B2B-Matchmaking Events

Global sourcing is a matter of course for many companies. To be able to act competitively, you need reliable suppliers. BME International supports your search for suppliers.
Since 2009, we have been offering our members a need-based search as part of our events. Individual, coordinated and effective. We have brought buyers and suppliers together in over 4,000 matchmakings. With a success rate of over 28%, 1 out of 3 conversations leads to a result. The focus of the B2B matchmaking is on production materials and services - in Europe, Asia and North Africa. If we have not planned a B2B event of your interest yet, check or use the services of the BME Sourcing Help Desk.

BME Sourcing Seminar

BME Sourcing Seminars are the smallest unit of our matchmaking events. Explore exciting markets together with our partners and at the same time prepare suppliers for the requirements of German procurement processes.

Together with GIZ, AHK or other partners, the dialogue-oriented sourcing seminars for buyers are both useful and effective. They implement knowledge, create a network and new business opportunities.

Design and structure of the seminars:

  • Number of participating buyers: 3-5
  • Buyer RFI and selected Supplier List
  • One day (virtual or on-site)
  • Morning Session: a seminar with buyers and BME presentations + discussion
  • Afternoon: pre-selected B2B-Meetings

I value and appreciate the good organization to present a pool of potential suppliers.
