I never miss MATS. After a dozen years, the reasons for attending MATS have evolved. At first, it was for the big name concert acts, then the latest innovations, and the glitz and glamour of the lights and chrome of the show trucks. But after all this time, it’s now the place to rekindle the friendships of the people we’ve met through the years…The people that we only cross paths with at this show. I like visiting the multitude of smaller booths in the West Wing, where you can find an actual driver hawking a product that he’s put his heart and soul into.
