Why Do You Attend MATS?
“I go to MATS to find business solutions to help my business grow and run smoother. I’ve talked to exhibiting companies such as Volvo with issues with my truck to find out how I can save money and time. You can’t beat these relationships you create here.”
Why Do You Recommend MATS?
“I tell everybody, you have to come to the Mid America Trucking Show if you are in the industry. I’ve gained so much information by coming here, there’s always something you can write down, and there’s always something new you can learn here. I’ve bought products and created long lasting business relationships here at this show.”
“There’s nowhere else you get firsthand education like you do here at MATS. Everything I know in trucking, I’ve learned from attending this show.”
“You never know who you are going to run into at MATS. I always tell people to bring a notepad and business cards to the show here. Follow up and touch base with the connections you make here. Everybody here at MATS can help your business.”
Future Generation of Drivers:
“I always take my son here to the show, he’s a truck driver as well now. Him and his friends will ask me questions about truck driving all the time, and I tell them, they need to get to MATS. This is where I got all my information, they need to be here. I’m a resource of information because of this show.”
