3) How to manage bilateral meetings?

The booking of meetings opens three weeks before the event or after a certain number of participants have registered. You will be notified by an e-mail alert once booking has opened.

 

BOOKING 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.

  • 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
