GDI Conference: Innovation in Online Dating, London 2015
We will soon be releasing some exciting news about our next conference, so stay tuned for further details and sign up to our conference newsletter below to be the first to hear about more events from GDI.
In 2015, Global Dating Insights held its first dating conference in London. It was a fantastic day of talks, debate and networking, with industry players grappling with some vital topics, while also sharing tips for growth and giving insights into their own businesses. We had over 100 attendees, 15 brilliant speakers and 10 sponsors at The Grange five star hotel in St Paul’s, London.
Innovation is at the heart of the online dating industry. The businesses that innovate today will be the leaders of tomorrow.
GDI’s Innovation in Online Dating conference will offer a fresh take on the areas critical to the industry, and explore how brands can keep ahead in this increasingly competitive space. Speakers will include some familiar names and faces, and a lot of new ones too.
It’ll be a busy day and we’re planning on covering a lot, from the big issues the industry is facing such as user acquisition and mobile monetisation, to European law, data security, SEO and apps. No matter what issues we’ll be discussing, innovation will be the theme of the day, as online dating brands and key partners present, debate and network.
We’re doing this to help you find those invaluable bits of gold dust. We want you to leave smarter, refreshed and ready to continue to drive the industry forwards.
We have an outstanding line-up of speakers confirmed from online dating businesses, investors, suppliers and leading affiliates. Speakers are invited and will include some familiar industry faces and new entrants making an impact on the market.
