Why Did You Attend MATS?

“I attended MATS because I wanted to talk one on one with product engineers to get real feedback on why certain engine parts would and wouldn’t work for our shop and fleet. I gained essential knowledge and information that I was able to bring back to fix our fleet issues.”

Why Do You Recommend MATS?

“The amount of knowledge that is packed into MATS is truly invaluable. If you have any question in the industry, you can get your answer here at MATS. I haven’t been able to get specific and truthful answers about my fleet anywhere except this show.”

“MATS really gives you the opportunity to improve your business operations. After only one year of attending, we have already become dealers for FASS Fuel System and PDI. Getting these opportunities is only possible for us because of this show.” 

Networking:

“We created a business relationship with FASS Fuel System at the show. Through live product demonstrations and asking questions, we found a solution to our engines, and are now getting half a mile more per gallon. Through this face to face communication, we actually became dealers now too for FASS Fuel System.”

Post Show Purchasing:

“MATS definitely has shown already to be influencing our purchase decisions. I did a live demo with Hunter Engineering because we are looking to build a couple bays to our alignment show shop. Going into MATS 2023 and beyond, I am bringing down one of our other top level employees with a purchasing budget to buy and purchase products that can help us get to our goal of adding more alignment bays soon.”

More Attendee Spotlights

“At MATS, you really get to experience the entire trucking industry all at once. You get to see the newest products and see how companies are changing each year.”
“MATS was truly a 10 out of 10 experience for me. Going into the 2023 show, I know I am going to set aside a spending budget to make sure I can order the best new products to improve my operations.”
“It’s hard to describe just how much is going on at one place during MATS.”
