HOW DOES MATCH! WORK?

  • A few weeks before the Show, MATCH! exhibitors and buyers receive a list of "suggested" matches based upon mutual product interests. Exhibitors and buyers can then accept the recommendations and the appointment is then confirmed in each party's calendar.
  • Online access to the system will allow you to manage your appointments and update your profile
  • Meeting requests begin approximately 3 weeks from the event
