You are attending #NAFA2024 to meet fleet professionals and learn from those who share your interests, ambitions, and concerns. How do you spark those meaningful conversations? It all starts with a Braindate.

What is a Braindate?

A Braindate is a knowledge-sharing conversation and a way for you to intentionally network during I&E. Taking place as one-on-one or in a small group, these conversations are focused on a topic of your choice in the Braindate Lounge. They can be used to brainstorm, solve challenges, share expertise or experiences, while connecting with new (brilliant!) industry peers. A Braindate provides attendees the ability to connect with like-minded fleet professionals over meaningful, and authentic conversations.

Here’s What To Do:

  1. Go to:
  2. Login: use the email you used to register.
  3. Create your profile, turn your notifications ON and browse the marketplace.
  4. See an interesting topic? Book a spot for the group topic that you’re interested in or propose a time to meet with the person who posted a 1-on-1 topic.
  5. Don’t see anything of interest? Post your own topic. Someone at I&E has the same question as you or is just as excited by the same things as you are!
  6. Once it’s time for your Braindate, head to the Braindate Lounge and check in with a Learning Concierge.

If you need any assistance and/or troubleshooting, please contact and a Learning Concierge will be able to assist with your request.
