The business matchmaking initiative, launched successfully during this year’s Remanexpo product group, has now been expanded to the remainder of Paperworld, and exhibitors across the event – taking place from 28 to 31 January 2017 in Frankfurt, Germany – should now have received registration confirmation regarding the business matchmaking. If you have not received your confirmation, you can contact the business matchmaking team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Recycler reported last year that the business matchmaking programme had been introduced for the Remanexpo product group alongside a business lounge, with the matchmaking said by Paperworld’s organisers, Messe Frankfurt, to be an “attractive programme to promote business relationships”, set to “bring together demand and supply from the trade and industry”.
The matchmaking programme was aimed at “efficiently bring[ing] together demand and supply”, and also give exhibitors “the chance to gain new customers” and give visitors “the opportunity to find valuable new suppliers”. Both groups were able to “make targeted contacts and initiate potential business relationships even before the fair begins” by entering product information and interests on an online platform.
The information provided allowed attendees “with the potential to become business partners” to be “brought together by a trained team and a computer-aided programme”. Appointments were arranged by the computer-aided tool by “taking account of the needs of both sides”, and allowing attendees to “make the best possible use of their time at the fair”. The system remains free of charge for all users.
A wide range of industry companies are already confirmed for the event as exhibitors, with strong interest shown in the event. Previous exhibitors have already received an email containing a personal link to registration as well, and you can register for the event here. In May, The Recycler reported the entire Paperworld event has seen a record number of exhibitor registrations, and The Recycler reported that over 100 exhibitors have been confirmed for the Remanexpo product group.
This year’s event saw over 1,608 exhibitors and 36,773 visitors from over 139 countries. A call for papers has also been launched for the REMCON conference, which will be chaired again by Lightwords’ Peter Mayhew. Visitors can now apply for vouchers to get their free visitor tickets, and you can do this by clicking here.
