The Birth …
Must and Evenements d’Elles teams met in the context of a complicated COVID period where event business was looking for alternatives to help their customers to continue to exhibit, promote and make deals! Immediately they had the same vision: A B2B ecosystem needs to create community to continuously communicate, exchange, see and be seen whatever the situation. Nothing should prevent this community from progressing and developing business.
For us, the community should be hosted in an outstanding and unique digital venue, and with strong visual identity to stand out from the myriad of websites crowd and to make participants to feel being part of the community at a unique place! As the sense of being with a person at the same place is not possible online like on site B2B events, visuals become essential in digital as people look for user-experience that can help them to make a memorable digital journey and to motivate them to interact with others. This memorable journey should include, visiting booths to discover innovations building new relationships, attending conferences, e-meeting speakers and asking them questions, participating to workshops, playing games and being awarded.
This was the reason why we decided to create Must High-Tech digital market in 3D with multiple and colorful halls opened 24/7, where High-Tech community can e-visit from anywhere and come back any time, to connect, exhibit, network, develop business, e-meet existing connections and find new ones thanks to Must matchmaking powered by AI. So, a lively digital marketplace with permanent exhibitors, live conferences, trainings, workshops and speed dating sessions; a great digital marketplace for manufacturers and their employees, academics and their students, sellers and buyers, researchers everywhere in the world can collaborate on R&D projects, where startups can find partners in one click, companies can continuously increase their pipeline of leads and investors can have more visibility on their potential next investment!

What is the benefit of a digital marketplace?
Businesses and customers alike seek convenience and a reliable place where they can exchange and transact in a secure way, and that is what Must High-Tech marketplace can deliver. It adds a lot of value to identify relevant partners (customers, suppliers, investors) and develop business with them in such global and highly fragmented market. In fact, currently there is not a global platform tool to find and connect all these ecosystem players in a global, efficient, and trusted manner.
By creating this venue and tools to exhibit, connect and network, Must Digital High-Tech marketplace gives access to and transparency over clients that they would never have had, so it opens quite different markets and bigger opportunity through a disruptive community platform approach. Especially, due to their limited size, Start-ups and SMEs are lacking resources and competencies in some domains, which limits their efficiency as a result. They can tremendously benefit from Must High-Tech marketplace.
We make this marketplace lively by Incorporating regular attractions: Live conferences, speed dating sessions, workshops etc will stimulate interactions, increase exchanges and transactions. Create multiple and continuous communication channels among all the players (i.e between exhibitors and visitors) will highly stimulate the ecosystem interactivity and creativity, increase the number of opportunities and transactions while decreasing the cost of those transactions.
Isn’t this what a Social Media such as Linkedin offers ?
There are similarities but Must High-tech Expo is digital marketplace, with a permanent exhibition where companies can exhibit their products and innovations 24/7, with communication tools like on social networks! It is dedicated to support the high-tech ecosystem, when traditional social networks are more to connect people and help them to achieve their professional objectives (e.g. LinkedIn) or exchange messages via advanced messaging tools (e.g. slack)
Isn’t this what a high-tech in person tradeshow offers?
Almost, but Must Digital High-Tech marketplace offers an online and permanent Tradeshow where you can connect, communicate, network, visit booths, attend conferences or watch replays every day, 24/7, rather than 3 days on site tradeshow per year. It aims to be the marketplace to help high-tech community to reinvent their way to interact and operate, by facilitating transactions among ecosystem players and lower drastically the cost of those transactions.
