A matchmaking event is a quick and easy way to meet potential cooperation partners.
People meet and greet at high speed. 30 minutes are usually enough to build connections, then the bell rings and the next meeting starts.

 

The workflow in detail

1) Online registration

Register online and submit your 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 for seen by everyone. 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 and your pitch, please spend a few minutes to enter a high quality and efficient profile.

2) Promotion of published profiles

All participants of the event will view your cooperation profile. All published profiles will be extensively promoted by the organizers. A statistical analysis of 40 matchmaking events showed that high quality profiles are visited about 50 to 150 times before the event and will still be viewed after the event. This is especially important if you are staying over for the CES show.

3) Selection of bilateral meetings

Email notification
You will receive an email when your meeting selection period starts. Check which cooperation profiles that are most promising. 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
Once you have found the most promising potential business partners, you will be able to select them for one on one meetings. You can add further meetings any time on a "first come - first served” basis. Please prepare to be be booked for one on one talks by other participants. For more information see FAQ.

Your personal meeting schedule
A few days before the event you will receive your personal meeting schedule. Your meeting schedule will also be available online. This meeting schedule gives information about the exact meeting time, the table number and the person(s) who you are going to meet.

Re-Confirm your participation
Please re-confirm your participation when asked via email, as we want to avoid no shows for the benefit of your selected meeting parties.

 

4) At the event

 

At the registration desk, you will receive an updated version of your meeting schedule, including last minute bookings. Your meeting schedule lists the following:
  • The exact time of your meetings
  • The names (with company names) of the persons you will meet
  • The table number for each meeting

Our staff will be at your disposal during the whole matchmaking event.
