Jump-start Your Conference Connections


Inspire productive discussions, share common interests, and create real connections by joining 1:1 or group conversations with other attendees using Braindate, the enhanced networking platform for CRE.Converge 2023.

Presented by Bridge Industrial.

What is a Braindate?

Braindate is an online networking platform that allows you to schedule knowledge-sharing conversations with other CRE.Converge attendees – one-on-one or in small groups – that take place on-site in the NAIOP Braindate Lounge at the conference. They’re the best way to brainstorm, solve challenges, share expertise or experiences while connecting with new (brilliant!) people. Watch this video to learn more.


How do I get started?

  1. Log in to Braindate and create your profile with this link: https://creconverge2023.braindate.com/
  2. Explore topics: Post topics related to discussions you’d like to have with others during the event. You can invite anyone to meet based on your topic, or join others already posted. This is your opportunity to get a head start on your networking and connect with other attendees to share your experiences, discuss common challenges or brainstorm ideas.
  3. Book your Braindates: Send invitations to meet others to discuss their topics and accept any invitations you receive. Once confirmed, your Braindates can take place on-site at the conference in the NAIOP Braindate Lounge.


Can I book a Braindate meeting when I’m on-site at the conference?

Yes! Make your way to the NAIOP Braindate Lounge, located in the Exhibit Hall in the Regency Ballroom (7th floor) at the Hyatt Regency Seattle. Our team will get you set up quickly for a productive conversation.
