Agritechnica Match & Meet service aids networking between international businesses

Agritechnica's Match & Meet service identifies potential business partners with mutual interests and provides the means to bring them together during the show.


Contacts are the key to success in the business world. As such, DLG (German Agricultural Society), the host of Agritechnica in Hanover, will once again be offering its high-caliber Match & Meet service for exhibitors and trade visitors. Registration is free and has already opened. Communication within the online matchmaking service takes place in English. A valid admission ticket to Agritechnica entitles the holder to participate in the personal meetings on site.

Time is precious

Match & Meet identifies potential business partners with mutual interests and brings them together – directly and individually. This way, exhibitors and visitors are enabled to achieve their objectives much more efficiently. Interested parties register online and then use the online platform to describe the profile of their company, as well as products or services that they offer and/or need. As soon as they have completed registration, their profile is activated. 

Registered users can browse the user catalogue by keyword or free text fields to find suitable business partners. The tool allows users to set up, confirm or (if necessary) cancel appointments and to make arrangements to meet up in person at the trade fair. Once confirmed, appointments are automatically entered and stored in a personal meeting schedule. Conversations will take place at the fair and at the stand of the respective exhibitor. The standardized 30-minute appointment slots allow interested parties to make even more effective use of their visit and to save valuable time and resources.

Success through networking

Systems & Components will be held from November 10 to 14, 2015 (Preview Days: November 8 and 9) under the aegis of Agritechnica, the world's leading trade fair for agricultural machinery in Hanover. Displaying a wide range of products, the Systems & Components platform provides exhibitors and visitors with a symbiosis of scientific research, existing systems, modules and components presented by innovative suppliers as well as high-end farm equipment.

Dr. Raffaele Talarico, who is in charge of the Systems & Components exhibition and the Technical Program, explains the purpose of the online platform. “Agricultural engineering has clearly developed into a technology leader. The Systems & Components suppliers’ platform has therefore been opened up to new industries. Pioneering sectors such as aerospace, automotive, road construction, mining and shipbuilding customers already use standards set by the agricultural engineering industry. We see tremendous scope for the entire supplier industry to use our online Match & Meet service to conduct even more targeted expert dialogues and initiate international business contacts with synergy effects.”
