The 50th Anniversary Mid-America Trucking Show has been postponed, again, but organizers promise “it will be worth the wait.”
“The primary goal of the Mid-America Trucking Show has always been to bring the entire industry together for the largest and most comprehensive, face-to-face event in trucking,” President Toby Young said. “With this goal in mind, MATS 50th has been scheduled for March 24-26, 2022. These dates ensure the full support of our industry at an uncompromised, large-scale, in-person event that meets our shared goals and delivers the caliber of show that we have all come to expect from MATS.”
After calling off the March event due to COVID-19 concerns for the second consecutive year, Young had also considered a fall show before deciding to go with the 2022 dates.
For MATS 50th, organizers are developing new in-person experiences that will further engage attendees and provide exhibitors more opportunities to directly connect with their audience. The MATS Experience will feature more education, exhibits, events, and entertainment than ever before. Currently in the works:
- Opening Night Celebration & Networking Event
- Expanded Education, Product Demos, and Speaking Opportunities
- Larger-than-Ever PKY Truck Beauty Championship
- More Outdoor Events and Entertainment
- Interactive MATS History Experiences
“We are excited to have firm dates for the 50th Anniversary of MATS and look forward to working alongside our industry friends and family,” Young said.
