How Prepared Are You For The 2019 MATS

TruckLogics is on the road again and taking on the 2019 MATS! With help from ExpressAmber the team of representatives for ExpressTruckTax and TruckLogics has been getting into shape to make the most of the largest annual heavy-duty trucking industry event, Thursday, March 28 - Saturday, March 30, 2019.

Over 71, 300 truck enthusiasts from all across the world will be in one area for 3 days to network, get informed, and gain some awesome freebies all while having a little fun. We want to see you there and make sure you take advantage of all the things this event has to offer.
MATS Booths
What better way to prepare than getting MATS tips from a couple of veterans? The team headed to Louisville, Kentucky is quite familiar with how MATS tends to go. With roughly 6 years of experience the group has learned from past year mistakes and successes. Here are a few things that will ensure your trip goes off without a hitch, unless you’re into those kinds of things.

Be Present

It is easy to coil into ourselves and fail to be present in situations where we feel as though we know no one, but it is important at events like MATS to be an extrovert for the weekend. MATS is a great networking opportunity for all in the industry, not just big corporations with their logos plastered all over the place. Put your phone away and connect face-to-face with leaders in the industry. Partnerships and new career opportunities happen all the time when leaders in the same industry are together. Authentic relationships and conversations can go a long way.

Don't Be 'That Guy'

Any company that has a booth, more than likely have free incentives to get you over to their table. If you are drawn to the table because of what they are offering, be courteous enough to listen to what booth representatives have to say. If not for yourself get the beneficial knowledge for someone you know. We’re not saying become one of their subscribers or purchase the most expensive thing in their catalog, but just suggest lending your ear for a brief 5 to 10 minutes. We don’t want you to be the one lugging around a huge bag of free stuff only searching through the crowd for your next gift. 

Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory

Explore The City

Louisville is a city full of rich history, so schedule your trip to include a day or several days to visit some of its unique attractions like the Louisville Slugger Museum. The city also offers an amazing discount program for visitors in town for conferences, conventions and showcases. The Show Us Your Badge discounts range from restaurant deals, awesome attraction rates and even discounted purchases at some of the cities well known establishments. If your schedule doesn’t allow for you to partake in the discounted fun, plan ahead and stay an extra day, or make your voyage to Kentucky a day early. You can find a list of over 20 participating locations on the Louisville, Kentucky travel site.

Be On The Lookout For TruckLogics

The TruckLogics team will be walking around MATS being the center of attention in some pretty show stopping attire. Be sure to stop them and say hello. Get a few selfies in and be sure to tag the TruckLogics social media handles. The team is pumped to see everyone there. This years MATS is going to be one to remember!
