Why Hold an Event at MATS?
Room rental and production costs are reasonable and in some cases can be shared with other event partners. For corporate press events, we cover the room rental and basic setup. In addition, we have relationships with pre-approved vendors and resources that help minimize expenses and ease the planning process.
Free Event Promotion
MATS supports partner events with free, multi-channel promotion to past and current MATS registrants through email, truckingshow.com, social media, and industry media coverage. MATS facilitates direct promotion to industry associations and trucking professionals already scheduled to attend and provides direct access to pre-registered media contacts.
87.3% of MATS attendees participate in the Mid-America Trucking Show to inform their purchasing decisions and improve their businesses. Special events position you as a trusted source of information and industry thought leader, while providing direct engagement with your target audience.
