SIM São Paulo is all about connecting people and making new opportunities. As well as the hundreds of shows and over 70 panels, debates and workshops, the event also gives you the chance to meet with music professionals from all over the world.
Since its first edition, the speed-meetings have become a major success, with the 10-minute pre-scheduled business encounters already proving themselves to be a practical means for generating business opportunities for the many buyers and sellers at the event.
This year, in addition to the speed-meetings with professionals invited by SIM São Paulo, the Pro-Area will also let badge holders hold meetings between themselves.
In the Virtual PRO-AREA, all PRO-BADGE holders will have access to the scheduling system in which they can connect with other professionals and expand their networking. Here's how it works:
42 music buyers from both Brazil and abroad are confirmed for the private speed-meetings. They will take place in the Debates Room at the Centro Cultural São Paulo (CCSP), from December Thursday 6th to Saturday 8th, between 11am and 1pm. Each day will see the participation of 14 guests; the complete list is online at the Virtual PRO-AREA where you can find possible partners fro your project and request a meeting. But don’t forget, time is of the essence as each professional has only 12 meetings available, 10 minutes each.
For the first time at SIM São Paulo, open speed meetings will be an ideal opportunity to connect personally with new business partners. These will take place at the PRO-AREA of the event, at CCSP, between the 6th and the 8th, from 11am to 6pm. Just enter the Virtual PRO-AREA, search the profiles for a likely candidate and request a 20 minute meeting. You suggest the day and time and the system tells you which tables are available. Then you wait for the meeting confirmation and the possibility of some good deals.
Keep your profile always up-to-date at the Virtual PRO-AREA, with photos, links, contact details and a decent biography in at least Portuguese and English, highlighting the strengths of your project.
