How does it work?

A matchmaking or networking event is a quick and easy way to meet potential cooperation partners in face-2-face talks. 15-20 minutes run fast but it is enough to build first connections before the bell rings and the next talk starts.


1) Online registration

  • Register via the green button "Register now".
  • Add contact and organisation details as requested.
  • You must select the network session in order to participate in the 1:1 meetings.

2) Make yourself visible through an outstanding business profile

COMPANY PROFILE

Take advantage of the opportunity and introduce your company by publishing a clear profile. The more detail, such as company background, business offers and interests you provide, the more you will benefit from the matchmaking. Your co-operation profile is your online business card.

MARKET PLACE

  • Explain the product/project/technology/expertise you are offering or looking for.
  • Specify the type of partner you are looking for.
  • Published profiles will be extensively promoted by the organizers of the event.
  • High-quality profiles are visited 50 to 100 times before, during and even after the event.
  • A meaningful profile will generate significantly more meeting requests.


3) How to manage bilateral meetings?

The booking of meetings opens a few weeks before the event or after a certain number of participants have registered. You will be notified by an e-mail alert once booking has opened.

 

BOOKING MEETINGS

  • Browse the list of attendees or check the marketplace profiles.
  • Use the optional filters to easily find the ones aligned with your goals.
  • Send meeting requests to those companies/persons you want to meet.
  • Adding a short reason why you are interested in a meeting will increase the acceptance.
  • Meeting requests must be confirmed by the recipients to be scheduled.
  • Date and time of a meeting will be scheduled by the person accepting the meeting request considering the mutual availability.
  • Check every incoming meeting request and accept or refuse if not appropriate. It is a matter of politeness to let the requester know if you are interested in a meeting or not.
