Hybrid Braindate

Introducing Braindate Hybrid

A solution to bridge the live/virtual gap that will help you bring your people together to learn from and connect with each other, no matter their location.

Categories in Hybrid Events, News & Features

As more organizers are planning a hybrid event, one of the biggest questions that’s been on the top of their minds is: How can we successfully bridge the gap between people who are onsite and those who are online? 

This question goes beyond creating great, engaging content to the heart of why many people attend events: to learn from their peers, to experience a sense of community, and to form meaningful relationships that might propel them in their professional and personal lives. 

To support our community of partners, clients and users, we’ve designed a unified experience that meaningfully unites the two audiences: to create a coherent experience where every participant has the opportunity to form valuable connections with and learn from each other, no matter their location. 

We’re excited to introduce you to our newest product: Braindate Hybrid is a solution that will help organizers redefine and reimagine great learning and connection experiences in a hybrid setting.

What is Braindate Hybrid?

About Braindate:

Braindate is a web app that fosters knowledge-sharing conversations during global events and conferences, as well as inside Fortune 500 companies.

Since a decade, our award-winning technology has given the opportunity to nearly 1 million users from around the world to learn from each other and form valuable connections based on shared interests and challenges. Participants at events use Braindate to book one-one-one and group meetings, from a crowd-sourced market of topics.

With Braindate Hybrid, virtual and onsite attendees participating in a hybrid event can book meetings with each other and come together as one community. It is designed to empower attendees to tap into the knowledge of all the participants attending, whether that be in person or virtually.   

How does Braindate Hybrid work? 

Once participants at your hybrid event log into Braindate Hybrid, they will be able to see all attendees signed up to braindate, their location (virtual or onsite), and book them for 1:1 or group conversations, on subjects they’d like to discuss. 

How onsite x virtual participants interact:

Onsite and virtual participants can book each other for 1:1 discussions that take place virtually, via video chat on the Braindate platform.

How onsite participants connect with each other:

Onsite participants can book each other for 1:1 and group conversations that take place onsite at the Braindate Lounge (i.e. the area dedicated to braindating at your event’s physical location).
