Configuring Registration

b2match offers powerful features for setting up an event registration. Event organisers can adapt the participants registration process so that is suits their needs.

Go to Configuration - Registration Settings and set a Registration Time Frame. This determines the time frame in which the attendees can register for your event.

Make sure you set participant types, organisation types and areas of activity.

Classifications help participants in finding business partners faster and easier. The better the pre-defined classification, the easier participants can find the 'needle in the haystack'. A set of well-chosen classifications (areas of activities, participant types, organisation types, marketplace) shortens a long participant list of 200 profiles to 10-20 relevant and matching profiles. Fast and promising search results will increase the booking figures considerably. Click here for a list of detailed classifications.

Participant Types

Participant types are used to group specific participants and it will be requested during the registration process. This is a simple way to categorize your participants.

Typical examples of Participant Types: Buyer and Seller, Investor and Start-Up, Exhibitor and Visitor.

Let's say you are organising a Conference for Game Development. This means that you could have 6 different types of participants attending your event.
