What is a virtual B2B meeting ?
A B2B meeting, or matchmaking event, allows you to meet directly potential partners. The particularity of Enterprise Europe Network matchmaking events is that the profiles are checked and the meetings are bilaterally validated. 30 minutes is usually enough to build connections before the bell rings and the next talk starts according to your schedule.
In the light of recent circumstances, the B2B meetings will be 100% online. A virtual B2B meetings is a quick and easy way to meet potential cooperation partners in online talks via B2Match. Please use preferably a computer with a webcam and a microphone installed.
