F2F brokerage event Proposers' Day 2014

How It 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.


1. Online registration

The registration for the Face2Face Meetings is only possible via the Proposers' Day conference page

Why? Because in the past a lot of participants have registered only on the Face2Face Meetings page and not on the conference page. As the Face2Face Meetings are a part of the Proposers' Day conference, please accept this procedure. 

How to do that: 

  1. First register on the conference page and afterwards you will get the link to the registration form for the Face2Face Meetings. 
  2. Log in on the conference page and click on "My Events". Here you have access to the registration form of the Face2Face Meetings as well. 

Register now only online for the Face2Face Meetings and submit your own cooperation profile(s).

In your profile you can state what kind of project ideas/expertise/innovations you are offering or what kind of innovations yout are looking for.

All cooperation profiles will be published online and will be for everyone to see. You can change your profile any time.


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. 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.


4. At the event

At the registration desk, you will receive an updated version of your meeting schedule including last minute bookings. Your personal meeting schedule lists in chronological order for each meeting the

  • names of your conversation partners
  • number of table for each meeting

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