BME International Matchmaking

Since 2009 we have brought buyers and suppliers together in over 4,000 matchmakings. With a success rate of over 28%, 1 out of 3 conversations leads to a result. The focus of the B2B matchmaking is on production materials and services - in Europe, Asia and North Africa. 

BME has launched platform to support your sourcing activities worldwide. After registering free of charge for a matchmaking service, buyers can express their needs by filling out the RFI questionnaire.


Our partners on-site prequalify suppliers and service providers, who publish their profiles on the platform, in commodity groups. Buyers are then able to search the platform for suitable suppliers that meet their individual requirements. Supplying companies also have access to buyer profiles and can invite buyers that match their competences.


Based on your matches, you can decide which events you ultimately want to register for. The final step is to schedule your B2B meetings by BME. You will receive your individual plan prior to the event.


More than 110 buyers from 8 countries have already signed up on the platform. We have also received over 270 registrations to BME B2B matchmaking events planned in 2023! 

First steps to participate in events 2023
