Brandwave Coffee Bar
Sports Marketing Networking

Brandwave Coffee Bar

As lockdown loomed and offices shut, face to face meetings and networking events across the world became a distant but sought after memory. Even in the darkest moments it’s not about what CAN’T be done, but more what CAN be. With the Brandwave crew and thousands of other sports industry professionals working from home full-time, a pivot meeting was put in the diary. The agenda – ‘How do we adapt to this situation and embrace the new working from home culture?’. The unanimous decision – ‘Create a virtual coffee bar’.

The Outcome

Over the past year Brandwave has brought the sports, outdoor and fitness industries together via a series of virtual coffee bars. The invite only, informal format is delivered through facilitated conversation on a chosen theme and takes place twice per month.

Each hour long networking and knowledge sharing session always attracts a great crowd from across different markets and provides a good opportunity to meet others, share ideas and link up afterwards.

Topics covered have included:

Activation & Events; Remaining Relevant, Growth Hacking, Innovation in Influencer Marketing and many more…

We meet every month so if you’d be interested in attending a future Brandwave Coffee Bar please contact the team:

The Brandwave Coffee Bar has been a refreshing way to meet, interact and stay connected with like-minded professionals on a regular basis. The ability to have an informal 1 hour conversation on a focus topic related to Brand and Marcomms, has not only been a welcomed appointment in my calendar but one I always look forward to. Long may the Coffee Bar continue - Online and Offline.

Love the coffee bar format - it's like attending a trade show, but without the hassle, PLUS - no travel, crappy hotels, zero expenses - just the good bits of hanging out and talking with great people.

As a huge fan of trade shows, meeting new contacts are key. I've found these Coffee Bar's vital - off the back of them I've started dealing on a one to one with many attendees for future partnerships.
