FAQ

What is the Hosted Buyer Program in a nutshell?

The Hosted Buyer Program is an assisted networking format tailored for healthtech buyers and solution providers to facilitate highly efficient in-person, 15-minute meetings for real business interactions. The Hosted Buyer Program is based on double opt-in matchmaking where participants set up their own meetings by sending and accepting meeting requests within the platform. The hosted buyer platform offers a personalized experience to help schedule meetings by empowering participants with intelligent recommendations and search and filter functions to choose whom they wish to meet.

How does the Hosted Buyer Program work?

1. Apply to participate in the Hosted Buyer Program.

2. Get feedback on your application.

3. If accepted as hosted buyer, attend the event for free and enjoy support and assistance from us in advance.

4. Wait for the hosted buyer platform to go live and set up your networking profile.

5. Request and accept at least five meetings with interesting solution providers using our hosted buyer platform.

6. Show up at health.tech, take the meetings, connect with the most relevant healthtech companies and walk away with critical insights and new business partners.

What do I get?

You receive a complimentary all-access ticket for health.tech 2024 and access to the Hosted Buyer's Lunch - an exclusive meeting with peers only. We commit to providing complete attention to ensure a smooth and efficient event attendance at your convenience. Finally, for the first 100 hosted buyers we will reimburse up to €750 (incl. VAT) of their travel and hotel costs.

What type of vendors will I be meeting?

Vendors able to request meetings with you are providing healthtech solutions and services. This encompasses vendors attending including our valuable partners, exhibiting startups and scaleups as well as consultants within the health sector.

How will I be able to browse and vet the vendors and schedule meetings?

Based on the vendors' and the buyers' networking profiles, a list of vendor representatives is recommended based on relevance to you. The list contains information about each solution provider including their name, job title and company. In addition to your suggested matches, you can search by keyword or filter profiles by job role and/or areas of interest and intents. Both parties have to agree for a meeting to be confirmed. Simply click ‘Connect' and then 'Suggest meeting' on a solution provider's profile to initiate a request. If the vendor accepts, they will choose a mutually available time to book the meeting. If you receive a meeting request, you can accept, decline or reschedule the meeting, allowing you maximum flexibility.

When will I be able to schedule meetings with vendors?

The hosted buyer platform will launch up to three weeks prior to health.tech 2024. By participating in the Hosted Buyer Program, you agree to be available to send, receive and accept meeting requests as of this launch date. Meetings can be scheduled and rescheduled any time until and even during health.tech 2024.

When will the hosted buyer meetings take place?

The hosted buyer meetings will take place during the two conference days on 5-6 June 2024 based on the conference's opening hours in a dedicated meeting area on the show floor. When the hosted buyer platform launches up to three weeks prior to the event, participants will be able to manage their availability. Since these are double opt-in meetings, the appointments take place at times when both parties are available.

When do I need to be available?

You commit to attend health.tech 2024 on 5-6 June 2024. Of course, you can customize your time on-site and schedule meetings according to your availabilities and needs.
