The lounge experience is facilitated by matchmakers, who will make sure you connect to the person you have come to meet up with or, in the case of someone who just shows up or a Brain Date that is cancelled last minute, help introduce you to someone else that may be a good match.
The conference invites contributions from this broad range of applications, including Quaternary geology, geomorphology and landscape evolution, palaeontology, palaeobotany, archaeology, soil science, palaeoclimatology, provenancing, mineral prospecting, tectonics, space science, dose-rate assessment, retrospective population dosimetry and radiological event studies, including relating to the aftermath of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake.
Offers have included everything from advice on how to set up an experiential marketing campaign in the Bronx for a retail brand to how to do a handstand."It’s not just about business, either," Renaud says, "Brain Dating represents the whole being.
Everyone has something to offer." Renaud recalls that one of the most popular offers from 2015 was a student offering up reviews of products from a Millennial perspective.
Yes, more and more conferences are offering social apps to their participants, but Brain Dates go far beyond supplying an app.
Hub is where participants can set up their profiles and list their offers and requests for knowledge, it is the three-floor lounge that is integral to the Brain Dating experience.
