Planning appointments with "Matchmaking"
This year, THE BRIGHT WORLD OF METALS is offering a fully digital platform for making appointments and establishing contacts in order to enable the acquisition of new contacts, possible business partners or meeting old acquaintances again. By using Matchmaking, you can access your appointments in your browser and app (Android / iOS) at any time and from anywhere, walk through the halls interactively and find personalised contact suggestions.
Registration and first steps
You will need a trade fair account for the trade fairs GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS, or NEWCAST in order to use the full range of functions of the application accompanying the trade fair. By ordering a ticket, you have already created an account that you can also use for Matchmaking. Alternatively, you can create an account here.
After registering on the website, you can register for Matchmaking. After entering a few personal details, the programme will be able to suggest contacts who might be of interest. You are able to use the application to its full extent after successful confirmation.
Searching for and finding contacts
Possible contacts can be found quickly and easily. Appointments can be arranged in no time.
After registering, the trade fair planning process begins: On the Matchmaking homepage, there are numerous contacts who have also registered for Matchmaking. In addition to personal details, the relevant companies, their stands and areas of activity are also listed. This enables you to quickly and efficiently expand your network, to find former acquaintances and to organise a perfect trade fair.
Matchmaking learns from your information and suggests personalised contacts. If you are specifically interested in welding and cutting technology, the algorithm will learn from it and will suggest more people in this field of activity.
Aside from the suggested contacts, the search function also provides the possibility of finding individual persons or companies.
After you have discovered interesting contacts, you can also use the application to arrange appointments: The potential conversation partner receives an appointment invitation with a time suggestion, which can be accepted. Afterwards both parties receive a confirmation and the date is noted in the integrated calendar. Meetings can easily be rescheduled in the event of a conflicting appointment.
With the functions of the Matchmaking application, you are able to quickly expand your professional network instead of roaming the exhibition halls in search of the right contacts. With a little preparation, all appointments will have been made in advance so that you can use your time as efficiently as possible.
List of exhibitors and interactive hall plan
At a glance: All exhibitors are included in the hall plan.
The Matchmaking application bundles all the necessary information for the BRIGHT WORLD OF METALS: Instead of having to consult different resources, you can digitally call up all the necessary information for your trade fair visit all at once. All the stands of each company are documented in detail in the list of exhibitors. In addition to subcontractors, you will find direct contact persons and the stand number here. The exhibitor representatives, who are listed separately, are available for direct appointments.
The interactive map shows all company stands including their logo. This does not only make it easier for you to search for the respective stand, but it also helps you navigate during the runtime of the fair. With a total of twelve occupied halls plus the outdoor area, even experienced visitors to the more than 300,000 square metres of Messe Düsseldorf find it difficult from time to time to unerringly find their way around. The map is a useful novelty as an interactive orientation aid.
Mobile apps for Android and iOS
The Matchmaking app on Android and iOS.
In the run-up to and at the trade fair itself, you can also use the full range of functions of the Matchmaking application when on the move. The app can be downloaded free of charge from the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store. Thus, you can always stay informed even when on the move.
All functions available on the website are also available to you in the app. You see your contacts, scheduled appointments, the hall layout and much more in your mobile companion. Should you need to reschedule an appointment at short notice due to trade fair stress, this is also possible: Simply send your business partners a message that is transmitted in real time.
