A matchmaking event is a quick and easy way to meet potential partners. People meet and greet at high speed and 15 minutes is usually enough to build a connection before the bell rings and the next meeting starts.
How it Works...
1) Online registration
Register online and submit your own cooperation profile.
In your profile you can state what kind of technology/product/expertise you are offering, what kind of cooperation you are looking for and which ideas you would like to discuss with potential collaboration partners.
All cooperation profiles will be published online and will be available for everyone to see. You can change your profile any time.
Note: The better the quality of your profile the more meeting requests you will receive. Your business proposal is your business card, therefore please invest a little time in creating a high quality and meaningful profile.
2) Promotion of published profiles
All published profiles will be extensively promoted by the organisers of this event and all participants will be able to view your cooperation profile. A statistical analysis of 40 matchmaking events showed that high quality profiles are visited between 50 and 150 times BEFORE the event and will still be viewed AFTER the event.
3) Selection of meetings
Email notification You will be informed by email when you can start booking meetings. Check which cooperation profiles are the most promising for you. Intelligent search options allow a quick identification of the most suitable participants/cooperation profiles. Within a few minutes you should be able to identify future potential business partners.
Booking of meetings Once you have found the most promising business partners you can select them for meetings. You can add further meetings at any time but please be aware that the bookings are managed on a "first come - first served basis".
You can book meetings and other people can request meetings with you.
Your personal meeting schedule A few days before the event you will receive your personal meeting schedule which can also be checked online. This meeting schedule gives information about the time, the number of the table and who you are going to meet.
4) At the event
At the brokerage registration desk, you will receive an updated meeting schedule including any last minute bookings. Your personal meeting schedule will list the participant details and table number for each meeting in chronological order.
In the brokerage room, each table will be numbered, allowing you to easily find the location of your meeting. The 15-minute time slots will be managed appropriately to allow participants to move on to the next meeting at the end of the 15-minutes. You will be given a 5 and 2 minute warning prior to the end of your 15 minutes to allow you time to wrap up your meeting, remember, you can always continue your conversation at a later date by exchanging your contact details on the day.
Our team will be available during the matchmaking event to provide assistance as required.
