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 5,000 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.
