B2B Strategic Matchmaking
October and November Appointments Available Now
Following the success of our 2020 Annual Summit Virtual Matchmaking event, we have expanded the program to include more appointments in October and November! B2B matchmaking is all about making the right connections and initiating relationships. Our B2B service matches A&D suppliers with OEMs and Tier-1 suppliers seeking to do business with specific types of products or services.
In lieu of in-person meetings, virtual matchmaking appointments will take place using Webex teleconferencing. Appointments are available on a first come first serve bases and will be hosted throughout the months of October and November 2020. We will maintain the process of pre-screening suppliers and only schedule appointments with matching OEMs and Tier-1 suppliers that are seeking their specific types of products or services.
Please note that appointments are scheduled based on target capabilities sought by the OEMs, and only Southern California-based A&D suppliers are eligible. There is no guarantee that you will receive appointments with OEMs if your company’s capabilities are not on an OEM’s target list, or if your company is located outside of the target area. Appointments will be scheduled in the order registrations are received. Participating OEMs and Tier-1 suppliers are listed to the right on this page and updated daily as we receive more registrations. To prepare for your appointments with OEMs, please watch our B2B Do’s and Don’ts Webinar below and review the FAQ on B2B matchmaking for more information on how the matchmaking process work and what to expect from your meetings.
