NETWORK AT GTC

Meet, learn, and share like never before.

  • WHAT IS A BRAINDATE AND WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN ONE?

    The arrival of COVID-19 has unfortunately made morning coffee dates, working lunches, and after-work drinks impossible, but there is still a great way to establish new professional connections during GTC – just go on a Braindate!

    Braindates are the easiest way to connect with, learn from, and engage with other GTC attendees during the show. You can book these knowledge-sharing conversations either one-on-one or in small groups up to five to discuss a wide range of topics. First register for GTC and use the Virtual Braindate platform to either explore existing topics or suggest topics of your own to discuss. Then book your preferred dates and times and connect with your Braindate using video chat. Check out the NVIDIA Braindate platform.
