At a matchmaking event people meet and greet at high speed. Bilateral meetings take usually 20 or 30 minutes, which is usually enough to forge business, research or technological connections. Then the bell rings and the next meeting starts.
Each participant registers with a co-operation profile which will be displayed at the event website. Each participant can select meetings with other participants they would like to personally talk to online. A few days before the event, each participant will receive a meeting schedule, showing WHO they will meet, WHEN and WHERE.
What are the benefits of participating in the matchmaking event?
All participants can present their expertise, projects or technologies online BEFORE the event. The co-operation profiles will be extensively promoted. Participants can contact each other before the event and know exactly who they will meet on the day. A matchmaking event therefore presents a very efficient and focused way of finding new collaboration partners.
Click on the green button "Register" on the startpage to start the registration process.
The Participant is the person who will participate in the matchmaking event and who is responsible for the inserted profiles.
Participants should indicate their contact details (especially e-mail and mobile phone number) to be directly informed about registration, agendas or changes in the event set-up.
"Support Office" is usually the Enterprise Europe Network office in your region that support companies doing international business free of charge. If your region is not listed in the drop-down menu, please select "Other".
You can choose a password during the registration process.
Click on the Login button where you will find a "Forgot password?" link; the system will generate an email with further instructions.
N.B. The registration emails contain an "Autologin Link". Via this link you can directly sign-in to your personal dashboard without having to re-enter your email address and password.
How to change the password?
Please log in with your Autologin link (you will find it in the email you received after your registration) and go to Change Password.
Yes, it is. Every participant can insert several profiles. Please note that profiles are associated with participants.
The same organisation can be registered several times with different participants (contact person).
Yes, it is. Log in via the login button or the autologin link you have received with your registration email.
In your personal dashboard you can use the tabs to modify any of the content you have already inserted.
When will my profile be available online?
Every profile will be quality checked by the event organiser.
If it meets the quality criteria it will be published, if not, you will be contacted by the event organiser to adapt your profile.
Booking is opened about 2-3 weeks before the event after most of the participants have registered.
You will be informed by email when booking starts.
Yes, of course.
In case this event is operated in Opt-Out booking mode (meeting requests are by default accepeted, but can be rejected) - What is the reason for this?
Experiences have shown that less than 10% of the meeting requests are usually rejected. Therefore the booking mode "Opt-Out" keeps the burdon low for the majority (90%) of participants, by not asking them to confirm a request they are going to accept anyway. Results: less email traffic; fewer meeting requests waiting for approval.
Please inform the event organiser immediately.
If you have booked meetings or you have been booked for meetings, please get directly in contact with your meeting partners and tell them that you cannot keep the appointment.
