Memphis, TN, June 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

August is the start of excitement in the city of Memphis.  It begins with Elvis Tribute Week, which marks the 40th Anniversary of Elvis’ passing and includes special guest, Priscilla Presley.  Memphis means music, the Delta Fair and Music Festival in September is an event you can’t miss minutes from the hotel, featuring The Bellamy Brothers, Aaron Carter, and so much more to keep everyone entertained.


After a long day of attending concerts and events, guests are welcomed back to the comfort of Hilton’s signature beds, Flat Screen Televisions, and Peter Thomas Roth Bath Products.  For travelers during the week, the Hilton Memphis Executive Rooms feature restricted security access with complimentary breakfast and hors d’oeuvres every weekday in our executive lounge with breathtaking panoramic views of the city.


Convenient to Memphis International Airport and popular downtown attractions, the Hilton Memphis hosts exciting events as well. “We stage many conventions, of all sizes and themes.  MidSouthCon, a Science Fiction Convention is held here each year, and it’s an exciting event for us,” states Tom Goodwin, the newly appointed Director of Sales and Marketing, and Memphis native.


Featuring over 30,000 square feet of event space, Hilton Memphis event planning professionals create personalized events with a variety of needs, from conventions and corporate retreats to small meetings and weddings. “Hilton Memphis is a romantic venue for weddings and engagement parties. Our beautiful landscaped gardens provide the perfect backdrop for wedding photos,” adds Goodwin.


The Memphis Hilton is less than 15 minutes to many of the South’s most famous tourist destinations such as Graceland, Beale Street, Sun Studios, National Civil Rights Museum, Pink Palace, Liberty Bowl Stadium, and the FedEx Forum which is home of the Memphis Grizzlies and University of Memphis NCAA Division I basketball.
