Matchmaking: Scientifically pairing buyers with sellers

Clarion Gaming has confirmed the development of ICE Connect, an invitation only Executive Summit programme that uses algorithms to scientifically match qualified, senior level decision-makers who have both buying power and immediate requirements, with industry leading solution providers.

Ice Connect Europe

ICE Connect is being curated by California-based Quartz Events, which was acquired by Clarion in 2020 and is the fastest growing producer of invitation-only executive summits. ICE Connect will run 21 June – 25 June (Europe focus) and 28 June – 2 July (North America focus), with a repeat of this schedule taking place in the Autumn.

Using the ICE Connect model, qualified delegate attendees from operating companies complete a detailed registration questionnaire, which drills into specific industry challenges and upcoming project needs. The model, which has been successfully developed by Quartz, uses highly sophisticated matching algorithms, ranking and scheduling software, to match the operators with relevant, industry-leading solution providers who can solve their challenges and help them run their operations more efficiently. As a result, both delegates and solution providers spend 100% of their time in meaningful and productive meetings. In addition, Clarion will be producing a world-class ‘solutions-focused’ educational programme

From a solution provider standpoint every detail is handled by the ICE Connect team, with a scheduled programme issued three weeks ahead of the event, and a PDF meetings’ agenda and contact database provided a fortnight before the event ‘opens’.

This represents a highly efficient way for sellers to connect with senior, serious and relevant buyers. The Clarion strategy moving forward is to develop the ICE Connect model and align it with the commitment to live events.

Registration for ICE Connect is now open. ICE Connect Europe; 21 – 25 June 2021

ICE Connect North America; 28 June – 2 July 2021
