MATCH & INVEST
AT THE SUMMIT
LOOKING TO CONNECT?
Want to meet with the new and most suited business partners?
Networking is a key part of any event and we have made sure that virtual networking is even easier and better. However, there is one thing to note. Networking happens on both the web app and the mobile app via the “M&I” button under (Match&Invest). In the M&I platform you will find full profiles of attendees, suggested meetings for you and the place to have a virtual meeting call.
In the event platform (Whova), under the “attendees” button, you only use it to browse attendee profiles with a glance, but not formal curated meetings.
When you register you will receive two confirmation emails from us, one for the event and one for M&I. Take a look at this:
M&I is an online platform that makes finding who you need easy. It matches your need with offers from the audience. Easy!
For the 2020 Virtual 365 Edition all premium registered attendees will not only get access to the business matching and networking area during the event, but also year-long access to the business matching and networking in the online SAIS Community platform.
