Event Format

The matchmaking events will take place in our virtual conference platform. The day will feature 12 meeting slots, split between morning and afternoon sessions; there will also be a one hour break for lunch.

Meetings will be scheduled for 20 minutes (plus a 10 minute buffer between slots) and take place in virtual meeting rooms similar to Zoom or MS Teams.

Vendors will also be able to showcase their offer in a virtual booth with downloadable materials, links to external content and a lightning demo video (up to 10 mins).

Matchmaking Process

Step 1: Buyers establish their needs

From June 2024

Buyers take part in a 30-minute interview with a member of the Insight Platforms team.

During this session, we will learn your priorities, establish your requirements and rate your interest in different categories of research tech solutions.

Step 2: Vendors submit meeting requests

From July 2024

Vendors offering solutions that meet the needs of participating buyers will be identified and screened.

Those who opt to take part will review the buyer organisations, attendee roles and interest areas. Vendors will then score their interest in meeting with each buyer.

Step 3: Buyers rate the appeal of each vendor

From August 2024

Buyers review the list of participating vendors and assign a score to each company based on their relevance and interest in meeting.

Step 4: We finalise matches and schedule meetings

From September 2024

The Insight Platforms team will collate all ratings and feedback to schedule meetings for the live event. Matches will be prioritised based on strength of mutual interest. Each participating buyer and vendor will have a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 12 meetings scheduled for their organisation.
