CIBS launches online B2B matchmaking programme

The China International Boat Show (CIBS), which is now scheduled to take place between the 22nd and 24th June after the original start date in late March was postponed due to COVID-19, is preparing to launch a new B2B matchmaking programme to serve both suppliers and overseas buyers in maintaining and developing its supply chain relationships.

Its team have collected and compiled the business information of its exhibitors to create the new system. By using data-driven approaches, the system will recommend attendees, products or sessions for users based on their interests, business information, interactive behaviour and macro trends.

Meanwhile, based on the exhibitor list and each user’s personal requirements, that platform allows one-to-one conversations with the exhibitors a user matches with.

An exact launch date has not yet been announced.

CIBS has a wide variety of products to match all requirements, including: Boat and Relevant Services, Boat Equipment and Accessories, and Watersports.

To encourage and reward those who have long supported CIBS, it has decided to offer 200 free accounts to any business that wishes to apply for the matchmaking programme in advance.

In a statement, it said, “Hundreds of suppliers from the world’s leading brands and top Chinese companies have given us their business demands. In order to maintain a high-quality community with a good atmosphere, the number of candidates during the matchmaking programme is limited.

“No matter how complex your requirements are, who you would like to meet or contact, and what business information you prefer to know, please feel free to contact us and let us know your requirements, so that we can prepare and arrange the matchmaking programme for you.”

A survey regarding purchasing demands can be found here.
