MATSO Events

IAEE’s MATSO Council will identify topics relevant to the major trade show organizer that are timely and represent common interests and challenges to the MATSO audience. Central to the MATSO Council culture is ensuring a wide-open exchange of ideas to foster discovering solutions, networking with other senior-level show professionals, guiding new strategies and policies, sharing ideas and making a difference. Each year a MATSO event will be selected to host IAEE-MATSO programming. In addition, programming will take place through webinars and at Expo! Expo! IAEE’s Annual Meeting & Exhibition. A complete schedule of events will be updated as they are identified.
