How It Works

Described as “speed dating” for business, Naturallia participants are matched for one-on-one meetings during forums on international trade, investment and business development.

Prior to the event, participants will complete a registration form and questionnaire to provide details on their company background and business objectives. Participants will then receive a Naturallia catalogue, request meetings with up to 20 companies listed in the catalogue, and are then matched using an advanced software application.

As a result, participants will have up to 14 pre-qualified 30 minute meetings based on one’s selection criteria, as well as countless networking opportunities throughout the duration of the conference. Naturallia 2015 will also include expert speakers, trade exhibits, industry tours and more.
