International Digital Matching Service

Finding quality business contacts, for buying, supplying, investing or advising, can be an expensive and time consuming activity.  The IFB2016 Digital Matching Service can help you connect with your targeted contacts at no cost to you.  Our system allows Business Club Members, to browse our Offers – Requests & Specialist Advisor Catalogue and via the IFB2016 Business Club database matches each company profiles with the ultimate goal of facilitating meetings within the festival venue, from June 13th 2016 to the 1st July 2016.  With over 6,000 meetings planned over this three week period, this will be the largest “Meet the Buyer" event in the world in 2016.  

How you can take part? 

If you are not already a member of the Business Club, simply sign up for free of charge, and complete the online form.  To maximise your chances of matching your Offers to Requests within the Business Club you need to have your forms completed by the 29th February 2016 because, in March 2016 we will initiate our digital matchmaking engine which will search for your ideal business contacts within on our database that match your requirements, in part or in full.  You will receive an email, or emails with a detailed profile of any suppliers that meet your needs and that’s when we introduce the team to you!   We will contact you to see if you wish to meet any of these companies and as you might imagine we approach the Buyer or Investor side initially as they have ultimate authority on whether the meeting can go ahead.  When we have obtained the agreement of both parties to the match, we will arrange a meeting for you at the Festival, within our purpose built Future Deals Lounge.
