and a special VIP/media suite
We have created a venue that takes your breath
away as you enter the room and is ideal for any type
of event – from a formal banquet or general session
to a themed celebration. And you'll find lodging,
dining and shopping only a few steps away.
