Virtual - Qatar Matchmaking Event 2021

Virtual matchmaking events - 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 business profile to showcase your needs

    Create a clear and concise business profile to raise your visibility on the b2match platform.
    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. 

    5) Matchmaking Event

    Access your meetings in My Agenda, where you have your complete schedule for the event and the list of your meetings. Check your camera and microphone and don't be late!

    The virtual meetings take place through the b2match video tool, which is integrated in the b2match platform and it doesn’t need to/it can't be downloaded.
