  • You are an innovative Norwegian start-up/SME: meet French corporates to present your solution for a sustainable ocean and find potential partners.

B2B Meetings - How does it work?

A matchmaking event is a quick and easy way to meet potential cooperation partners in face-2-face talks. 20 minutes run fast but it is enough to build first connections before the bell rings and the next talk starts.

1) Registration

  • Register via the green "Register now" button
  • In case you want to publish offers/requests and manage 1:1 meetings on-site read more below.

2) Publish a business profile to showcase your needs

Create a clear and concise business profile to raise your visibility on this platform.
Your profile should describe who you are, what you can offer to potential partners and who you want to meet.
A good profile will generate significantly more meeting requests. Your profile will be visible before, during and after the event.

3) Browse profiles of attendees

Find out who is offering interesting and promising business opportunities

4) Send & receive meeting requests

Be active not reactive. Browse published participants profiles and send meeting requests to those you want to meet at the event. Adding a meaningful remark why you are interested in a meeting will increase the chance that your request will be accepted. Usually, accepted meeting requests will be scheduled automatically. Thus you have immediate access to time and location of a meeting.

Booking rules?

  • Everybody can send meeting requests to everyone
  • Incoming meeting requests have to be accepted to be scheduled

5) Matchmaking Event

  • Shortly before the event you will receive your meeting schedule by email.
  • A paper version may also be handed out at the registration desk.

    * get access to your meeting schedule on your mobile phone
