Louisville Switching will not be exhibiting at the annual Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) this year.  We are taking a break this year to see how the show evolves with the changing landscape of truck shows. This year's show is scheduled for March 28-30, 2019 at the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC) located on 937 Phillips Lane in Louisville, Kentucky. We are honored to be a part of the trucking, logistics and warehousing industry.  

MATS is a 10-year trucking tradition where over 70,000 attendees come together to learn about the newest technologies, get hands-on demonstrations, and meet over 1,000 exhibitors across the United States. You can view the full list of exhibitors for this year's show here, representing 47 states and 13 countries from around the globe. It is beneficial for all attendees to meet and interact with a variety of vendors at the show to learn unique information from each of these trucking product experts. "Experience is Everything" with MATS and we want you to immerse yourself in all that this event has to offer about trucking. 

"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 North America. The first show occupied a portion of the West Wing of the original Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center." -MATS website, "About MATS" page
