Attention All Guests: Construction Updates

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE:

Due to unforseen circumstances associated with the construction and renovation at the Memphis Convention Center, the Cannon Center will not be accepting any new business until the renovation is complete.  We are accepting hold dates for bookings from October 1, 2020 and beyond. We will continue to service all events currently booked between October 2019 and Setember 2020.   

Due to safety concerns along with adequate and safe ingress and egress the Convention Center's parking garage will be out of service beginning Thursday, October 17, 2019 until March 1, 2020.

Event Attendees for Cannon Center or Memphis Convention Center events:

Recommended lot is the River Parks (Mud Island) Garage at Front and Poplar. Other lots can be found by using the Premium park app or the Park Whiz parking app. Parking rates vary upon vehicle size and entry time.

Guests coming to events at the Cannon Center may enter at the main entrance at Main Street and Poplar Avenue or the west entrance at Front Street and Poplar Avenue.  Both entrances are on the ground floor and are ADA accessible. 

The Cannon Center Box Office is located on the first level inside the East Concourse adjacent to Main Street between Poplar Avenue and Exchange Street.

Front Street closure due to Convention Center renovation to start October 7

Posted on 09/27/2019

Beginning Monday, October 7 and lasting until May 1, 2020, all lanes of Front Street between Poplar Avenue and Jackson Avenue will be closed to traffic. For those exiting the Hernando DeSoto Bridge at Exit 1, East Bound I-40, vehicles will be directed to take the first ramp to Riverside Drive and continue south to Jefferson Avenue.

The Front Street closure is a necessary measure to ensure the safety of all road users during the renovation of the Memphis Convention Center. The result of work taking place during this time will produce a modern pass through on Front Street under the main convention hall, along with the addition of new meeting room space on the west side of the facility.
