The networking bonus

You can book a networking upgrade with your conference ticket (€50 plus VAT). It allows you to attend the evening reception on 16 April in the Verti Music Hall and gives you access to the networking tool. You can use the networking tool to get in touch with other conference participants and send appointment requests.

We have compiled a small FAQ on this subject.

Can I still book the networking upgrade at a later date?

If you did not book the upgrade when you made your initial booking, you can do so later using the link in your booking confirmation.

How do I find other participants in the Networking Tool?

The list of all participants is sorted alphabetically by last name. You can also sort by company name or by which profiles are new to the system (because the person recently signed up). You can also filter by company type or sector.

How will I be found?

Just as you want to find other participants, others want to find you. When you log in to the networking tool for the first time, your blank profile is displayed directly. We recommend that you fill this out as meaningfully as possible and include relevant keywords. You can also add your LinkedIn profile and your company website.

Will there be an attendee list?

When the networking portal launches, all people who have booked the networking upgrade will be visible and filterable there. However, we will of course still publish a complete list in advance: On Friday, April 12, we will provide you with a list of participants sorted by company in the conference portal. Then you can also use the search to look specifically for people you see in the list.

I have received a message from a person via the tool, how can I reply?

You will receive the message with the sender, but the sender's email is stored masked. If you simply reply to the mail in your e-mail program, the address of your counterpart will be visible in the new e-mail and you can simply continue the discussion outside the platform by e-mail. If you want to get to know your counterpart better first, you will also find a link to his or her short profile in the binder of the e-mail. To access this, however, you must be logged in to the conference portal.

Can I see if I have already contacted a person?

Yes, we have implemented this function for you. A small letter icon indicates that you have already contacted the person. If you click on the profile, you will also see the exact date and time.

Can I use the networking tool to schedule meetings?

No, the networking tool is intentionally not a partnering solution. We are putting it in your hands to make appointments with other conference attendees before, at or after the conference.

What would be a good meeting place at bcc?

We will have a bunch of numbered seating areas and tables available on level C. However, you will not be able to reserve seats in advance, as this furniture will not be sufficient to hold all meetings on site, but can at least serve as a contact point. There will also be exhibition stands and catering areas on this level. We will provide a floor plan together with the launch of the networking tool. BIO Deutschland has also placed two tables in the lobby in level B where you can charge your smartphone.
