MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

At 11 a.m., the National Baptist Convention announced they're holding their annual conference in Memphis this year. 

It will bring up to 50,000 people to the city in September. 

This comes, after Memphis lost the popular COGIC annual convention to St. Louis and as the City Council debates how to pay for upgrades to Memphis' outdated and dilapidating Cook Convention Center. 

Tonight at 6 p.m., WMC Action News 5's Kontji Anthony asks Memphis mayoral candidates their vision for the convention center.
