The Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) is the largest annual heavy-duty trucking industry event in the world. Held each year at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville, KY, the show attracts 70,000+ attendees and 1,000+ exhibitors from throughout the United States and abroad.
The Mid-America Trucking Show
“No other show offers more under one roof than the annual Mid-America Trucking Show.”
The team can’t wait to head to the Bluegrass State to mingle with fellow industry elite, current clients, and friends March 26-28. The event will serve as a prime opportunity to celebrate the great strides our newest venture, AllTruckJobs.com has made in its short span of time since launching back in August. We already have catapulted into the spot as the arguably best job board in the CDL-driver niche. MATs is going to be an awesome way to celebrate ATJ’s success. In just a few months, we have helped thousands of drivers and over 100+ trucking companies find employment solutions.
MATS started back in the 1970s with the first expo housing 83 exhibitors and 4,000 guests. Fast forward to 2012 and there were well over 1000+ trucking companies in attendance with nearly 90,000 guests. In 2015, the Track5 crew is proud to announce we will be there, too!
Right around when we launched in August, All Truck Jobs set up a booth at the Great American Trucking Show (GATS) in Dallas, TX. As the newest kid on the block, we used the convention as a way to promote ourselves, get an insider’s look at the industry, network, and just have a good time. I have to say though, the entire show was an awe-inspiring experience. Interacting with the thousands of eclectic folks there was a total blast. The Mid-America Trucking show is more than twice as large as GATS!
