BrandConnect is a forum for brand marketers and the tech ecosystem to meet and exchange ideas, experiences, and just get to know one another. Each dinner is a hand chosen group of influential brand marketers and young technology companies.
Our goal is to help facilitate the conversation between brands and tech to drive deeper discussions and relationships...all the while enjoying some good food and drinks.
