Matchmaking Meetings - How do they work?


A matchmaking event is a quick and easy way to meet potential cooperation partners. 20 minutes run fast, but they are enough to build first connections before the meeting ends and the next talk starts.


1) Registration

Register via the Register button.


    2) Publish a profile to showcase your needs

    Create a clear and concise profile to raise your visibility on the website.
    Your profile should describe who you are, what you can offer to potential partners, and who you want to meet. A good profile will generate significantly more meeting requests. 


    3) Browse profiles of attendees

    Go to the participants list to find out who is offering interesting and promising business opportunities.


    4) Send & receive meeting requests

    Browse published participants profiles and send meeting requests to those you want to meet during the event. Please accept or reject the meeting requests.


    5) Matchmaking Meeting at the Food & Bio Global Summit

    Access your meetings in My Agenda or Meetings, where you have your complete schedule for the event and the list of your meetings stating the time and table for the meeting. Bring the schedule to the event.

    At event please go to the information desk about 5 minutes before your first meeting and register. Then in due time go to the stated table and start your meeting.
