Prototyping MNE 2020 Matchmaking event

Matchmaking is an ideal opportunity to initiate promising contacts in pre-arranged meetings. 

People meet and greet at high speed. 30 minutes are usually enough to build connections, then the bell rings and the next meeting starts.

Step 1:


  • Registration for the matchmaking event is open until 6 February 2020.
  • Select the matchmaking sessions you wish to attend to. You will be able to book meetings in the matchmaking timeslots of your preference.
  • Insert your contact details and organisation description.
  • Publish your organisational focus and your collaboration wishes via the marketplace. The marketplace enables participants to list their offer and request items and to search for suitable partners by using these items. Your profile will not be validated if you have not listed your collaboration wishes via the marketplace. The better your profile the more interesting it gets for other participants.
  • The matchmaking event is free of charge. Register now! Registration with a full profile and marketplace description is mandatory to attend the brokerage event.

Step 2:

  • Meeting requests must be confirmed by both sides in order to be scheduled. Therefore please confirm or cancel meeting requests once you receive a notification of a new meeting request.

  • When accepting a meeting request you can choose the exact time when you wish to have the meeting within the matchmaking timeslots you selected during registration.
  • You receive your preliminary meeting schedule by email 1 week before the event. You can check your meeting schedule at all times online or in the b2Match app. Download the App for iPhone or Android.
