While Gamescom is still some time away, it doesn’t hurt to plan your meetings well ahead. Check out Gamesmatch if you’re looking for a free tool to schedule quick 20 minute speed dates with potential business partners.
Participating is a breeze. You just have to register and publish your organisational focus and your collaboration wishes. The better your profile the more meeting requests you will receive. After this you can send meeting requests to selected participants of your choice. A few days prior to the event, the exact time and place for your meeting will be scheduled. You will receive an email with your meetings schedule or you can always check it online or via the app.
Last year, seven Belgian game companies (from a total of over 200 companies) participated in the meetings so let’s try and do even better this year. We’re quite sure you will find some people that are more than worth your time. Remember you’ll meet and greet people at high speed, so make sure to do a proper follow up when the event is over.
Registrations are accepted until August 15. You’ll have better chances at succesful meetings when you arrange them a little earlier though, so head over to the website and put that networking magic to good use.
