Match Making Networking Tool

Grip - Intelligent Event Matchmaking Software

Grip - Intelligent event matchmaking software

Available to all registered attendees, Grip provides you a matchmaking platform to easily connect with your customers who are attending the event.

Grip login information will be emailed to you. Please email anthoy@stocexpo.com if you have not received this.

User Experience - The anonymous swiping system has multiple benefits. While being fun and addictive, it gives you the security and power to choose who you wish to meet without any unwanted messages.

Artificial Intelligence - The cards recommended to you are fed by Grips' AI, which constantly learns who you want to meet based on your previous swipes.

Mutual Interest - All swipes on Grip are anonymous. That means you will only get notified of a “Handshake” when both you and the other person have swiped “interested”.

Privacy - Your profile is only visible to other users when both people have agreed to connect with one another. Therefore, you can control who can message you.
