B2B Meetings - How it works

A matchmaking event is a quick and easy way to meet potential collaboration partners in face-2-face meetings. These 15 minute meetings go by quickly but are usually enough time to build initial connections. Then the bell rings and the next meeting starts.



  • Register via the green Registration button on the "Home" page
  • Do you want to publish your offers or needs and manage B2B meetings on-site? If yes, read more below.


Publish a business profile to showcase your needs

Create a strong profile which will raise your visibility to others on this platform. Make it clear and concise.
Your profile should describe who you are, what you can offer to potential partners and who you want to meet.
A good profile will significantly generate more meetings. Don't forget your profile will be live and visible even after the event.


Browse profiles of attendees

Find out who is offering interesting and promising business/research opportunities


Send & receive meeting requests

Be active not reactive. Browse published participants profiles and send meeting requests to those you want to meet at the event. Adding a meaningful remark why you are interested in a meeting will increase the chance that your request will be accepted. Accepted meeting requests will be scheduled automatically.
TIP: Download the "b2match" mobile App (App Store) to manage your 1:1 meetings on your phone!
