The Mid-America Trucking Show is proud to provide its Attendees with informative, constructive, and trucking-oriented seminars; information that goes well beyond "good to know" and enters into a "must-know" situation. These seminars will provide invaluable information for companies, fleets, and trucking professionals. All seminars take place in South Wing Conference Center Room B-104. All seminars are free-of-charge and do not require advanced registration.

The initial seminar schedule will be published by January 1 and may be revised up until the show.

MATS seminars are coordinated with the support of the Kentucky Trucking Association
