I was lucky to get a few words with Stefano Benard from DIM, one year following his first Speed Matching experience. Here is what he had to say:
Q. MIPIMWorld: Why did you choose to participate in the Speed Matching session?
A. Stefano Benard: Dim is willing to develop quickly its retail concept stores and after several year as a Mapic vistor it was obvious for me that Speed Matching would give us fast and strong visibility to the retail world.
Q. MIPIMWorld: What part of the session did you find most useful?
A. Stefano Benard: The networking drink just following the different speeches was fantastic! It gave me the opportunity to exchange with lots of various different retail actors.
Q. MIPIMWorld: What were your impressions immediately following the session?
A. Stefano Benard: I found it exciting and really effective with lots of contacts!
Q. MIPIMWorld: One year later…have you kept in touch with any of your “matches”?
A. Stefano Benard: Yes! The most interesting being contacts I made in Ukraine and in India.
Stefano will be back this year at MAPIC Speed Matching and hopes to meet more master franchisee contacts.
