Message from the President and Chief Executive Officer

New This Year: Braindate

What is a Braindate?

You are coming to CBIE to meet great people and learn about new things. But how do you spark those meaningful conversations? It all starts with a Braindate.

Braindates are about sharing knowledge; they are one-on-one or small group conversations around an attendee-generated topic that you book with other participants while you’re at CBIE 2019. They are an easy way to connect with people around a subject matter that is interesting and relevant to you.

The Braindates are managed within our conference app. It allows you to create topics and connect with others at the conference in our Braindate lounge. Everyone is invited to participate in Braindates!
