MATSO Meets – Advocacy:  Using Your MATSO Influence
Due to the effects of COVID-19 and the shutdown of B2B exhibitions in the U.S., the importance of advocacy has taken on a more urgent role with lawmakers at the federal, state and local levels. MATSO shows have a substantial economic impact on cities and states where shows are held, and the U.S. GDP. Hear from industry professionals from key cities who are involved in state and federal conversations and learn key ways to use your show’s impact to affect change on an ongoing basis as well as during legislative fly-ins.
