Online sessions and networking with B2Match


You can participate in all of the online sessions on the B2Match platform. B2Match virtual stages allow the audience to follow the web streams, ask questions and chat. Also, the on-site sessions and discussions in Naples will be streamed to the B2Match. The platform is excellent for networking, as it has a contact directory of all participants and the possibility to schedule 1-to-1 meetings online.

We highly recommend also the participants who attend only the Naples conference or regional events to use B2Match actively. That’s how you can reach the online audience, and the platform is our main communication channel throughout the weeks.
