Networking in the THE TIRE COLOGNE app
The new networking offers a wide range of opportunities to make contact with industry experts, exhibitors, buyers and decision-makers. This way, you achieve efficient networking of all trade show participants on the go in the trade fair app. With both known and new contacts, the exchange of contact information is possible anytime and anywhere from the time the app is made available.
How do I participate in networking on the app?
The trade fair app is already available for download in the App Store three months before the event. Download the trade fair app and select the networking icon in the navigation menu to log in with your Koelnmesse account credentials. If you have registered and are also in possession of a valid trade fair ticket, you will automatically be taken to the networking area within the app.
In the networking area, you can edit your profile directly via the profile icon, add a photo of yourself and maintain your interests. The more complete your profile is, the more you attract the interest of other networking participants.
If necessary, you also have the option of deactivating networking via your profile area.
In the trade fair app, you will find four areas in networking:
- an overview of relevant contacts
- pending contact requests
- existing contacts
- and your chat messages in the overview.
If you have fully maintained your networking profile, the app will suggest users with potential relevance to you. The people with the highest relevance are listed first in the overview. As relevance decreases, so does the ranking in the overview.
It is up to you, whether you let yourself be guided by the suggested contacts when networking or search specifically for people yourself by searching for names, positions or companies.
Have you found someone interesting? Then write a chat message or send a contact request directly. If the person accepts your request, then you get access to the contact information of your new contact!
That way you can collect valuable industry contacts in the trade fair app, up to three months before the physical trade fair.
Networking at the trade fair
The trade fair app offers you the opportunity to scan your counterpart directly at the trade fair using the integrated QR code scanner and to network with them.
Simply open the QR code icon within the trade show app and scan the networking QR code from your counterpart's smartphone. The scan generates an automatic contact request and allows you to exchange contact information quickly and easily on site.
