In 2020 the meetings of the MEDICA Healthcare Brokerage Event are held due to the COVID-19 pandemic only virtually. The integrated virtual meeting solution offers participants the possibility to manage their foreseen face-2-face meetings via video calls.It runs in all Internet Browsers (but not yet the b2match App). No installation of additional software components is required.
HOW IT WORKS
1. Register for our Business Meetings
You can have a look at the video to get more information about the registration process.
2. Set up a meaningful cooperation profile
The profile should point out your core competencies/core tasks. Moreover, it should describe which kind of cooperation you are looking for. The sooner you set up your profile, the more meeting requests you will receive. Your profile will be published and promoted on this website and everyone has access to it before, during and after the event.
3. Select partners for bilateral meetings
You can send meeting requests to other participants who you would like to talk to during the event
4. Accept or decline meeting requests
Incoming meeting requests have to be accepted, otherwise they cannot be scheduled. Of course you can also decline meeting requests or keep them as pending if you want to accept later on. Please make sure to agree on a meeting time with your meeting partner.
5. Meet your future cooperation partners
You may always check the status quo of your meetings online or via the app.
