What is Braindate?
Braindate helps you tap into the experiences and expertise of your fellow attendees at ALTA SPRINGBOARD. It’s an easy way to connect and learn from each other through conversations about things you care about. Share your knowledge and book one-on-one or group conversations called braindates with other participants on the Braindate platform, then meet that individual(s) in-person at the event!
What is a one-on-one braindate?
A one-on-one braindate is a 30-minute conversation that you book with another attendee at ALTA SPRINGBOARD.
If you see a 1:1 topic on the Braindate platform that interests you, you can request the author of the topic for a meeting, by proposing times to meet. Once the author accepts a proposed time, you meet with them for your braindate in the Braindate Lounge located in Grand Salon A – E (2nd floor) of the Marriott Tampa Water Street Hotel.
What is a group braindate?
A group braindate is a 45-minute collaborative conversation with up to 5 people.
If you see a group braindate topic on the platform that interests you, you can immediately join by reserving a spot. The braindate takes place at the time proposed by the author of the topic. Once it’s time for your braindate, you meet with your group in the Braindate Lounge located in Grand Salon A – E (2nd floor) of the Marriott Tampa Water Street Hotel.
The group braindate format is best if you’d like to hear multiple perspectives on a single topic. The author of the topic acts as the moderator, making sure that everyone in the group is able to contribute to the conversation.
Why is Braindate different from networking?
Getting to know people at events can be difficult: time is limited, and trying to network virtually can feel uncomfortable. Braindate gives you a platform to explore and share specific knowledge and experiences, so that you can have more authentic conversations with new people who share common interests. It gives you direct access to the collective genius of your fellow attendees
How does Braindate work?
Post a braindate topic about something that you’re interested in discussing in the Topic Marketplace. Attendees who want to dive into your topic with you can then send you an invitation to meet! Explore topics that interest you with the Search, Sort and Filter functions, then send invitations for one-on-one braindates or join group braindates directly.
