While sessions are important, we encourage delegates to also take the time to learn and engage with each other and experience new things.   Time between sessions are intentionally kept on the generous side so that you can benefit from the various interactive engagement activities that have been curated for you!


How do you spark meaningful conversations at the EVENT?  It all starts with a braindate.  Braindates are about sharing knowledge. They are one-on-one or group conversations that you book with other EVENT participants.

It's Simple:           1.  Log In to the Braindate Platform and start booking your braindates.          
                               2.  Once you get to the EVENT, you'll meet your braindates in person at the Tourism Winnipeg Braindate Lounge. Our learning concierges will be ready to greet you!
