Braindate Lounge

$17,500 inclusive of goods and services tax (GST)

This is a unique opportunity to really make your mark at AIEC. We are looking for a partner who can help us promote Braindate to our attendees and take this activation to whole new level!

‘Braindating’ is a structured networking experience, where people with shared interests connect virtually to make meaningful connections and discuss topics of interest.

As a result of the success of our virtual Braindate events in 2020 and 2021, this year we will be offering a ‘hybrid’ Braindate experience as a central part of the peer-learning and knowledge-sharing opportunities that AIEC has to offer. It will a chance to make meaningful connections and have interesting conversations with people who share the same interests as you, in person or online.

A braindate can be either a one-on-one 30 minute conversation or a 45 minute group discussion. You connect on the Braindate marketplace where all topics and ideas are listed, and the actual braindates (virtual or in person) take place over two days of the conference (19 and 20 October), with a post-conference virtual-only day also planned for early to mid November.

The Braindate Lounge will be located within the Exhibition Hall. The space is based on approximately of 96 square metres. The design of the space will be the responsibility of the conference organiser, who will ensure there is appropriate and flexible seating arrangements for small and medium-sized groups to encourage discussion and networking.

The table below details the basic inclusions of this package, but we will be eager to work with you to further customise the space, and ensure you make the most of this exclusive opportunity.
