For the first time, our annual conference will use the Braindate app to help participants connect. This interactive platform provides a unique collaborative learning experience that transforms “networking” into meaningful knowledge exchange opportunities.

Whether you are a participant, an exhibitor or a sponsor, you can complete a profile then post one-on-one or group topics in the Topic Market. You will be able to connect through the chat feature before, during, and after the conference.
