Networking and Matchmaking Opportunities

We know that, for many of our visitors and exhibitors, networking is an essential part of their annual Vitafoods experience.

Bringing together innovators, decision-makers and thought-leaders from the entire nutraceutical supply chain, Vitafoods Virtual Expo is the place to meet new people and generate new opportunities.

Matchmaking explained

Designed to enable business expansion, leading-edge algorithms matched our attendees and exhibitors considering their business objectives and areas of interests. Matched professionals could then reach out to each other via secure, one-to-one video chat. Here is how it worked:

STEP 1 - Preparation

  • The platform opened ahead of the Vitafoods Virtual Expo to allow attendees and exhibitors to plan ahead to make the most of the networking experience 
  • Email confirmation with an access link were provided upon registration
  • Participants were advised to login and create your profile that represented their products, business and interests

STEP 2 - Discovery

  • Participants could search by company names and business sectors, product and ingredients categories, regions and much more
  • They could also explore new business opportunities and send meeting invitations
  • And plan their diary to maximise the number of meetings confirmed during the week

STEP 3 - Networking

  • Meetings could be scheduled from 8 am BST until 6pm BST and invitations could be sent at any time  
  • Up to 8 members could join a meeting at the same time

Speed networking sessions explained

Strategically placed into thematic micro-communities, Speed Networking sessions were designed to connect with people with similar interest in a most effective and engaging way. To ensure the process ran smoothly, our dedicated concierge team was on hand during the speed networking sessions to help with any queries.

Virtual summit networking

Delegates could also network with other professionals attending the Summit during the afternoon, as well as participate in thought-provoking roundtable discussions to take a deep dive into the key issues affecting the industry today.

*Peer to peer networking was only available during the Vitafoods Virtual Summit 15-17 September.
