Events & Activities

Prepare for the most exciting Alabama Trucking Association Convention in decades! We are taking full advantage of this famed vacation destination known for its buzzing energy, 24-hour casinos, world-class restaurants, and endless entertainment options. Highlights during our meeting include daily industry discussions and leadership presentations, including a presentation from keynote speaker Robert Darling, author of “Inside the President’s Bunker 9/11/01: The White House.” Of course, the traditional Association business meetings, golf tournament, special social events and award presentations are scheduled.

We’ve also planned day trips and activities to satisfy all interests. These afternoon tour options include excursions to the Hoover Dam; a shopping tour of Downtown Summerlin; a tour of Historic Las Vegas & The Strip; and High Tea at the Mandarin Hotel. And to cap the weekend, we’re going as a group to the Saturday evening late performance of Cirque Du Soleil “O” at the Bellagio — this is a must-see event.

All tours and events are optional, and availability is limited. A detailed agenda with full registration information is available in the convention registration packet available for download here.

You don’t want to miss this once-in-a-generation chance to gather with your ATA friends in Fabulous Las Vegas!
