"I would like to thank SIAL China for providing a platform for us to meet new friends from the meat industry. I would also like to thank the Match Me team for all the services. The team members assisted me in making the itinerary from the perspective of the visitor, and I am very satisfied with it. We will continue to follow SIAL China in the future!." 


"The Match Me team provided excellent services. It also provided innovative, personalized services during negotiations between big buyers, which helped our company to improve efficiency. The time saved could be used for in-depth discussions with potential exhibitors, which gave our company ample time for bidding later on and thus generating indirect benefits. Best wishes to SIAL Shanghai!"
