Mobilize 2020: Great Dining Options in Atlanta

The Transportation Alliance is gearing up for Mobilize 2020, the industry’s only in-person event dedicated to the for-hire passenger ground transportation industry, in Atlanta from November 7 to 9, 2020. Our annual convention and expo’s agenda has a packed slate of experts to help fleet operators through the pandemic—and will help position them for the coming business resurgence.

Mobilize 2020 will provide an informative, innovative and, most importantly, safe environment. Masks will be required for all attendees and all events will ensure social distancing according to CDC guidelines.

But of course, in between attending one of Mobilize 2020’s educational sessions focused on business opportunities and browsing the Expo Hall, you will need to plan for dinner. If you would like to step outside of the hotel and go for a meal or two, we have compiled a list of restaurants that are guaranteed to knock your socks off.

In addition to our roundup of restaurants within walking distance or a short ride from the hotel, we’d like to present a must-have list of local eateries, sprinkled with special selections from Rick’s Picks*, courtesy of TTA’s very own Atlanta-based member, TTA Past President Rick Hewatt of Checker Cab Co.
