One of the key components the SUSE team felt was missing from virtual events is the opportunity to connect with others on meaningful topics. This is why we are excited to offer a topic-based networking application within the digital event experience, powered by Braindate.

SUSECON’s networking feature provides an easy way to connect and learn from others within our community through virtual conversations about topics that matter to you. Share your knowledge and book one-on-one or small group conversations with other participants or meet for awesome video conversations!

Group Braindate

How does it work?

  1. Explore topics that interest you with the keyword search, sort and filter functions, then send invitations for one-on-one sessions or join group sessions directly.

  2. If you don’t see a topic you would like to discuss with others, post one! Participants who want to dive into the same topic with you can then send you an invitation to meet.

  3. There are two meeting types available:

    1. One-on-one
      A one-on-one (1:1) session is a 30-minute conversation that you book directly with another participant. If you see a 1:1 topic on the platform that interests you, you can request a meeting with the author of the topic by proposing times to meet. Once the author accepts a proposed time, you meet with them at that time via video chat within the SUSECON event experience.

    2. Small group
      A group session is a 30-minute collaborative conversation with up to 8 participants. If you see a group session topic that interests you, you can immediately join by reserving a spot. The session takes place at the time proposed by the author of the topic. Once it's time for your session, you meet with your group within the SUSECON event experience for a video chat. The group session format is best if you'd like to hear multiple perspectives on a single topic. The author of the topic acts as the moderator, making sure that everyone in the group is able to contribute to the conversation.
