Keymeets Press release 29.10.2020

 

Keymeets arranges meetings in a world where meetings should be avoided – unique Finnish innovation brings together potential business contacts.

 As the corona pandemic began to postpone trade events, Finnish trade show company Messuille Oy created a tailor-made contact service to keep international business going. The service, Keymeets, is a unique innovation that has had a promising start this autumn.

Keymeets is the first service to integrate all the processes of successful contact creation, from selection-based searches up to moderated virtual meetings. “The pilot project has been well received”, says Keymeets project manager Micaela Hagström. “Our focused process leading to online meetings has been a positive surprise to many who are tired of common B2B lead lists.”

Keymeets aims to create the connection between the right business partners: sellers, buyers, distributors. Potential contacts are located and hand-picked using a targeted online campaign and the extensive contact network of the experienced Keymeets team. The most promising ones are contacted and brought together with the client via online meets moderated by Keymeets. The feedback from those interested in the service proves there is a demand for this kind of service.

“Due to the current global situation, it is very hard to get contacts. We’ve normally counted on trade shows and seminars for new leads. Keymeets could fill this role.”
– Jaakko Larma, Teknoscale

“A fresh alternative to consultant services, Keymeets sounds like a new, interesting method for approaching new markets in this challenging situation. We value their knowledge of target countries and local contacts.”
– Maija Salmela, Allaway

 “Keymeets hits right on the spot with a business development model that has high potential: the acquisition of new customers in exceptional circumstances. Finding the right contacts and getting to the right tables to talk with decision-makers is particularly hard right now, when trade events and visits are not possible. To a great extent, the success of Keymeets depends on how relevant are the online meetings they can arrange.”
– Juha Laiho, Fennosteel

Keymeets offers quality, not quantity. Finding the right partners and bringing them together is the defined goal. Targets are set together with the client – if these are not met, then the client will be compensated. In this case, only the initial planning phase will be charged.

Business Finland has supported Keymeets as an innovation to support international trade. Keymeets partners include C2 Advertising for productization and design, and LinkedIn for millions of potential contacts. Among them, future business partners are just waiting to be found.

Keymeets takes on corona by creating international trade contacts

International trade is facing serious challenges: businesses cannot function without contacts and partners, and trade events cannot be arranged due to the pandemic. Keymeets is a service that provides a solution by bringing trade partners together. This brand-new service is provided by the experienced Finnish trade show experts Messuille Oy.

Keymeets helps companies looking for international buyers and new distributors. Keymeets aims for quality, not quantity: the goal is to find the right contacts and to bring them together with the right business partners. “We are headhunters for perfect matches”, says CEO Mikko Nummi.

In a nutshell, Keymeets takes the client’s stories to the world and arranges quality meetings. In practice, this is achieved through targeted contact searches, meticulous selections, and moderated virtual meetings.

The need for this new service was, of course, partly triggered by Covid-19, which has strongly affected the event industry forming the core of Messuille Oy’s company activities. So, it was only natural to take the company’s expertise and find new ways to implement it. A decade of solid international trade show experience means that the Messuille Oy team knows people, companies and industries. All of this know-how can be used to help the clients at Keymeets.

“Our industry is facing a challenge. And companies looking for international trade partners are also facing a challenge. Keymeets helps to solve both problems”, says Nummi. “We are happy to provide a solution for ourselves and to use this innovation to keep the wheels of international trade turning. Right now, economies need all the help they can get.”

Keymeets kicks off with two services, each with their own merits. The Unique Keymeets service offers moderated individual one-to-one online meetings with hand-picked relevant buyers and distributors. The United Keymeets service allows a company to team up with others, whose expertise complements their own, and to meet potential buyers together in a moderated group meeting.

“There is clearly a demand for a service like this”, says Nummi. “We launched our web site and received the first requests before we even told anyone.”

It takes two to make a successful deal. It often takes a third to bring these two together. This is the role for which Keymeets is more than ready.
