The MATE Show in Billings, Mont. Canceled for 2021

December 18, 2020

The NILE Organization, owner and host of The Montana Agri-Trade Exhibition, also known as The MATE Show & Home and Health Expo, is a 45-year long tradition in Billings, MT. Based on the current COVID restrictions, considering community health and return on investment to our long-time vendors, The MATE Show & Home and Health Expo is unable to host the 2021 February Show.

Jennifer Boka is the NILE general manger and says although they're disappointed in having to cancel the 2021 MATE Show, they'll be back stronger than ever in 2022. 

In the past 44 years, The MATE Show has grown to over 600 booths and over 18,000 attendees per year. Since its inception in 1975, The MATE Show has brought a total of nearly 450,000 visitors to the city of Billings, with an economic impact of over 3 million dollars annually.
