Bilateral Meetings - How It Works


Short video explaining what a matchmaking event is all about. Made by our Austrian EEN colleagues at Steirische Wirtschaftsförderung SFG


The workflow in detail

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

Register online and submit your own cooperation profile.

In your profile you can state what kind of technology/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.

2) Selection of bilateral meetings

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".

Your personal meeting schedule can be viewed online or on the b2match app. The 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.

4) At the event

Our registration/information desk is located at the Meet&Match area.

Please make sure you have downloaded the app before the event, to have a realtime update of your schedule at hand.

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