How Memphis' Renasant Convention Center is Responding to COVID-19

COVID Initiatives

  • Memphis' Renasant Convention Center became a GBAC STARTM-accredited facility in August 2020. Learn more about the accreditation granted through the Global BioRisk Advisory Council.
  • Memphis' Renasant Convention Center is adhering to the Event Safety Alliance Reopening Guide.
  • Sanitizing stations, thermal imaging and fogging machines are in use on-site.
  • An internal COVID-19 Safety Committee is actively meeting with planners to create viable, customized plans for each group. The committee also oversees continuing education for venue staff and monitor protocols and procedures. 
  • Complementing these safety protocols, groups can take advantage of modernized convention center spaces designed to create flexible meeting space and embrace the outdoors, including:
    • An outdoor terrace overlooking the Mississippi River and an open-air concourse connecting the center to Memphis' Main Street
    • Planners can also work with the Renasant Convention Center team to leverage custom spaces. For example, Front Street can be closed and transformed into an outdoor exhibit hall. Protected from the elements and brightly illuminated, the streetscape flows between the main convention facility and five riverfront meeting rooms.
