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.

Calendar of Events

In an effort to address opportunities within the major American trade show community, those with shows of 200,000 NSF or larger, IAEE holds bi-monthly MATSO Meets on the last Wednesday of the designated month at 2:00 PM CT/3:00 PM ET via Zoom unless otherwise noted. MATSO also holds in-person events throughout the year.
