Inside the Exhibit Halls
Experience is Everything
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.
