How will it work?
Showcase Virtual Showrooms are working with B2Match www.b2match.com, specialists in virtual event solutions.
Buyers will be able to see all exhibitors, view images of their products and will be able to search by keywords for specific products e.g. ceramics, knitwear, hand-made, jewellery etc. The platform enables buyers to request virtual 1-1 meetings with exhibitors. Meetings will take place using video conferencing tools embedded in the B2Match platform.
Exhibitors will register first and then complete a profile template on B2Match, outlining their company details, contact information and available products. Additionally nine product images can be uploaded to strengthen profiles and attract buyer interest.
Buyers can search and filter the profiles of exhibitors, to identify the companies they are interested in and send a meeting request. On accepting a meeting request the buyer will be offered mutually available timeslots, and then book the meeting. Meetings can be rescheduled if necessary.
