The Event

WHAT IS MATCHING?

Matching is an excellent opportunity to develop new business relations.

The nineth edition of Matching, from the 25th to the 27th November 2013, will take place in the traditional venue of the Milan Exhibition Centre in Rho.


A PACKED PROGRAMME OF APPOINTMENTS

Matching is based on the arrangement of meetings between participants.

Companies intending to participate in the event describe their business operations and needs, and the benefits of their products and services on the www.e-matching.it portal. These details are cross-referenced to produce a schedule of personalised meetings for each participant. Each company places its own offering and capacity at the disposal of the network and examines its own needs to determine which meetings are of greatest interest.


 A BUSINESS NETWORK

Matching provides a unique opportunity for businessmen to select new suppliers, to get to know potential customers, to examine markets, to internationalise and to innovate. Within the cultural context of Italian industry, in which SMEs have always integrated and networked, Matching provides a chance to extend these networks and fine-tune them into a tool for combating the crisis. Matching offers a chance to meet international buyers and companies from 40 different countries.


 PRODUCT SECTORS AND LARGE ENTERPRISES

Because participants in Matching come from such a large number of different sectors, companies can benefit from a vast range of potential relations. The most significant areas of industry represented in 2012 were: construction and plant with 248 companies, agriculture and food with 229, services and training with 231, healthcare with 130 companies including 42 hospitals, textiles and clothing with 70 companies, transport and logistics with 52, energy, heating and environment with 97, and tourism, catering and wellbeing with 48.
