IAEE MATSO Council Charge

The MATSO Council is comprised of not-for-profit association and for-profit exhibition organizers whose shows are at least 200,000 NSF of exhibition space. The focus of the MATSO Council is on all functional aspects of large show production: marketing and sales, legislation, labor, international challenges, and operations. The MATSO Council encourages conversations of members fitting the criteria. The MATSO Council will provide a forum to support in-depth problem solving in a competition-free environment based on a foundation of confidentiality and trust.

The MATSO Council abides by the IAEE Bylaws. Article IX outlines the Council’s authority, including electing a chair to serve on the IAEE board of directors. The chair of the Council will present reports to the IAEE board directors at its meetings. The Council will abide by the IAEE Antitrust Policy.
