Why Do You Attend MATS?

“I go to MATS to stay up to date about what’s happening in the trucking industry. Even if you are following along on the internet, you still aren’t as updated as you need to be. The seminars provide a great forum to get the latest information and to also be able to ask questions and get real time answers.”

Why Do You Recommend MATS?

“There’s nowhere bigger to attend than MATS in this industry. No other show stacks up when you factor in the size, the learning opportunities, and the latest in technology and products. Plan to spend all three days at the show so you can really take in all the vendors that have products and services that can improve your business.”

“We’ve built everlasting relationships because of MATS. We’ve been able to form long lasting relationships with companies like Marvin Johnson & Associates and Brands Insurance that have allowed us to change and improve our entire infrastructure to improve efficiency.”  

Education:

“I always make sure to attend multiple seminars at MATS. FMCSA, KeepTrucking, and DOT seminars are always ones I circle on my daily agenda to make sure I attend. They have so much information about roadside assistance and inspections, as well as what is currently happening in the industry. I always learn things that I didn’t know existed that are happening in trucking because of this seminar. You don’t stay up to date unless you are here at MATS.”

Buying Product:

“MATS definitely influences our purchase decisions. We are currently expanding our facility, so we have been looking for trailer movers. At MATS, we are able to connect with exhibitors and compare trailer mover products live, on the spot. In the past, we have bought windshield wipers and tires from exhibitors at the show that have helped make improvements to our operations.” 

More Attendee Spotlights

“The Mid America Trucking Show is the only show I attend. It’s where you can stay up to date with all the changes in the trucking industry, while being able to connect and network with industry professionals.”
“At MATS, we are able to network and connect with existing companies we have built relationships with over the years. It gives us the chance to do business face to face and really see what companies are doing that can help us improve.”
“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.”
