As a first step, an integrated matchmaking tool that will suggest interesting contacts for you will. This will also enable you to have to join the business speed-dating formats. You can also schedule meetings before and during the event that fit your personal agenda.

  • At the event platform are no 3D rendered booths or conference rooms; it is a virtual platform focused on personal dialogue with experts in the industry, exchanging ideas and contacts, and gathering various insights from the technical lectures and networking sessions. On the platform, you will find the conference sessions and sponsor profiles with an abundance of information fitting the conference topics. You can network with everybody in the industry, and you will have access to the virtual and interactive sessions.

    In Bremen, we are hosting the conference and the technical streaming of the lectures. Right now, everything is very restricted because of COVID-19. Of course, we are eager to meet you in person, but leave us all a bit time, maybe things will get better. Smaller meetings like association or committee meetings could be held in person in Bremen, we are in evaluation of this. If you are able to travel to Bremen and want to make connection to the colleagues of Bremer Baumwollbörse or the Faserinstitut / FIBRE Bremen, we are of course happy to meet you.

  • As a participant you can purchase a ticket via the Online Registration. This gives you access to all conference sessions and profiles and you can contact any registered participant. You will also have free access to interactive live sessions.

  • Yes. You must register as a participant in the digital event and purchase your ticket via the Online Registration. After that, you will receive an “onboarding” link to enter at the virtual platform, where you fill in additional information about yourself and your company, and also answer specific matchmaking questions according to your interests and needs. This will give you the opportunity to contact other participants and lets you benefit from the networking functions. For this purpose your profile will be visible on the platform during the event.

  • During the “onboarding”, you will set up your individualized participant profile on the digital platform and define your criteria for matching (what you are offering or looking for). You yourself decide, for example, whether you want to upload a profile photo, but we highly recommend doing so. The profile you set up will be visible on the platform to other participants for the duration of the digital event, to enable you and them to make contact. Your profile will no longer be visible once the platform goes offline.

  • After you have bought a ticket via the Online Registration you will be invited in a separate email (beginning of March 2020) to participate in the onboarding process. During the onboarding, you will register on the event platform, define your profile, and state your criteria (what you are offering or looking for) so as to get the greatest possible advantage from the matchmaking tool. The matchmaking tool will support you during the event by suggesting the most interesting contacts for you among the full list of participants.

  • Around the beginning of March, you will receive an email including the onboarding link. The platform will be available from that point onwards, and you can set up your personal profile, define your matching criteria, compile a personal alerts list from the programme of presentations, and start arranging meetings for the event days.

  • As a participant you can get your ticket via the Online Registration, which offers you access to all sponsor profiles, conference sessions and enables you to contact any registered participant.
