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 and generate leads

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

    Leave your contact details by clicking the Share Contact Details button on their profile. This way you will be able to provide your email address, phone number (if you have added it to your profile) and send them a message.

    To see your leads, go to the Leads tab in your profile. You will see a list of all the people who left you their contact details. You are able to easily download all the data in an Excel file by clicking the button at the top right corner.
