Why Do You Attend MATS?

“Everything you can do in this industry, every part of this industry, no matter what your job title…every part of the industry is here at MATS. It’s incredible the amount of information that you can learn.”

Why Do You Recommend MATS?

“There’s not another show in the country where you can have that much access to not just competitors, but government officials. There’s nowhere else where you can conduct business and get your questions answered.”

“Everybody at MATS is so helpful and willing to talk to you to find needs for your business. Keep your ears open and your mouth closed, because you really learn so much here.”

Educational Seminars:

“Back in 2009, the 2010 CSA information came out and we had to learn all about it within a year. DOT had a seminar about CSA that provided great information that let me know my business was on the right path to success. You just don’t get that information elsewhere.”

Buying Products:

“At MATS, I can talk to sales people about equipment we are buying and get real time answers. I can talk to recruiters about products I want to learn more about. You can find products that you didn’t even know existed beforehand.”

More Attendee Spotlights

“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.”
“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.”
“MATS provides an open forum where I can actually test out and see products live and in-person. I am able to research and make purchase decisions here that I know will directly improve my business.”
