Meeting Location: Memphis, TN, USA
For young folk (of all ages), and everyone who gets, “All shook up,” by phrases like, “You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog,” or “Wise men say…,” or “Love me tender…,” Memphis and Elvis’ Graceland is an absolute must visit. You will be moved in ways you never thought possible. If you are into “country” music, Nashville is a gorgeous 3.5 hour car ride away. If that and the king of Rock ‘N Roll are not enough, Memphis, and the convention center, are right on the shores of the mighty Mississippi River. You can return to the steamboat days of American writer Mark Twain, with a ride on the American Queen or the Queen of the West old-time steam boats. If the beauty of nature is your thing, stroll the world-class Memphis Botanic Garden.

So much more. Shopping. Internationally famous dining. Performing arts. The Memphis Zoo. Beale Street. Let your imagination wander through the Memphis iPhone and Android apps, http://www.memphistravel.com/app. But don’t you step on my blue suede shoes!

Meeting Facility: Memphis Cook Convention Center
With 28,000 square meters of space, sporting 31 meeting rooms of all sizes and two large exhibit halls, we have all the space we need for yet another successful meeting. A sky bridge provides convenient access to the Sheraton Hotel. The convention center looks out on the Mississippi River on one side and is immediately adjacent to the Main Street Trolley Line, giving direct access to downtown Memphis and world famous Beale Street. Just south of the Convention Center, Main Street is now an idyllic pedestrian mall, no automobile traffic allowed. An important part of the convention center is the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts…comedy, classical music, gospel music, and of course, Elvis.

Connect with your old friends, make new friends, find the products you need, explore the research that propels us into the future, and broaden your cultural horizons. All at the Memphis Cook Convention Center.
