Due to the uncertainty around Covid-19, the 50th Anniversary of the Mid-America Trucking Show will be rescheduled.

Dates currently being evaluated for MATS 50th are September 16-18, 2021 or March 24-26, 2022. We are actively consulting with exhibitors and attendees to determine which dates are most viable and a final decision will be made by February 15, 2021.

We remain committed to providing timely and transparent communication to ensure that MATS 50th will continue to deliver the level of connection, discovery, and face-to-face value we have all come to expect from the Trucking Industry’s largest annual event.
