We heard you loud and clear when you asked for more networking opportunities. The platform, Brella, is the world's leading event platform for virtual events. With the first-ever intent-based matchmaking algorithm, powered by artificial intelligence, Brella gives attendees the opportunity to make a custom profile that highlights their interests and goals within ETA. From there, Brella's robust software suggests people to meet based on mutual objectives. Attendees can easily set up one-on-one networking meetups with one another.
