HARDWARECON IS EXPANDING WITH PAIRAKEET

What is Pairakeet?

A virtual event platform that focuses on creating branded digital experiences to maximize Sponsor ROI and enhance the attendee experience.

1-ON-1 CURATED MATCHMAKING

Nothing gets deals done like a one-on-one meeting with a well vetted target client.  By partnering with Pairakeet, Hardware Con offers a unique way to optimize your time and money.  

As a Seller at Hardware Con, you get to schedule meetings with the Buyers at Hardware Con who are actively looking for your services.

How It Works

  1. All attendees will be sent invites to join our matchmaking platform when they register as potential buyers.
  2. Attendees will then be prompted to enter their information about what products and services they are looking for at the conference.
  3. Buyers will then be matched with Sponsors and companies offering those services that have purchased a Seller Side Matchmaking Ticket. Those potential Buyer clients will then also show up for the Sellers when they search for buyers that meet their requirements.
  4. Either side can then request a meeting during the conference and, upon acceptance, Pairakeet will match available schedules and arrange the meeting online to Get Deals Done.
