B2B Meetings & Video Calls - How does it work?

A matchmaking or networking event is a quick and easy way to meet potential cooperation partners in face-2-face talks. 20-30 minutes run fast but it is enough to build first connections before the bell rings and the next talk starts.

1) Online registration


  • Register via the green button "Register now"
  • Add contact and organisation details as requested
  • Compose your personal event schedule by adding the conference sessions and b2b sessions of your choice
  • Those who are interested to manage 1:1 meetings MUST select at least one networking/b2b session

Interested in establishing new business contacts through 1:1 meetings? Please read more below.

2) Make yourself visible through an outstanding business profile


Take advantage of the opportunity and introduce your company by publishing a clear profile. The more detail like company background, business offers and interests you provide, the more you will benefit from the conference matchmaking tool. Your co-operation profile is your online business card.


  • Explain the product/project/technology/expertise you are offering or looking for
  • Specify the type of partner you are looking for
  • Published profiles will be extensively promoted by the organizers of the event
  • High-quality profiles are visited 50 to 100 times before, during and even after the event
  • A meaningful profile will generate significantly more meeting requests

3) How to manage bilateral meetings?


  • Browse the list of attendees or check the marketplace profiles
  • Use the optional filters to easily find the ones aligned with your goals
  • Send meeting requests to those companies/persons you want to meet
  • Adding a short reason why you are interested in a meeting will increase the acceptance
  • Usually meeting requests must be confirmed by the recipients to be scheduled
  • Typically, date and time of a meeting is scheduled by the person accepting the meeting request considering the mutual availability.
  • Check every incoming meeting request and accept or refuse if not appropriate. It is a matter of politeness to let the requester know if you are interested in a meeting or not.


Participants available for meeting requests are indicated by a green button “Available”, otherwise:

  • You may not have registered for 1:1 meetings
    please make yourself available for 1:1 networking session via Agenda / Event Agenda (or “My Attendance” for events still using an old version)
  • Booking rules applied by the event organizer doesn’t allow to book specific groups
    e.g. No meetings among Sellers & Sellers; Start-ups can’t send meetings requests to Investors
  • No common overlapping networking sessions
    Please sign-up for some further networking session via Agenda / Event Agenda

5) Short before and during the event


  • Use a desktop computer or laptop where both Webcam and Microphone is installed
    * Check your audio quality, using headphones is highly advised
    * Use a good webcam to improve the image quality
  • Video call meetings can NOT be managed via the b2match Mobile App
  • Check your time-zone
    Log-in and select "Edit my profile" to check your current time zone selection. If this is not the time zone you are located during the meetings please change accordingly.
  • Use Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Opera browser prferably
  • Internet Edge Browser only works for Versions ID 80+ (Chromium edition)
  • To make sure that everything is set correctly, please go to your "Meetings" and click on the green camera button "Meeting starts in ..." - this will open the video call feature of your browser. You should be able to see yourself!


  • Check again the latest version of your meeting schedule through the platform. Due to last minute changes it might have changed slightly.
  • RESPECT the other participants' time and show up to all your meetings.
  • If an unforeseen circumstance arises and you will not attend a meeting, please cancel your meetings through the platform. This way, the other participant will be notified.
