Brella - The event networking & matchmaking platform

Our virtual event platform includes AI-powered matchmaking, so you'll benefit from the best business opportunities possible at Broker Extra.


You will receive a link and unique access code to the event and networking platform a few days before the event starts. You can then take a look at your fellow attendees and think about who you would like to set up meetings with.


Set up your profile in Brella, and let the AI matchmaking algorithm recommend people to connect with. The more complete your profile is, the more helpful the tool will be.


Reach out to other attendees through Brella, and start a conversation! Brella helps you schedule meetings before, during and after Broker Extra. It's also easy to politely decline meeting requests that aren't interesting to you or if you wish to suggest another meeting time. There's also a dedicated space for meetings set up through Brella if you want to make use of it. 


After the event, follow up with your connections. If there's anyone you weren't able to meet on site, you can still use Brella to connect with them. You'll also receive contact information for every presenting company, making it easy to connect with the innovators who caught your eye. 


There is networking time built into the Broker Extra agenda.  Please take advantage of the Brella platform to schedule your meetings prior to the event.  If you have any questions, please reach out to us at [email protected]


Brella will also deliver all of our amazing content (Live and Pre Recorded), so you've also got the agenda, list of sponsors, list of speakers at the touch of a button. This really is going to be the biggest virtual insurance broker event!
