Networking possibilities

Make the most of your digital presence!

The lead finder option provides you with easy access to potential new connections. The attendee match-making shows you what other participants are looking to buy or sell. If you are looking to find a supplier, a partner, or a customer, this is the place for you.

Which possibilities are available in order to interact with other participants?

Here is how:

  1. Go to your communication center (on the right)

  2. Click on the profile picture.

  3. Click on “General Settings” and activate the “Networking” button (green):

The Lead Finder helps you find contacts based on what you buy/sell.

We kindly ask you to fill your details and activities. The Lead Finder option offers real added value to you as an attendee, whether you represent an exhibitor or not. It shows you what other participants are looking to sell or want to offer.

Which options do I have? What if I do not want to be found on ITBxplore?

Please follow this link to get to the list of all attendees.

Moreover, it is possible to search for buyers or sellers, or specific countries, etc. Use filters to define your search and get a list of results.

All you have to do is to go to your profile and get started. Add details by specifying information: I am a seller and I am offering or I am a buyer and I am buying.

You have the possibility to turn networking on and off by clicking on the corresponding button.

Networking is enabled by default, and if you turn it off, you will not be shown as a potential connection for other participants. This also means that you will not be able to find or connect with other participants.

How can I make an appointment?

You have several ways to interact with an organization or participant by simply clicking on the profile:

You will get a push notification to confirm that the meeting has been accepted and an email confirmation that the request has been accepted.

Which networking options does ITBxplore offer?

ITBxplore is based on what you entered under Buy/Sell, in your personal profile and enables networking with existing business partners as well as with new counterparts.

The matching process recommends suitable business contacts. The content is divided into two tabs:

  • Buyer

  • Seller

You have the possibility to send appointment and meeting requests and keep an overview thanks to the individual calendar function.

Please note: Please make sure that Networking (right side bar) is switched on.

Which possibilities are available in order to interact with other participants?

You have several options for interaction with an organisation or attendee simply by clicking on the profile:

When you click the “Start a video chat button”, you can create a new group chat or a new chat with an individual participant. You can start a new video chat with an individual participant by searching for them in the Search for people search box.

Once you’ve found the desired participant, you can click on them to open a chat. If you’ve found and selected someone you’ve already chatted with previously, that chat will open for you. You can also start a new group chat using the New group button.

How do I view the status of meetings on my meetings requests?

By clicking directly on the meeting you can see who has confirmed (green) / pending (black) / declined (red) the meeting request:

Can I follow events live? Where can I find livestreams?

All events are listed in the program navigation point on ITBxplore. When you see that icon, that means it will be streamed live.

More content will be later uploaded as Videos On Demand (VoDs). The Videos On Demand are available until the end of May 2023.
