2022 Matchmaking Information
There will be no in person appointment setting, we are using the EventDex platform for all appointment management.
Downloading the EventDex app from the App Store/Play Store to your smart phone or tablet will help with managing your appointments while at the conference.
Volunteers will not have access to your schedules. EventDex app download instructions
We are no longer able to accept new participants in the program, if you registered before August 15th you would have received login information to set up your profile in preparation of appointment scheduling opening with a link to this website https://match.eventdex.com.
For those that registered after August 15th all is not lost, we have a lot of options for you too. Options include a waiting area for any openings and a box to drop off your business card for each buyer. Many of the buyers also have an exhibit booth that you may be able to discuss your product or service. Be sure to put a sticker or write on the back of your business cards your NAICS codes and diversity classification as many buyers are looking for specific ones.
Please be patient with us, since this is our first year back there may be some unforeseen glitches to work out. Rest assured that we will do our best to resolve any issue that may arise.
Arriving early for your appointment is the best practice, if you are not there two minutes after the start of your appointment time, your spot may be given to someone on the waiting list/waiting area.
When the timer goes off ending your session time, please wrap up your meeting asap to be respectful for the next person’s appointment with that buyer.
If you missed scheduling your appointments, see Melody or any of the matchmaking volunteers for your best course of action.
