9 networking tips for your appearance at #MES Insights
1. Register free of charge
Good to know: Participation in #MES Insights is free of charge. Just get your hands on a voucher code or invitation and get access to the official programme stream from 9 to 11 November and the on-demand videos.
2. Introduce yourself to the community!
Create your free networking profile and put it online, so you can network with exhibitors and other participants:
• Arrange appointments
In your profile you can:
• Upload a photo
• Name your company/institution
• Enter your position
• Save product groups for business matching, etc.
3. Your profile - more precise, more interesting!
Well-maintained and detailed profiles are the basis for high-quality networking! Also offer visitors to your profile the possibility,
• Send you messages
• Make appointments with you
• Chat with you
4. Find perfect business matches!
Via the business matching function, you will receive suggestions in your personal area for interesting contacts who perfectly match your search and who are certainly looking forward to your message!
Important: The recommendations are based on the product groups you have previously selected.
• As an employee of a partner/exhibitor, you select the product groups in which your company offers products for matching.
• As a visitor, you select product groups from which you are looking for exhibitors, products and services.
You can save interesting profiles in your favourites (trade fair planner) using the bookmark button.
5. Dates, Dates, Dates!
Make an appointment. As soon as you have found suitable contacts, you can contact them and arrange appointments:
Send an appointment proposal for a personal meeting - including a sent meeting link for a video call with a meeting tool of your choice, which you simply send with the invitation to the appointment.
In your personal appointment planner you have an overview of all received, sent and confirmed appointment requests.
6. Chat with participants and exhibitors
In the first step, you must allow chat requests in the basic data of your networking profile and agree to use the chat function. In exhibitor and networking profiles there is always a chat button when the chat function is used. If you want to chat with a person, you must first send a request. As soon as the request is confirmed, you can chat with each other. To accept a received request, you must click on the tick.
7. Create a watch list for your digital visit
I must remember this! The "Remember me" function allows you to save all interesting content:
• Programme contributions
With just a few clicks you can put together your own customised trade fair planner which you can access at any time!
8. Participate in a partner event
Our partners offer a range of digital events with a wide variety of topics. Participation in the partner events is free of charge for you. If you would like to participate in a partner event, you must register for it on a separate platform. You will find the link for registration under "External links". If the link is not yet available, this means that registration has not yet been opened. Press the participation button and check back later.
