PORTLAND, Ore.—DAT Freight & Analytics, a supporter of the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville, Kentucky., is the exclusive sponsor of the Friday Night Concert at Freedom Hall, headlined country music star Clay Walker this year.
DAT will also have a major presence at the trucking show with live product demos and business workshops.
DAT will distribute 12,000 free tickets during show hours on Thursday, March 24, and Friday, March 25, at the company’s booth, No. 65216, in the West Wing of the Kentucky Exposition Center.
Attendees will have the chance to win a Clay Walker-signed Taylor acoustic guitar, which will be on display at the DAT booth and presented to the winner on stage at the concert.
“With Clay, we’re going to celebrate the trucking community and the return of the industry’s premier truck show,” Claude Pumilia, DAT President and CEO, said. “DAT invites all show attendees to sign up for free tickets at our booth and join us at Freedom Hall for a party with one of the music industry’s greatest Country artists.”
