Facts about MATRA
MATRA was started back in 1987 as a result of a few rental companies and area vendors that desired to build a stronger relationship in the tenting industry while helping to educate rental owners about safety and new products. Since then, MATRA has continued to present area trade shows and educational conferences where the knowledge of tenting is in the forefront.
Manufacturers and Tent Renters Association, Inc (previously Mid-Atlantic Tent Renters Association Inc.) is dedicated to promoting the tent rental industry in the Mid-Atlantic Region and beyond. Our mission is to assist our rental company members in education, safety, and product knowledge.
Our vendor members include worldwide tent manufacturers and suppliers to the rental industry.
