Happy Thursday Trucking Nation!
This is a very special day – it is the official kick off of the 43rd Annual Mid-America Trucking Show. ExpressTruckTax, with sister products TSNA
and (launching today) TruckLogics
, have the proud honor of representing the best online services for truckers and trucking companies at the show.
Now, no Thursday would be complete without a proper throwback and we are going to do it Mid-America style – all the way back to 1972…
The Mid-America Trucking Show began in the early 1970’s, when a private management group was formed by Paul K. Young, to create the largest and most diversified trucking show in the United States of America. The first Mid-America Trucking Show was held in 1972 with 83 Exhibitors and 4000 visitors in attendance. The show occupied a portion of the West Wing of the original Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center
|The 1st Mid America Trucking Show in 1972
From it’s humble beginnings in 1972 the Mid-America Trucking Show has grown to be the largest annual heavy-duty trucking event in the world. MATS is more than a trade show. It is the annual forum for the heavy-duty trucking industry, providing face-to-face interaction between industry representatives and trucking professionals. Attendees can network with Fortune 500 companies and media outlets from around the world go to MATS to report on the business of trucking, and where trucking business gets done.
ExpressTruckTax will be at the show through the 29th. If you are going to MATS, make a pit stop by our booth # 72144 we love meeting our customers in person and getting great feedback. Stay tuned for more on the Mid America Trucking Show and follow our Facebook: ExpressTruckTax and Twitter: @expresstrucktax for updates throughout the show.
