What is B2B Matchmaking?

B2B Matchmaking is a way for buyers (tier 1s, OEMs and end-users) and suppliers (exhibitors) attending Ceramics Expo to pre-schedule one-to-one business meetings at the show via an online meetings portal.

B2B Matchmaking allows you to pre-qualify leads and connect with potential new suppliers and partners before the show, helping you to plan your time more effectively.
