Daimler will skip MATS in 2016

| 5/13/2015

Daimler Trucks North America will not attend the Mid-America Trucking Show in 2016. Dave Giroux, head of corporate communications and public relations, confirmed this week that DTNA intends to return to the MATS in 2017 and attend the show every other year thereafter. 

The show is the largest annual heavy-duty trucking event in the world. It’s held every spring at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center in Louisville.

Giroux stated by email to Land Line that DTNA expects to engage in an ongoing dialogue with MATS show management and industry leaders to discuss how to further supplement the show with additional activities for the collective benefit of original equipment manufacturers, suppliers and customers.

DTNA is the parent company of Freightliner and Western Star trucks and Detroit Diesel.
