B2B Matchmaking

The afternoon of day 2 of the Forum will be dedicated to a B2B Matchmaking Session which intends to bring together participants and key stakeholders of Business, Investment and Government .

B2B Matchmaking is a quick and easy way to meet new partners in a well structured manner. People meet and greet at high speed. 20 minutes are usually enough to identify and launch potentially rewarding cooperation and business partnerships.
