How Did One Event Make 13,000 Face-to-Face Business Meetings Happen?

Certain’s appointment matching and scheduling technologies have been hard at work facilitating more than 13,000 face-to-face business meetings between participants of the AIBTM Exhibition in Orlando this week.

The Americas Incentive, Business Travel & Meetings (AIBTM) Exhibition brings together professionals in the U.S. meetings and events industry. One of the defining elements of this annual event has been the meaningful connections facilitated by Certain’s event management platform.  Both our matched appointments and self-scheduled appointments were made available to suppliers and hosted buyers.

This technology makes it easier for participants to connect with vendors and gather essential information, and for suppliers to meet with buyers to better understand their preferences and needs.

Here’s how it works:

We offer two ways to connect attendees in 1-to-1 meetings at your events. First, through our appointment-matching engine, Match2Connect™. Here, event organizers can intelligently orchestrate meetings between any number of attendees based on mutually matched profiles and preferences.

During the registration process, attendees enter their interests, objectives, and any other information indicated by the event organizer. Through online, user-friendly forms, participants can select preferences by filtering through the informational data collected during registration. Once participants and teams enter preference and ranking selections through the interface, the matching engine automatically transforms like-minded requests into meetings in a specific location.

Second, is through our self-scheduled appointments option, which allows participants to select and request meetings with others in a simple and streamlined process.

Discover how our 1-to-1 meetings technology can significantly enhance the overall experience at your event by engaging attendees, powering connections, and accelerating business.
