A matchmaking event is a quick and easy way to meet potential cooperation partners. People meet and greet at high speed. 25 minutes are usually enough to build connections, then the bell rings and the next talk starts.


The workflow in detail

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 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 spend some minutes to insert a high quality and meaningfull profile.

2) Promotion of published profiles

All published profiles will be extensively promoted by the organisers of this event. Furthermore, all participants of the event will view your cooperation profile. 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.

3) Selection of bilateral meetings

Email notification
You will be informed by email when you can start booking bilateral meetings. Check which cooperation profiles 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 of bilateral meetings
Once you have found the most promising business partners you can select them for bilateral meetings. Your meeting request will be accepted or rejected by participants. You can add further meetings any time but please be aware that the bookings are managed on the principle "first come - first served". You can book meetings BUT you can also be booked for bilateral talks by other participants!

Your personal meeting schedule
A few days before the event you will receive your personal meeting schedule (furthermore you can constantly check your meeting schedule online). This meeting schedule gives information about the time, the number of the table and who you are going to meet.

Confirm your participation
In case you have booked meetings, please note that you must commit to attend them. To guarantee the proper development of the matchmaking, Business Beyond Borders has a strict no-show policy and reserves the right to charge a fee of up to €250 in the case of un-announced absence.

To remind you of this process, a week before the event an email will be sent to all participants. Please use this occasion to confirm or cancel your attendance. Out of respect for other companies at the event, we are confident in your collaboration and we thank you for your cooperation.

In case of questions feel free to contact us. Our staff will be at your disposal before the event and during the matchmaking sessions.
