A complete overhaul to the way of business matchmaking. A complete overhaul to your DISTRIBUTECH International experience.
MATCH! Elite is a highly interactive meeting format that brings together decision makers and suppliers in order to create a productive and collaborative network during the event. With pre-arranged meetings scheduled before even arriving onsite, this program guarantees efficiency, convenience and a sense of community throughout your show experience.
The quality of the MATCH! participants that we engaged with at the Trimble Energy booth was impressive. We had a lot of the solutions that
they were interested in learning more about. The engagements were of very high quality... The program allows the system to match
participants based on what they’re specifically looking for, with the solutions that the vendors are offering, so when they did meet with you
at the booth you were already advanced in terms of the conversation you were having with them."
