Matchmaking sessions - How do they work?


A matchmaking event is an efficient and easy way to meet potential business and collaboration partners. They are facilitated by means of this platform. As a participant you need to be pro-active in requesting and scheduling meetings. 

Make sure that you have signed up for the matchmaking sessions or otherwise add them to your agenda.

Each scheduled meeting only lasts 15 minutes but they are often enough to build first connections before the meeting ends and the next one starts. There is ample time and possibilities to continue networking and explore collaboration opportunities during drinks and dinner.


    1) Set up and complete your profile to showcase your needs and offers

    Create a clear and concise profile to raise your visibility on the b2match platform.
    Your profile should describe who you are, what you can offer to potential partners, and what you are looking for. A good profile will generate significantly more meeting requests. Make sure to add your offers and requests on the Marketplace.


    2) Browse profiles and marketplace opportunities of attendees

    Go to the participants list to find out who is offering interesting and promising business and collaboration opportunities. Check out the online Marketplace to see what the other participants are offering and looking for. 


    3) Request and schedule meetings - September 19 - October 7

    Browse published participants profiles and send meeting requests to those you want to meet during the event. 


    4) Matchmaking sessions - October 6 & 7

    About 1-2 days before the event you will receive an email with your detailed meeting schedule. A hard copy version will also be handed out during the event.
