The Transportation Alliance is gearing up for Mobilize 2019, our annual convention and expo in Las Vegas from Oct. 16 to 19. The first day will start with our Annual Golf Tournament & Awards. Later that night, we will officially get the party started with our Networking Kickoff Party at Bally’s, which will include entertainment, an open bar and hors d’oeuvres. This is the perfect opportunity to get to know other leaders in the for-hire transportation industry before being immersed in an informational, innovative and fun-filled experience.
Our agenda features Learning Labs in Innovation & Technology, Diversification & Marketing, and Operational Excellence. Designed with an everchanging industry in mind, these sessions provide access to tools, skills and knowledge that are critical to the continued success of your company.
While Mobilize 2019 will serve as a one-stop shop for everything industry-related, Las Vegas is a one-of-a-kind city with many quirks that should be explored. Should you find free time during your busy schedule, here are a few shows, sites and restaurants worth exploring:
Did you really go to Vegas if you did not see a show? Here are a few crowd favorites performing during the week of the convention!
- Lady Gaga
- Phil Collins
- The Beatles Love by Cirque Du Soleil
Fremont Street Experience
Contrary to what tourists may believe, Old Vegas is actually the city’s downtown. Located just a couple miles north of the Las Vegas strip, it is the oldest part of the city, founded in 1905. At the Fremont Street Experience, you will find attractions such as ziplining, old-school casinos and Viva Vision, the world’s largest LED screen.
The Las Vegas Arts District

The Arts District is a hidden gem in the center of the city. A revitalization of the almost-forgotten-about Charleston Boulevard Underpass Railroad of 1949, this area is now home to a host of galleries, bars and street art.
Las Vegas ATV Tours
Dying to beat the hustle and bustle of city life and venture into the desert? These guided tours will take you through miles of mountainous trails and sand dunes on brand new ATVs.
The Neon Museum
The Neon Museum collects, preserves and displays some of Las Vegas’ oldest and most iconic signs. Known as the neon boneyard, this one-hour tour is like taking a ride on a time machine through Las Vegas history.
Makers & Finders
|Makers & Finders|
Makers & Finders is a Latin-inspired coffee shop and bar with a menu featuring foods from Central and South America. Located in the heart of The Las Vegas Arts District, it is the perfect place for a quick meal after exploring the area.
Only found in select cities across North America, Momofuku is a concept of world-renowned chef David Chang. Described as Contemporary Asian cuisine, the menu draws influence from the United States, Korea and Japan. Each location boasts a different menu, so it is worth exploring what the Las Vegas menu has to offer.
Small plates are all the rage these days, and Lago indulges you in some of your favorite Italian dishes without the guilt that comes along with it. It is the first Italian-inspired restaurant from the award winning chef, Julian Serrano.
Tacos El Gordo
If you are out and about exploring Old Vegas, pop into Tacos El Gordo for authentic Tijuana tacos. The restaurant is family-owned-and-operated and receives rave reviews.
