Why Do You Attend MATS?
“We attend MATS to look for new products, connect and network with industry leaders, and to stay up to date with everything in trucking. We can go to the show to get answers to questions and information that we cannot find elsewhere.”
Why Do You Recommend MATS?
“I always tell people, if you are in the trucking industry, there is literally something for everybody here at MATS. You can find new products to improve your business, you can network and create new business relationships here at the show. Take the time to spend all three days here because the information and education you gain is incredibly valuable.”
“We come to MATS with a plan each year. We make a list of exhibiting companies we need to check out before the show to make sure we network and see what new products they have. Communication is possible because everybody is here at the show.”
“At MATS, we have been able to create a relationship with East Trailer Manufacturing. We were in the market for a new tarp and were able to see live demonstrations and test their new liners out. Because of these demonstrations, we were able to find the best tarp liner for our business, and ended up buying their product.”
Post Show Purchasing:
“We’ve bought products from the show before, we’ve had products sent to us from the show before, and we’ve followed up with exhibitors after the show and bought products. There’s specific products such as bumpers, antennas, and lights that we’ve been able to get at the show special price to help save money on pricing and shipping costs. MATS has always had an influence on our spending habits in a given year.”
