YEARS IN THE INDUSTRY: 6 Years
FIRST YEAR ATTENDED MATS: 2022
Why Did You Attend MATS?
“We attended MATS because we wanted to see the latest and greatest products and technologies the trucking industry has to offer. MATS gave us a tremendous opportunity to network and start building business relationships with companies exhibiting at the show.”
Why Do You Recommend MATS?
“MATS is a great opportunity to see so many different aspects of the trucking industry at the highest quality. All the vendors present at the show have products that you want to see and put on your truck, or bring back to your business. If you need a ready to go product to improve your business, you can find it here at MATS.”
“MATS has absolutely influenced our purchase decisions already. After attending for the first time, we are already making plans to redo one of our trucks. Going into 2023, we are steadily growing and want to add another truck by year’s end, so we definitely want to increase our budget for the show and put some of our increased profit into products and service at MATS.”
“We are currently trying to build and improve our shop right now, so a point of coming to MATS was finding products that can improve our shop quality. Big Ass Fans and Chrome Shop Mafia were two exhibitors that we sought out ahead of getting to the show, to create a relationship. We left the show with newly developed relationships from their sales and marketing departments, as well as a new fan and chrome truck parts.”
Hands On Demonstrations:
“It’s so nice to be able to test and try products with live demonstrations at the show. We’ve bought so many products online, and sometimes they work, and sometimes they don’t. At MATS, we are able to test out the capabilities of different products, and find the best fit for our shop and truck needs. We found tool boxes and a newer GPS system and were able to buy them on the spot at the show and bring them back to our operations.”
