It’s here folks! The One-on-One Partnering™ System for this year’s BIO Business Forum® and Exhibitor Partnering has officially launched! What does that mean? If you’re registered for the event, you’ll be receiving your login credentials shortly. If you’re not registered, you should do that now, so you can get in to the system. From there, you can start building your company’s profile, search for companies, and send your targeted meeting requests.
This year, we’re pleased to debut a variety of new and exciting features. The biggest of all being the addition of Exhibitors in the Partnering System. We’ll go into more detail about some key differences between the Business Forum and Exhibitor Partnering in a future post, but for now, take a look at some other new features.
- The new and improved Company Profile! There was a point in time when you had to complete 10 steps in order to add information about your company. How many are there now? Four! The change is not just about making it easier to complete and update your profile – it’s meant to consolidate the most important things about your company and allow your visitors to get the true breadth of what you do. At the end of the day, it’s not only about licensing projects, it’s about being able to list all the products and services, current and future, and the brand of your company’s work.
- The Delegate Profile becomes more relevant. For the first time ever, the information you add to your delegate profile can be carried over to a future One-on-One Partnering event. Plus, it’s been simplified, and you can add the networks you care about most.
- Search arrives in the Message Center. Sometimes, you need to find an email pretty quickly, especially when you’re onsite at the event. Voila! You can now search for companies in your messages. We think this will prove to be one of the handiest upgrades for our attendees.
We’ll be going into more detail about these new features in future posts, so please stay tuned! You can also reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments about the system.
