Virtual Matchmaking and Appointment Setting at TechNet Europe for B2B, B2G and G2G meetings

In this new virtual world, getting appointments with those that you really need to speak with has sometimes been and will remain challenging. With the majority of the world working from home right now and with partial teleworking being likely here to stay, it can be hard to reach your usual and especially new contacts. Since we are confident that many relevant parties will sign up for conferences but will not be able to travel for various reasons, we therefore decided to offer a new virtual meeting service and matchmaking platform, to start during TechNet Europe 2021.

How does it work?

First, you must register to attend TechNet Europe.

During registration, select “yes” that you want to take part in the matchmaking. You will then receive an invitation to create your matchmaking account and to complete your profile. Please do so ASAP. As people will begin to complete their profiles, you will be able to browse profiles and you will start to receive some matches. The more information you provide, the better your matches will be. 
We will then open the matchmaking platform for appointment booking before the event, on 17 May. You can then view your best proposed matches (which are generated using AI technology), browse profiles and finally, request, accept and/or decline appointments. You can create filters and preferences, see who has viewed your profile, chat with potential contacts to ask more questions before deciding if you want to request or accept an appointment with them, record meetings and screen share during a meeting, take notes and rate meetings. In full GDPR compliance, your contact data will never be shared, even after you have confirmed an appointment.

During the event, you will meet your contacts in virtual meeting rooms, especially generated for each one of your meetings.

Special Incentive for Military and Government attendees

If you are a military or government attendee and participate in at least three matchmaking meetings, you will receive a complimentary registration to a future AFCEA Europe event.

Be sure to register to attend TechNet Europe ASAP. Only 50 more conference attendees may still register to take part in the matchmaking. First-come, first-served.
