One of the most popular and longstanding features of the Airshow, the Business Connections Exchange (BCE), formally Meet the Buyer, provides buyers and suppliers with the ultimate networking opportunity to meet face-to-face and to do real business.
For the 2022 edition, we enhanced our bespoke matching system to significantly increase the relevance of meetings and the compatibility between the buyers’ procurement requirements and the suppliers’ offerings, providing fantastic business development opportunities and a platform for buyers to meet with relevant suppliers.
Over 500 meetings took place at FIA2022, with 221 unique visitors, 39 buyers and 182 suppliers.
Our intelligent software, plus direct input from both buyers and suppliers, supported by our own diligence, means a much more strategic matching process.
Participants of the Business Connections Exchange receive access to unlimited meetings with suitable companies across the three days of the programme, with a professional and personalised support service available throughout via the Vi-Meet platform.
Applications to take part in BCE at FIA2024 will go live later this year.
