After the success of our London conference in 2015, GDI hosted its next European conference in Amsterdam in May 2015.
The conference was part of a joint one day event with the European Dating Awards, which ran in the evening after the conference.
With new speakers, a broader European focus and industry delegates who attended from all over the world, it promised to be the must-attend dating industry event of the year.
The conference ran between 10am and 4pm, with the Dating Awards starting at 6pm with a champagne reception, followed by a three course dinner, the awards ceremony, then a DJ and dancing – the event ended at 1am.
Our fantastic lineup of speakers included the CEOs of Zoosk, The Inner Circle, Venntro, Paktor & M14/Bristlr, as well as top executives from European dating companies Happn, Dating Factory & Once.
We would like to say a huge thanks to all our sponsors for the event, who were all be at the conference on the day.

The Dating Awards
After two very successful years in the UK, The Dating Awards expanded to the European mainland for the very first time.
The awards, founded by dating blogger Charly Lester, had 13 different award categories, including Online Dating Brand of the Year, Dating App of the Year, Dating Expert of the Year, Best New Dating App and Best Niche Dating Site among others.
The awards were judged by an independent panel of industry experts, and the finalists were announced on Twitter.
