How Hospitality Match Works

MATCH. MEET. REPEAT.

Make plans now to be a part of Hospitality Match 2017 taking place May 15-17 at The Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston, SC. It's a unique opportunity to make meaningful connections through one-to-one meetings and networking events in a relaxed resort setting.

Hospitality Match will bring together key decision-makers from top design firms, purchasing companies and hotel groups with relevant FF&E suppliers in 20-minute, one-to-one meetings. Like speed dating, this format eliminates the legwork of identifying prospects, making initial contact and shuffling schedules to arrange a meeting.

But unlike speed dating, Hospitality Match guarantees that relationships will grow. Suppliers will participate in the screening process, and qualified buyers/specifiers will be chosen based on their needs and interests. (In other words, suppliers and buyers/specifiers will be matched before they officially meet.) A full slate of seminars and networking activities will round out this event, making fast friends of the designers, purchasing agents, specifiers and suppliers who are selected to participate at Hospitality Match 2017.
