      • Use a good webcam to improve the image quality
      • Avoid connecting via your phone and use a reliable high-speed WIFI connection
      • Consider cutting your video, in case of broadband issues
      • To make sure that everything is set correctly, please go to your "Meetings" and click on the green camera button "Meeting starts in ..." - this will open the video call feature of your browser. You should be able to see yourself

    DURING THE ONLINE EVENT

      • Access the b2match web platform and be online at least 5-10 minutes before your meetings start
      • Check the latest version of your meeting schedule and prepare for your meetings.
      • Join the welcome briefing and make sure that you are online before your first B2B meeting.
      • RESPECT the other participants' time and show up to all your meetings or cancel them early enough in advance to allow other participants to use the now available time slot.
      • Press the START BUTTON in your profile to start your scheduled meeting.
      • Close your Video Call meeting timely.
        Please leave the call in time as you or your meeting partner can have a subsequent meeting right after. A watch is indicating the remaing meeting time.
      • If an unforeseen circumstance arises and you will not attend a meeting, please cancel your meetings through the platform. This way,the other participant will be notified.

    FAQs

    How do I join a scheduled meeting?
    • You can access your meeting schedule via Menu "Meetings" in the top right corner.
    • Click the green button "Start meeting" next to your meetings to join the 1:1 meeting Video Call

    What options do I have if the meeting partner does not show up timely?
    • Quick reminder to join the Video Call
      Send a message (or phone call) and alert your meeting partner to join the missed Video call.
      This should work well if enough time is left over (e.g. 15+ min) for this scheduled meeting.
    • Re-schedule the meeting
      In case your meeting partner doesn’t react immediately on a reminder as indicated above you should re-schedule and postpone the meeting by 1-2 hours.
    • If a meeting can not be managed at the event date itself please use the chat messaging system (open the meeting partners profile) to schedule a phone call or meeting outside this platform
