Moreover, a training on optimizing digital marketing for Metrology Institutes and Standard bodies in the Middle East, executed on behalf of PTB Germany, is scheduled for August.
Virtual B2B Matching
For more than a decade, we have facilitated b2b matching through tradeshows and other business events. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, we have added virtual matching as an online and sustainable solution. It is a service that leading international tradeshows already offered over the last few years.
We make such online b2b matching service accessible to other organisations like associations, chambers of commerce that also run tradeshows and business matching events.
In the coming months, we will set-up a virtual matchmaking platform and event for 18 African countries as part of an EU sponsored programme.
Our virtual matching service includes:
- turn-key development of virtual matching platforms with databases of buyers and suppliers
- identification and profiling of interested buyers and suppliers
- warming up of leads
- preparation of meeting agendas
- facilitation of virtual business meetings
- coaching of suppliers on their promotion, presentation and pitch
- organization of webinar programs and virtual events around the matchmaking
- coaching of business support organisations to manage the matching platform
