Virtual Exposure

to
On 901 Day, otherwise known as September 1, New Memphis will host Exposure, a free celebration of all things Memphis--and this time it's virtual. Turn your love of Memphis into action! Get involved and give back: meet 75+ local organizations and businesses. Commit to volunteering, joining a team, getting involved, and celebrating your city (even if from a social distance!)

You’ll find Memphis magic around every virtual corner. Listen to live performances, watch live art demonstrations, and ask our panel of Memphis experts anything you want to know about our city. Post what you love about the 901 and tag your favorite organization to enter to win $500 for you and $500 to be donated to that organization. Visit our website to learn more, and register here to attend!

Thanks to our ever-generous title sponsor, Independent Bank, a bank that – like Memphis – is independent-minded and not afraid to do things a little differently.

Community Guidelines:
  • This is an Expo, not a Trade Show. By definition, an expo aims at educating the public, sharing innovation, promoting progress, and fostering cooperation and connections whereas trade shows are for showcasing and demonstrating products, goods, and services.
  • Be respectful. Exposure is a place for creating community and belonging, and we ask you to engage in good faith and help us create a safe space for healthy conversation.
  • Respect the platform. New Memphis may intervene when it believes it is in the best interest of the Exposure event. Our goal is to keep the platform alive, vibrant, and positive.
