The Business Matching system offers each buyer and exhibitor the opportunity to select relevant parties to conduct business meetings. Ultimately, the goal of the business matching is to mitigate the hassle of arranging appointments on-site and to ensure that each exhibitor maximises his/her time at the show. On top of meetings with buyers, exhibitors are also able to allocate time to attend our workshops, education sessions as well as networking functions.
There are two (2) rounds for our Business Matching process:
As a participating exhibitor with an appointment set, you are entitled to:
Round 1 – Pre-scheduled Appointments (PSA)
The first phase of our business matching platform last approximately three (03) weeks and would occur approximately 2 – 2.5 months prior to the show. During this phase, exhibitors would be able to choose up to 65 desired buyers from the list of buyers within the platform.
Concurrently, buyers would be also making their selections of exhibitors during this phase. Furthermore, exhibitors would be able to modify the desired buyers’ selections till the closure of the PSA.
Upon the closure of the PSA phase, there will be a matching period for exhibitors and buyers for approximately three (03) weeks where the system would match buyers and exhibitors using a pre-determined logarithm.
Round 2 – Online Diary Appointments (ODA)
The ODA would occur after the matching period whereby the confirmed appointments from the 1st phase of business matching process would surface within the appointment set of exhibitor.
These confirmed appointments are matched accordingly to the follow criteria:
Round 1: Perfect Matches (Exhibitors chose the buyers, and vice versa)
Round 2: Buyer’s Choice (Buyers that choose exhibitor, but exhibitor did not choose buyers – This shows that buyers have interest in the exhibitor)
Round 3: Exhibitor’s Choice (Exhibitor choose buyers, but buyers may not have chosen the exhibitor – This shows the exhibitor’s interest in the buyer)
The ODA phase allows exhibitors to further request for more meetings with ITB Asia delegates within the available appointment slots. This process would occur till the last day of ITB Asia 2018.
