“The #MatchmakingDay program allowed me to have an overview of different suppliers in a very short time. The time of the meetings was enough to understand if the offer of each company I met was suitable for my needs, so I think the format of the meetings worked perfectly. Also as regards the pairing itself, I'm happy with this, all the suppliers I met were interesting and now I'm in contact with all of them. The detailed evaluation of the offer will be discussed in the coming weeks, however at this stage I am confident that we have found valid contacts for our business.”
J. Beltran, Hosted Buyer from Spain
“I am very happy to have been able to take part in the Matchmaking Event, the organization of the matches and the outcome exceeded my expectations. Concrete and effective meetings allowed me to know and compare multiple offers at the same time. All the meetings gave me interesting feedback on the offer of the Chinese exhibitors. We decided to follow up with 4 companies that I met during the Matchmaking Event. Thank you for this opportunity.”
R. Szulc, Hosted Buyer form Poland
The #MatchmakingEvent provided a very useful solution for my business. I got in touch with some suppliers who might be important to me. At this time, we still have to discuss the details of
their offer, however it was a profitable program that allowed me in a relatively short time to learn more about the products I was looking for.”

“The #MatchmakingEvent gave me the opportunity to see the news of the market and to connect with some interesting exhibitors. The online meetings are not comparable to the face-to-face meetings during the fair, however it is the best solution in the times marked by travel restrictions ".
R. Arts, Hosted Buyers from the Netherlands
“Nowadays, when we face major travel problems, it is not easy to move outside, but all my clients cannot run out of stock. Due to the pandemic situation, some of our current overseas suppliers have limited their production and it has been very difficult for us to find new suppliers, able to deliver exactly the products we were buying, that's why the #MatchmakingEvent organized by R + T Asia in 2021 has been very useful to us.
Usually, companies from countries like Pakistan, India or Bangladesh don't look for new suppliers online. Personal meetings are of significant importance to business. However, every request arises from a need, and today the need for a company like mine is to connect with new suppliers digitally.
As I have been doing business in China for a long time, it was an easy and sufficient way for me to communicate with selected, new exhibitors and understand the relevance of their offer.
The #MatchmakingEvent was a great experience for me and in the anticipation to the next R+T Asia that I will attend in person - I’m looking forward to the new online matchmaking sessions with overseas suppliers.”
