How to effectively fill in the “Multimedia contents” section

The "Multimedia content" section is particularly important because this is where you have the opportunity to best promote your company.

  • To access the section from the dashboard, click on "Exhibitor Profile Editor" on the left column
  • Once you have filled in and saved the required fields with company name and logo, sector and contacts, access the section "Multimedia content"

To effectively fill in the section try to answer three questions:

  1. What results have you achieved with your business?
  2. What are your business’ strengths?
  3. What adjectives would you use to describe your business?
  • You can enter a short description (up to 300 characters) in the first box. Here it is important to be concise and to write direct and short sentences
  • In the box below you have the possibilty to expand the text and write a more detailed description
  • Once the text is filled in, you can add a cover picture, videos, photos and the documents you want to show on your company profile
  • Click on “Save and continue”. For a final overview of your profile, click on the “Profile Preview” on the top right

How to use the “Matching Section”

Information within this section will help the platform suggest those companies that best match partners you wish to meet. That is to say, the more information about your company you give, better chances you will have to find ideal partners with whom you can organize B2B meetings

  • Access your profile with your e-mail and password
  • Click on the "Exhibitor Profile Editor" section in the left column
  • Fill in all the fields until you get to the "Matching" section
  • Click on one or more activities in the section “What kind of parterships are you looking for”
  • Then answer the question "In which sectors are you seeking partnerships?", selecting the answer that best suits your needs from the drop-down menu. Again, you can choose more than one
  • The system will put together all the data you provide to establish the percentage of "matching feeling" with other companies in the Marketplace

How to manage meeting requests

  • To send a meeting request go to the Marketplace in the top menu and select the company with which you wish to arrange a B2B meeting
  • Once you have clicked on the logo of the selected company, you will be directed to the company profile page.
  • Click on the "arrange a meeting" button on the right side of the page. If you have not logged in to your profile yet, you will see the dedicated fields where you can enter your email, password and login
  • In the drop-down menu below, select the theme of the meeting from those proposed or write your preference in the empty field
  • Click on "Confirm" to send the request
  • To accept a meeting request you must access your profile, you can do so by clicking directly on the link in the notification e-mail. In the dashboard of the profile, clicking on "requests received" you will find the list of companies that want to meet you
  • To accept the request click on the blue "Accept meeting" button
  • Based on the availability of the participants' agendas, the system will allow you to choose the time of the meeting and will automatically give the table number where the meeting will take place
  • Meeting requests can be accepted by the contact person. Whoever accepts the request first, becomes the owner of that meeting
  • Instead, if you do not want to accept the meeting request, from the "Requests received" page click on "Refuse"
  • In the "Requests received" section you can check the status of each request
  • The company who sent a meeting request, will have the possibility to ask for a change of the proposed time
  • To do so, click on "Personal Requests" in the left-hand column of the dashboard
  • Click on the "Ask to change time" button on the right-hand side of the meeting in question
  • In the box you can write a message specifying the new meeting time
  • Click on "Ask to change time" to send the message
  • At this point the company that received the request to change the time will receive a notification
  • To accept or reject the request, click on "Requests received" in the left column of the dashboard
  • Click on the orange button “Change time”. Click on “yes” to accept the request or “no” if you are not available at that time
  • Click "yes" to select the role of the person you wish to meet again and set a new time for the meeting. By clicking on "no" the already set meeting time will remain unchanged
  • After receiving a meeting request, before accepting or rejecting it, the user has the possibility to activate a chat to talk with the contact person or professional of the company that sent the request
  • To activate the chat, simply click on "Accept conversation". The user can always access the active chats by clicking on the menu item "Messanger" at the top or by clicking on the grey button next to the received meeting requests, which will only be present if the corresponding chat has been activated when the user accepts the meeting request. If the user rejects the meeting request they will no longer have the possibility to activate the corresponding chat.
  • To view all the B2B meetings you will hold, click on "My agenda" in the left-hand column of the dashboard.
