New networking experience - Braindate! 

At SocialWest, you rub shoulders with the greatest leaders in digital marketing. You can learn as much from the people sitting next to you than the speaker on stage. What if you could pick everyone's minds? It all starts with a braindate.

This year, we make it easy for you to tap into the experiences and expertise of everyone in attendance. The spotlight is all yours! Braindates are knowledge-sharing conversations that you book with others to have one-on-one or in small groups on-site in the Braindate Lounge.

They’re the best way to brainstorm, solve challenges, share expertise or experiences, while connecting with new (brilliant!) people.  

Get ready! Create your own topics, book 1:1 meetings and join group conversations to meet and learn from the people around you at SocialWest.
