Match & Meet is a platform that matches suppliers and potential customers based on their customized profiles, and helps them get in touch. It’s easy to initiate contacts with potential business partners before a trade show begins, which can then be pursued face-to-face at the event.
Match & Meet is a valuable tool for both exhibitors and visitors (potential customers). The service can help anyone who is looking for new business, network partners, information sources or investors – because personal contact is the basis for business success.
