TRAVEL RALLY DAY
“Then & Now” Extravaganza Show

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 | 5:00 – 7:00 PM

Fremont Street Experience Third Street Stage

Join the Las Vegas Convention & Visitor Authority (LVCVA) and your colleagues with the Las Vegas Tourist Guides Guild (LVTGG) in celebrating National Travel and Tourism Week. This is a chance for the entire community to show their support for the economic importance of travel and tourism to Southern Nevada. The official color for Travel Rally Day is RED so we encourage everyone to GO RED at the National Travel and Tourism Week’s main event.

We ask our members, industry partners, and community businesses to show support for Tourism and Travel on Tuesday, May 8 at the Fremont Street Experience Third Street Stage. The LVCVA is hosting its annual Travel Rally Day by celebrating our local community and visitors who make Las Vegas the world’s best destination for leisure and business travel. This year’s event, led by Host Committee Chairman Oscar Goodman and iconic showgirls, will include a “Then & Now” Extravaganza Show with performances by Frank Sinatra and Elvis impersonators followed by a final performance from local top 40’s band, Zowie Bowie. Locals and tourists will have the opportunity to win special giveaways from hotels, shows and attractions. There will also be a chance to win drink tickets and VIP passes to the Four Queens Hotel’s private patio for free appetizers and an open bar during the rally only.  

Celebrate our #1 industry in Southern Nevada: Tourism!

Many of our members have been certified as professional Las Vegas Tour Guides by the guild, meaning they have completed and passed the guild’s rigorous 8-week Las Vegas Guide training class and testing.
