Exclusive One-on-One meetings to boost your network of contacts!

In the preparation of the event, registered participants can submit a prioritized list of desired business meetings based on the list of participants and submitted company profiles. The matchmaking will be planned by the organizers based on these requests. At least four meetings can be guaranteed. The attendees will also have sufficient time for free networking.  

After the event, there is the possibility of an informal dinner at Gaffel Haus Berlin to further intensify the connections made. The dinner is kindly sponsored by BVMed.

The format is exclusively aimed at  IVAM and BVMed members and is free of charge for them. It is addressed to the CTO and CEO level, established product and business developers as well as all other interested members. The event language will be English.
