Dealroom Matchmaking area

We at PacTec Helsinki want you to get the most out of your visit to the event. To increase your efficiency and productivity during the event, we offer you an opportunity to pre-book 1-on-1 meetings with other visitors via the Deal Room meeting platform. You can see who is attending and suggest meetings with them when it suits you during the events. We’ll create prefilled profiles for people who said they want to participate in matchmaking in registration form.

We’ll also have a dedicated Deal Room area where your meetings will happen. For exhibitors, we provide meetings booked directly at their booth. Deal Room opens about a week before the event and you will receive an invitation via e-mail. So welcome and start preparing for the event.

 

PREPARATION TIPS

What sets good conference goers apart from the rest is preparation. Unfortunately – most people do not prepare for events. This is what you can do differently. Main things to do:

SET CONCRETE GOALS

Nope, “cutting a deal” does not count. We mean something along the lines of:

  • Meet 25 participants relevant to you.
  • Distribute 100 business cards.
  • Watch at least 1 keynote.
  • Learn 3 new things that will help you in your work.
  • Check the Deal Room to see who are coming you to meet.

Write those down. Hold yourself and your whole team accountable.

 

FILL UP YOUR SCHEDULE

Instead of just marking “PacTec Helsinki” in your calendar you should literally plan the event by the hour beforehand. Mark the most interesting things to your calendar and utilize Deal Room to book meetings. Do not just have one thing there.

 

IDENTIFY YOUR TARGETS – WHO DO YOU WANT TO MEET

It helps tremendously to not just have goals, but to know exactly who you want to meet. Therefore, take some time in order to really look into the people who are coming (using the Deal Room platform), what they are interested in, how they relate to you and what you could talk about. Then reach out to them
through the matchmaking tool.

Can’t wait to meet you all at PacTec Helsinki 2018! About a week before the event, we’ll send you an invitation via e-mail to Deal Room platform with further instructions, so you can start booking meetings.
