GDI Conference

Two Weeks To Go Until GDI London Dating Conference

GDI Conference

There are now two weeks until the GDI London conference on 28th September.

Tinder, The Meet Group, The League, Paktor, Facebook, Microsoft & App Annie are all speaking at the dating industry event.

Brian Norgard, the Chief Product Officer of Tinder, will be speaking at the industry event, our third annual London conference.

Joining the company in January 2015 as Head of Revenue, Norgard and his team have turned Tinder into the number one top-grossing app on the App Store, while also helping to conceive of some of Tinder’s most successful features such as the Super Like, Tinder Boost and Likes You.

We are also thrilled to have Amanda Bradford, the founder & CEO of international exclusive dating startup The League speaking on PR strategy, and Jim Bugden, the SVP of Corporate Development at The Meet Group giving a talk on consolidation in a fragmented landscape.

Alex Tam from Southeast Asia dating leader Paktor will also be giving a fascinating talk on key insights from its online-to-offline business, and the star of this year’s Audience With Facebook Enno Joensson will speak about measuring marketing data.

We’re also very excited to have Microsoft’s Simon Jacobson speaking about search marketing, and App Annie’s Paul Barnes presenting on why data is the secret to dating app success.

Our brilliant sponsors Dating Factory, Hub People, Securion Pay and Pollen will also all present on the day.

Running from 10am – 4pm, the conference will be followed by drinks and networking in the bar upstairs after the conference agenda finishes – full details here.

Full priced tickets are now available for £220 on 1st September – buy a ticket and check out the full agenda below!
