What is a braindate?

A braindate is a knowledge sharing conversation that participants can have one-on-one or in a group, on a topic of their choice. It takes place at live, virtual, and hybrid events.

Application zoom to create a topic
Create Braindate Topics

Complete your profile, then post one-on-one or group topics in the Topic Market.

Book braindates with others

Find topics that inspire you and propose times to meet (or join group braindates directly).

When it’s time to meet, join virtually or in person!

Learning Concierges (real humans—no bots here!) will be there to help participants set their intention for your events, discover the knowledge they can share with others, and find the right conversations to take part in.

Braindate for live events features high-touch experience design, complete with a custom in-person Braindate Lounge and dedicated team of onsite staff.

Braindate for virtual events features a uniquely “human” user journey, culminating in a seamlessly integrated video chat.

Braindate for hybrid events features the best of both worlds.

How It Works

After a decade of bringing peer learning opportunities around the world, we know it takes more than technology to create an unforgettable experience. We provide guidance and best practices around our 4 pillars to ensure a top-quality experience that resonates with your participants for years to come.

Community Activation

Design your Braindate experience—from promotion to execution—to ensure maximum impact and meaningful participant engagement.

Seamless Technology

We synchronize our tech experience with your vision for the participant experience, including full integrations with all of your tech partners, and meaningful engagement opportunities for the sponsors you love.

Event Experience

Whether onsite in an expo hall or on laptops all over the world, human-centric interaction is at the heart of the Braindate experience. We help you design and create an event that feels warm and welcoming to each participant —one that leads to inspiring conversations, and encourages new and valuable connections.

Analytics

Data tell an important story. Your story.

With access to your Braindate Organizer Space, you will have real time insights and results. We conclude each collaboration with a Braindate Final Report that responds to your original objectives. We also provide content and audience insights along with recommendations to help you plan for next year.

Choose the Braindate experience that fits your needs

Organizing a series of events for one client? Multiple events for communities? We have specially-crafted solutions for any context, all relying on our 4 pillars.

Produced by

Your Braindate Producer will lead the production, from helping you define a customized vision of success for your event (live, virtual, or hybrid) to implementing a tailored engagement strategy, with the support of Braindate’s team of Learning Concierges.

In Their Own Words

“The serendipitous ‘hallway conversations’ that you have while waiting for coffee (at a live event) aren’t possible when you attend a virtual event. Virtual braindates delivered on that… the experience was incredibly positive.”

Suzanne Fritz-Hanson
Sr. Group Creative Director, GPJ Experience Marketing - Participant

“The ability to connect with new people who bring new insights is powerful. My network has expanded and my understanding of who contributes to the industry helps me determine how I can be better and/or differentiated… I feel like I am part of a bigger community.”

Laura Leeper
Sr. Event Marketing Manager, Amazon - Participant

“Because of Braindate, I was able to come back to Montreal and have an art exhibition. I would have never thought that was possible. Where else can a connection like this be made? Where I could give something to someone and that we could form a real friendship.”

Lee Kim
Global Congress Lead at Pfizer - Participant

“Braindate truly enables our community to connect in a meaningful way. The interest and topic based networking allows participants to engage more rapidly in deeper conversation. It creates better human interactions that result in better business results.”

Anick Beaulieu
V.P. of Growth and Partnerships at C2 - Organizer

At C2 Montreal, I did five Braindates each day and uncovered millions of dollars worth of potential business. I had effortless, beautiful meetings with top CEOs. Normally, it might take me six months or a year of knocking on doors just to get in front of the decision-makers at these large companies…With braindating, it’s easy to connect and make an impression.”

Sébastien Lauzière
Sales Director, Flight Centre Travel Group - Participant

“One of the things I most appreciated about the in-person Braindate experience were the Learning Concierges…I had a dedicated concierge who introduced herself to me over email before the event. She was super helpful and guided me through setting up my first braindate, and even made an effort to meet up with me in person to see how my experience was going!”

Anna Chu
Senior Product Marketing Manager at Microsoft - Participant
