[Matchmaking4U with Korean Buyers] Q&A about Pre-meeting

'The SIMTOS 2014 Matchmaking4U with Korean Buyers‘ enables SIMTOS exhibitors to meet verified buyers based on products and reliable information in advance. SIMTOS Matchmaking4U team organizes pre-meetings to minimize errors in matching which was the biggest problem at the last business meetings and to make more successful deals.

There are three types of pre-meetings as follows. Matchmaking4U team sets a meeting schedule, notifies and accompanies together.
1) Pre-meeting at domestic exhibitions: Meeting at exhibitors' stand of domestic exhibitions that SIMTOS exhibitors and buyers participate in.
2) Group pre-meeting: one-on-one individual meeting after exhibitors' group visit buyers' company including a factory tour.
3) Individual pre-meeting: Exhibitors and buyers visit each other on one-on-one individually or contact via an e-mail or a call.

It is held frequently until SIMTOS 2014.

It is not mandatory to join the pre-meeting but SIMTOS exhibitors have more opportunity to meet verified buyers in advance. Moreover, buyers who participate in both the pre-meeting and on-site meeting can be provided various support such as transporation (round trip) and accommodation fares etc. as a qualified buyer.

Outcomes of the pre-meeting is as below until now.
