HOW DOES THE MATCHMAKER WORK?

Step 1 - Register & Apply for Meetings

Step 2 – Stay Tuned for Your Matchmaking Appointment(s) Confirmation 

Step 3 – Prepare & Attend

This event registration includes questions about your business. We’ll use the information you provide to match you with up to three agencies that are likely to buy what you sell. Appointments are about 10 minutes long, so do your best to prepare by researching the agencies in advance and updating your marketing materials and  elevator pitch. 

Please note:

  • Registration for matchmaking appointments scheduled in advance closes Thursday, March 19, 2020.
  • Meetings will be scheduled on a first-come-first-served and best fit basis, followed by a waiting list.
  • Registrations received after March 19 will be added to the waitlist and scheduled contingent on cancelations prior to the event, or availability on-site in the case of no-shows for scheduled appointments. 
  • Your meetings may not be consecutive. We’ll do our best but plan to stick around a bit and enjoy some networking and refreshments.
  • Participating agencies may not buy what you sell. You are still welcome to attend the event to network with resource partners, agencies and other businesses.
  • Appointment schedules will be emailed about one week in advance of the event.
