Events

We call it matchmaking - our customers: ”Nice to meet you.“

There is nothing to replace a face-to-face meeting and a direct exchange of information and genuine insights.

So get to know your new customers directly through the IPD. The input is only minimal for you, the benefits all the greater.

Direct b2b talks at trade fairs and on buying missions.

The IPD uses targeted matchmaking to provide you with sustainable business contacts to reliable suppliers. For this we organise B2B meetings at visits to trade fairs in Europe and sourcing trips to our partner countries.

In this way buyers can find out about the product quality and production conditions directly and establish important contacts. This transparency is the basis for long-term successful business relations.

Our workshops and seminars provide you with solid information on markets and industries. Acquire the know-how you need to access new growth markets.
