Virtual 18. EMVA Business Conference

How the virtual face-to-face meetings work


1. Registration | up to 24 June 2020
When doing the registration please declare your availability for meetings by clicking the respective meeting sessions. In case you leave those sessions blank you will not be able to book a meeting with other attendees neither others may request you for a meeting later on.

2. Set up a profile
Next you create a profile that will be visible to other participants on the event website. The profile should describe what you are looking for and can offer to potential partners.  The sooner you set up your profile, the better chance other delegates will have to request meetings with you.

3. Request meetings | 1 June 2020 onwards
You can start to receive and send meetings requests to other participants who you would like to have a video conference with.  You may finalise your meeting requests until 3 days before the conference.

4. Build connections at the online conference | 26 June 2020
A few days prior to the event you will receive an email with your virtual meetings schedule showing who you will meet in a virtual meeting room and at what time.
You may always check this online or via the B2match app.

What options do I have if the meeting partner does not show up timely?
