Sicily Food Project

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. Registration
    Register and submit a collaboration profile describing your activities and business proposals.
  2. We promote your business profile
    Your profile will be published and promoted on this website and everyone has access to it before, during and after the event.
  3. Pre-arranging bilateral meetings (30 minutes per meetings)
    About three weeks before the event you can request meetings and will receive meeting requests
  4. Your personal meeting schedule
    All meeting requests will be scheduled by us. You will receive your personal schedule by email some days before the event and also at the event registration desk.


The workflow in detail

1) Online registration

Sicilian companies can register online and submit their cooperation profile.

In your profile you can state what kind of 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.
Why and how to write a meaningful cooperation 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 the booking of meetings starts. 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
Only Foreign Buyers will be able to book meetings! For more information see FAQ.

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 meetings the organizer needs to be sure that you will attend the event. Therefore please confirm or cancel your participation once you are asked to confirm.
Otherwise the event organizer has to inform all your meeting partners that meetings are/could be uncertain. This causes additional work and makes the event less reliable.

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