What's a Hosted-buyer program?

Hosted Buyer Program is a model for events to guarantee attendees (VIPs, Sponsors, or attendees) pre-qualified, relevant meetings. 

It usually involves a β€˜white-glove’ concierge treatment to the attendees that opt into the program, where the event organizer will help facilitate meetings on their behalf.

How to arrange a meeting between two participants at your event

  1. Go to the admin panel (manager.brella.io).
  2. Click on "People."
  3. Select "Attendees" and select the attendee you wish to facilitate the meeting for. Once you have the profile open, check the '"Show empty networking slots" box. You'll see the networking availability the attendee has set for herself.
  4. After that, you can click on a time slot and search for the person you'd like to set up the meeting with. Then you'll be asked whether you want to confirm this meeting or not.
  5. If you are sure, click "Confirm Meeting," the meeting will be scheduled and, therefore, will automatically get accepted.
