In addition to the physical event, ProSweets Cologne is offering a new online industry tool for registered exhibitors and trade visitors as well as for media representatives, which enables networking with potential business partners. Via Matchmaking 365+ exhibitors can reach trade visitors in time before the fair opens, regardless of the physical exhibition dates of ProSweets Cologne (31.01.-03.02.2021).
“With Matchmaking 365+ we are taking the next step towards hybrid trade fairs. Especially in times like these it is essential that we offer our customers extensive support and solutions that in addition to the physical trade fair provide a clear added value and additional options of establishing contacts, networking and an exchange,” explained Julia Kölsch, Director of ProSweets Cologne.
In comparison to the former Matchmaking platform, the new version 365+ offers the exhibitors additional options regarding the product presentation. The users can present their products as photo and text information within the exhibitor showroom and increase the attention their company attracts by embedding video content. New products are especially highlighted here in order to present them to potential customers and media representatives in a targeted manner. In addition to contents, further company contacts are displayed in the exhibitor showroom, because user colleagues can be invited to join the platform. As such, the registered trade visitors are provided with specific points of contact at the companies according to their concrete needs. Contact proposals based on the stated interests of the participants support the process of finding and establishing new, interesting contacts. In addition to conventional forms of establishing contacts, the platform now also enables meetings per video, chat or audio. Due to functions like online appointment scheduling, the targeted product search or virtual meetings, the supplier trade fair for sweets and snacks enables an optimal preparation and follow-up of the trade fair visit.
Beyond this, Matchmaking 365+ makes industry-related content in the form of industry knowledge, interviews or also the contents of the trade fair event programme available. In this way, both trade visitors and media representatives can inform themselves about the latest products and further industry contents of the companies prior to, during and after the trade fair. Access to the digital Matchmaking platform of ProSweets Cologne will be granted to registered trade visitors and media representatives free of charge.
