Why MeetToMatch in Cologne, during the largest trade show of Europe in gaming?

People have been asking for a great matchmaking solution in Cologne for quite some years. After having received many personal requests in the past years, we decided to fill this gap. We launched our service in 2016, and we immediately became the largest and most effective matchmaking event used on the trade floor with over 260 participants and almost 650 confirmed meetings. This year, we have already doubled the participants number, with more key players participating than ever before!

You guys were fantastic! I cannot say enough great things about you and the System. I wish every conference used it – it would make my life better and my job as Director of Business Development at Elias Software more successful! Also you were really there for me when I needed you, including Saturday and Sunday prior to the show – much appreciated! Best system I have ever used!
