Registration, Booking Meetings & 1:1 Video Calls

A virtual matchmaking event is a quick and easy way to meet cooperation partners in short, pre-arranged, face-2-face talks. 15-20 minutes run fast but it is enough to build first connections before the clock signifies the end of the meeting and you can then log in to your next meeting.

Virtual B2B Meetings - How does it work?


1

Registration

  • Register via the green button "Register now" on the "Home" page.
  • Add your contact and organisation details as requested
  • Compose your personal event schedule by adding presentations and 1:1 meetings of your choice
  • Those interested in 1:1 meetings MUST select at least one networking session

2

Create a business profile to showcase your needs

  • Creating a strong company profile will raise your visibility to others on this booking platform, so make it clear and concise.
  • Your profile should describe who you are, what you can offer to potential buyers and partners and who you want to meet.
  • The better your profile, the more likely you will be accepted by buyers and other attendees for meetings.

Don't forget your profile will be live and visible even after the event.

3

Browse profiles of attendees and use the Marketplace

Find out who is offering interesting and promising business opportunities.

Use the Marketplace

  • Explain the product/project/technology/expertise you are offering or looking for
  • Specify the type of partner you are looking for
  • A meaningful profile will generate significantly more meeting requests

4

Send & receive meeting requests

  • 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
  • Add 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
  • The time of a meeting is scheduled by the person accepting the meeting request
  • 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.

TIP: Download the "b2match" mobile App (App Store) to manage your 1:1 meetings on your phone!

SOME PARTICIPANTS CAN’T BE BOOKED. WHY?

Participants available for meeting requests are indicated by a green button “Available”, otherwise:

  • You may not have registered for 1:1 meetings; make yourself available for the 1:1 session via Agenda
  • Booking rules applied by the event organizer may not allow you to book specific groups e.g. meetings can’t be set up between an “Other” and a “Buyer”

FAQs

How do I join a scheduled meeting?

  • You can access your meeting schedule via Menu "Meetings" in the top right corner.
  • Click the green button "Start meeting" next to your meetings to join the 1:1 meeting Video Call

What options do I have if the meeting partner does not show up on time?

  • Quick reminder to join the Video Call
    Send a message (or phone call) and alert your meeting partner to join the missed Video call.
    This should work well if enough time is left over (e.g. 15+ min) for this scheduled meeting.
  • Re-schedule the meeting
    In case your meeting partner doesn’t react immediately to a reminder, you should postpone and re-schedule the meeting in 1-2 hours.
  • If a meeting cannot be managed at the event date itself please use the messaging system (by opening the meeting partner’s profile) to schedule a phone call or meeting outside this platform
