Billings, Mont.– 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 their long-time vendors, The MATE Show & Home and Health Expo is unable to host the 2021 February Show.
Jennifer Boka, General Manager of NILE, expressed her gratitude for everyone who has taken part in the tradition saying “Your long-time support is essential to the success of this great event and we are already planning for 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.
The NILE Board of Directors, Staff, Volunteers and MATE Show vendors & sponsors, look forward to seeing everyone again soon. They thank the community of Eastern Montana and Northern Wyoming for their support of The MATE Show and NILE events. Keep watching for the possibility of NILE event in early summer.
