Attendee Hotels

The Mid-America Trucking Show brings over 70,000 trucking professionals to Louisville, KY and area hotels book up quickly. We recommend booking your rooms right away to ensure that options are available that meet your needs. For quick and easy access to Louisville hotels, please visit our attendee accommodations website at resweb.passkey.com/go/MATS2017 or call our official housing agency at 800.743.3100.

Exhibitor Hotels

The Exhibitor Hotel blocks are available to Exhibitors once exhibit space has been confirmed and payment received. Please log-in to My Event Manager under the Exhibitor tab for the Exhibitor Hotel List and hotel contact information. In order to accurately block rooms year to year and ensure that there are enough rooms for our Exhibitors, it is important that you specify to the hotel that you are an Exhibit Management Associates MATS Exhibitor.

Exhibitor Hotel Booking Scam

In the past, unofficial housing providers have contacted MATS exhibitors directly, claiming they can secure hotel rooms on your behalf. Several unsuspecting exhibitors were caught by this scam, so we want to make everyone aware that all exhibitor reservations in the MATS Room Block are booked directly with the hotel property. None of the hotels use a 3rd party booking agent, nor does MATS.
