EFIB 2018 partnering system 

 

This service is available for registered participants only.

We recommend that you log in to the site regularly to request and accept meetings to maximise your networking opportunities and experience at EFIB 2018.


Three easy steps – How to use the partnering system and schedule meetings

 STEP ONE: Confirm your details

  • Please click Account to complete your partnering profile. This can include a brief summary of your background, your company/organisation and products, as well as a logo and a personal portrait (.jpg or .png, max file size 1Mb). 

  • The more details you include, the easier it will be for other attendees to find and research your company and request meetings with you or evaluate your meeting requests.

  • You can change your password and/or email preference here if required.


STEP TWO: Check your schedule

  • Go to Schedule in the upper menu bar to manage your availability for one-to-one meetings.

  • NOTE: All your time slots are set as ‘available’ by default.

  • Click the toggle icon on the times you wish to be ‘unavailable’ for meetings. It is important that you do this so as to avoid receiving meeting requests for inconvenient times.

  • Your meeting schedule will be based on your accepted requests and mutual availability.

  • You can also print your schedule directly from this page using the 'PDF' link. 


STEP THREE: Set up Meetings

Click Search in the upper menu bar to:
(1) search for companies and participants of interest and
(2) send requests for one-to-one meetings

1 – SEARCH

  • You can search by ‘Organisations’ and ‘Attendees’ by names and keywords.

  • You can sort the search results alphabetically or by date of entry by using the selection tool above the listing.

  • The search box on the left of the page helps to refine your selection by focus area.

  • The search is hierarchical, so the second category you select will be a subset of the first.

  • If you wish to start a new search, please click ‘Reset’ in the ‘Focus area’ search box before starting again.

2 BOOK MEETING

  • Click 'Book Meeting' on your chosen participant's entry, then follow the on-screen instructions.

  • You can include a message with your request and invite your colleague(s) to the meeting if they are available.

  • After that, the online system will send an email to you and your meeting partner(s) every time you request, confirm or cancel a meeting and you will also receive email requests from other participants.

  • Messages are also displayed in your Messages area.

  • To view and respond to your pending meetings, return to the homepage when you have logged in, or select 'pending meetings' on your ‘Schedule’ page.
