The sign of a successful virtual event is when your attendees ask for more. More time, more meet-ups, more ideas. Organizers have been getting feedback from participants that they would like to manage more meetings after an event.
How to deliver? Offer up b2match’s long term matchmaking option. What exactly does this mean? Long term matchmaking is still a session, however they just last for longer periods of time, for example, a couple of weeks or months. They can be a period when attendees are able to meet anytime they agree on.
In the b2match event management solution, organizers can incorporate this added benefit at three different opportunities:
- Before a regular session starts
- After a regular session is over
- When the event offers long term matchmaking only
To promote this highly sought after feature to participants, organizers can:
- Add a note on the event website and mention that the meetings are now taking place in a longer time span
- Send attendees a message from the b2match event management platform
What is the participant’s experience? It remains the same as regular virtual meetings, with one exception. In long term matchmaking, the participants have the flexibility to choose meeting lengths. They use the meeting interface which includes a calendar, messaging for participants to discuss times, and even a timezone management tool. It indicates time windows matching both parties' business hours, in the moment when the meeting is requested.
