The INDABA online diary and matchmaking system is a sophisticated business tool geared towards connecting the right exhibitors with the right buyers. The technologically advanced tool will once again be available to all registered exhibitors, buyers and delegates attending INDABA 2016.
So technologically proficient is this platform, users can track meetings, search hosted buyers’ activity and show buyers profile to ensure that one is indeed meeting the right person.
“The online diary and matchmaking programme is unrivalled in its business offering and enhances the overall experience of INDABA by allowing exhibitors and buyers to set up meetings in advance, optimising the number of exhibitor and buyer connections,” says Sthembiso Dlamini, Acting Chief Executive Office of South African Tourism.
“Let’s not forget that the success of INDABA lies in our promise to exhibitors that they will meet the right buyer at INDABA thus ensuring meaningful business opportunities are made and business interests are fulfilled,” explains Dlamini.
But, cautions Dlamini, exhibitors need to be quick on their feet when registrations open if they want to secure times with the buyers as diary times get filled up quickly.
INDABA 2015 saw the number of meetings conducted spike to 29 058, an increase of 69 percent from the previous year. Buyers and exhibitors praised the efficiency and accuracy of the online diary and matchmaking system for being such an effective business enabling tool.
