Business meetings: how a partnering event works?

A matchmaking event is a quick and easy way to meet potential cooperation partners !

People meet and greet at high speed. 20 minutes are usually enough to build connections, then the bell rings and the next talk starts.

5 steps for optimising return on investment of your business meetings :


  1. Registration | until 3rd March 2019

If you have a b2match account, you can log in directly by clicking on “Login” on the top. If not, click on the button “Register now” and fill in your email address, name and surname, and password.

Then, complete your type of participation and your attendance. Your meetings will be organised according to your availabilities. After that, complete your personal and organisation information, write detailed information about your organisation, and select relevant key words regarding your areas of activity.

You will receive an email, notifying that you are registered and that your profile is validated and public.

 2. Complete your profile | until 3rd March 2019

Create a strong and clear profile in the Marketplace, which will raise your visibility to others on this platform. Your profile should describe your product, service or expertise you can offer potential partners ; your cooperation project and partner search ; or specific requests. You will receive an email, notifying that you are registered.

Your profile is your business card, therefore make sure to insert a high quality and meaningfull profile to generate more meetings. Don't forget your profile will be live and visible even after the event.

NOTE: to participate in the business meetings, it is recommanded to register and set up your profile until 1st March, in order to have time to book meetings until 5th March.

3. Booking of meetings | 1th February - 4th March 2019 (18:00)

You will receive an e-mail when you can start booking your meetings (1th February):

Browse published participants profiles and check which cooperation profiles are the most interesting for you. Use different kind of filters to make a quick identification. Send meeting requests to those you want to meet. Adding a meaningful remark why you are interested in a meeting will increase the chance that your request will be accepted.

You will be asked to accept or reject meeting requests. You can choose a time-slot when accepting a meeting and know immediately when it will take place

About 1-2 days before the event you will receive an email with your detailed meeting schedule.
