BERLIN, 31 January 2017: ITB Berlin is organising two speed dating events, 9 March, that will enable buyers as well as bloggers to contact exhibitors, worldwide, in the shortest possible time.
In the morning, 9 March, the members of the ITB Buyers Circle can meet national and international exhibitors at ITB’s so-called Speed Networking event.
In the afternoon, at the ITB Blogger Speed Dating event, bloggers can make use of eight-minute time slots to talk to representatives at the table-top session. The new ITB matchmaking tool is the latest effort to increase communications and networking during ITB Berlin to add value for exhibitors.
The ITB Speed Networking event will take place from 0930 to 1100 on Level B in the CityCube Berlin.
Using the new ITB Matchmaking Tool participants can book appointments in advance. Personal invitations will be sent to exhibitors, who can invite co-exhibitors to register for the event too.
Buyers and exhibitors can provide information on key themes in their profile and also emphasise particular interests. This makes it easier to find exactly the right conversation partners.
Only participants who have pre-booked may attend the networking event and they will receive an appointment list beforehand. During the eight-minute time slots participants can exchange information, establish new contacts, find out about destinations and products, and expand their business interests.
Additional details and contact information on the ITB Speed Networking event can be found at www.itb-berlin.de/en/Exhibitors/SpeedDating/.
Using the ITB Matchmaking Tool, up to nine appointments can be set up in advance. The ITB Blogger Speed Dating event will take place on Thursday, 9 March 2017 from 1600 to 1800 in Hall B in the CityCube Berlin.
The Blogger Speed Dating event is now closed.
