How does it work? - Booking of meetings & 1:1 video calls

All sessions (conference programm and b2b-meetings) can be accessed via B2Match. Please find further information on the matchmaking tool below.

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

1:1 meetings | Facts

  • Until 12 May 2021 1:1 meetings can be requested
  • Meeting requests must be accepted to be scheduled
  • Meetings are managed online via 1:1 video calls

1:1 video calls | Technical preparations

  • Use a desktop computer or laptop where both webcam and microphone are installed
  • Double check if you have selected a proper time-zone (see menu: Edit my Profile)
  • 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 preferably
  • Internet Edge Browser only works for Version IDs 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 in your browser. You should see yourself!
  • 1:1 video call meetings can NOT be managed via the b2match Mobile App

1) Online registration


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

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 such as company background, business offers and interests you provide, the more you will benefit from the 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
  • With its filtering option the "Market Place" makes it easier to find interesting profiles
  • A meaningful profile will generate significantly more meeting requests

3) How to manage bilateral meetings?

The booking of meetings opens on Tuesday, 16 March 2021.


  • 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
  • Meeting requests must be confirmed by the recipients to be scheduled
  • 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.
  • No common overlapping networking sessions
    Please sign-up for some further networking session via Agenda, or agree on another time slot for the meeting via the messaging function.

4) Short before and during the event


  • You can view date/time of your meetings via the Menu “Meetings” at any time
  • Check all your pending meeting requests and consider accepting or decline
  • Download the "b2match" Mobile App (iOS/Android) to
    * get access to your meeting schedule on your mobile phone
    * be informed about last-minute changes (bookings, cancellations)
    * manage additional meetings during the event (send/receive/confirm requests)


  • Check again the latest version of your meeting schedule through the platform. Due to last minute changes it might have changed slightly.
  • Access the web platform and be online at least 5-10 minutes before your meetings start.
  • RESPECT the other participants' time and show up to all of 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.


How do I join a scheduled meeting?

  • You can access your meeting schedule via menu "Meetings" in the top right corner.
  • Click the green button "Start meeting" next to your meetings to join the 1:1 meeting video call

What options do I have if the meeting partner does not show up timely?

  • Quick reminder to join the video call
    Send a message (or phone call) and alert your meeting partner to join the missed Video call.
    This should work well if enough time is left over (e.g. 15+ min) for this scheduled meeting.
  • Re-schedule the meeting
    In case your meeting partner doesn’t react immediately on a reminder as indicated above you should re-schedule and postpone the meeting by 1-2 hours.
  • If a meeting can not be managed at the event date itself please use the chat messaging system (open the meeting partners profile) to schedule a phone call or meeting outside this platform

What if my camera or microphone does not work?
