B2B Meetings - How does it work?

A matchmaking event is a quick and easy way to meet potential cooperation partners in face-2-face talks. 20 minutes run fast but usually it is enough to build first connections, then the bell rings and the next talk 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.


Setup and customise your profile

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.

Please be aware that only complete profiles with at least one marketplace item (e.g. a collaboration opportunity) will be validated in the first phase and thus fully benefit by being visible and able to book meetings with participants at an early stage.


Browse profiles of attendees

Please scan the profiles of registered participants and organisations to identify potential project partners. Browse the participants list.


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!
