Invitation B2B Matchmaking
We are pleased to invite you to the International B2B Matchmaking Event, 19th of March at the Belgian Offshore Days in Ostend, Belgium.
Belgium is a front runner in offshore wind, with the first offshore wind park more than 10 years operational. By end of 2020 Belgium will have 2.262 MW installed capacity, and plans are to double this capacity in the years to come. Since 6 years, Belgian Offshore Cluster hosts the Belgian Offshore Days, a major B2B event for the offshore wind industry at the historical Wellington Racetrack in Ostend. The Belgian Offshore Days include a fair, several seminars and also the B2B Matchmaking Event supported by the Inn2POWER project.
Program of the B2B
11:30 - 11:45h Introduction
11:45 - 12:45h Bilateral meetings - morning session
12:45 - 13:30h Networking lunch
13:30 - 15:00h Bilateral meetings - afternoon session
Participation is free of charge, registration for the B2B is required, this allows you to request meetings with other participants of your choice. The registration will also offer you free access to the fair and seminars.
The upcoming years Belgium is preparing to extend its current 2.3 GW offshore wind capacity with 2 GW. For the whole North Sea Region 380 GW by 2050 seems both achievable and affordable provided countries collaborate with one another.
The next B2B Matchmaking Event supported by Inn2POWER will take place during the Belgian Offshore Days in Ostend on Thursday 19th March 2020. Registration is free of charge but registration is required. Registration for the B2B Matchmaking Event will be launched end of January 2020.

Related stakeholders like research institutions and public officials are also welcome to join.

It’s Back! The Successful B2B Matchmaking Event is Coming to Belgian Offshore Days 2020
The countdown to the Belgian Offshore Days 2020 has begun and the International B2B Matchmaking event, supported by Inn2POWER, will play a big part.
Belgian Offshore Days will be taking place in the coastal city of Ostend on the 18th and 19th of March - with Belgium being early pioneers of offshore wind, the location couldn’t be any more fitting. Belgium is making great strides towards a Net Zero future. By the end of this year, they will have 2.3 MW installed capacity from offshore wind electricity generation and have further plans to double this.
The International B2B Matchmaking event, which will run on the 19th March, is open to businesses throughout the EU, from innovative startups to large established companies, with vested interests in the offshore wind sector.
Multiple attendees and advantages all under one roof
Previous Matchmaking events have been greatly beneficial for past-attendees - thanks to the ‘speed-dating’ format, delegates are offered the opportunity to setup key, focussed meetings throughout the day with potential business partners. For two years since Inn2POWER began supporting B2B Matchmaking alongside the conference and exhibition event, we have seen 150 participants register and have facilitated over 260 one-to-one meetings!
There is no end of advantages to this event including the chance to meet various decision makers from like-minded organisations, gaining access to ideas and exciting collaboration opportunities as well as opening doors to new projects that could shape the future of offshore wind.
How do I register for the FREE B2B Matchmaking event?
And the best part of it all is that the event is FREE, all you need to do is register via the dedicated website below (where you can also get free access to the Belgium Offshore Days 2020 event and the seminars being held over the two days).
Registration is now open, and we’re delighted to announce that a range of International participants are signing up.
If you’re looking to meet a business that’s not already attending the Inn2POWER partners can help! Get in touch with the event organisers at the Blue Cluster or email your local project partners at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can then invite the business to attend and arrange an introduction for you when you visit.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
