Business Matchmaking FAQs

Collider Management Group is a Women-owned business and offers an effective meeting system, Pitch and Match, to match your needs to those of other participants, and then arrange a meeting with just a few clicks in your browser.

Once you’re logged in, click on the “Agenda” tab to see each GFTG meeting day broken down into 20-minute time slots. Use these to connect with fellow participants at designated meeting spaces within the venue.

Meeting Zones have numbered tables available and exclusively reserved for Pitch & Match users.

If you have purchased your entrance ticket through our Eventbrite process, then we will automatically add you to the Pitch & Match system.

PLEASE NOTE: The email used to register your Eventbrite ticket is the one the Pitch & Match system will assign to your identity.

Once the system is live (typically 2-4 weeks prior to the conference) you will receive a notification with the login details. This can take up to 48 hours from new Eventbrite registrations to Pitch & Match activation, but as we get nearer the event we will be doing this with increased urgency – updating the system regularly every day.

It’s FREE to all participants of Go For the Greens!

You can make as many meeting requests as you like, and accept as many as you can fit in. The only restriction is that you can only fill the total number of available slots on your agenda for the two days.

GFTG Pitch & Match typically goes live 2-4 weeks before the conference.

Once live, we import new registrations into the system regularly. This typically means within 24hrs of purchasing your ticket to GFTG you should receive an email with your log in details.

Occasionally, spam filters can sideline genuine emails but to help get our important emails through we suggest you whitelist emails from Leyla@collider-us.com

If you have not purchased a ticket through Eventbrite but have access to GFTG as part of a sponsor package – or if you haven’t received anything from us – please contact us at Leyla@collider-us.com with details.

Simply log in to the Pitch & Match system – following the above link – and find your potential meeting candidate under the “ATTENDEES” tab.

Here you can search for people or companies using the keyword text box or using the more advanced search options.

Once you find the person, you want to meet, you can see their availability and mutually suggest a meeting in one of the many timeslots.

Corporate and large organizations representatives have assigned company meeting tables, so when you request a meeting with a corporate representative the table will be automatically assigned.

If you propose a B2B meeting with another WBE, using the text field, suggest “matchmaker lounge open tables”. Just check in with the matchmaker host and we will help you find each other. You can also suggest a different location by typing in details of where to meet (just be specific to ensure the other person can find you).

Your “Agenda” tab will help you locate where you need to be.

Should you have any problems, we have staff able to assist you at the Registration area.

Completing your profile page with as much information as possible will enable you to network and promote yourself more effectively.

Your preferences or areas of business interest for GFTG will enable potential business partners to find you easily, select you from the list and propose a meeting. Likewise, if everyone does the same, you’ll be able to find the best potential clients or business partners.

If you choose to complete your contact details with your mobile telephone number then this will give us the ability to be able to contact you during the event, say, should we need to change the meeting point at the last minute or we are wondering where you are since your match started five minutes ago.

Once the meeting between you has been confirmed, then you should be able to see the other person’s email address.

If they have provided their phone number on their profile page, then you should be able to see this also.

Well, here’s the thing: If the system operated simultaneously across two parallel universes you would indeed be able to request a meeting with yourself.

Imagine the conversation.

As we lack that technology at the moment, you won’t show up in any search results if, when logged into the P&M system, you go looking for yourself. Fear not, this is normal.

Please note the matchmaking meetings run concurrently with the other event programming.

Please take care to be at your match on time.
