Our third annual London dating conference will again bring together the international industry for a day of talks, debate and networking.

Running from 10am – 4pm at The Grange, St Paul’s in London, the day will include lunch, two coffee breaks and drinks & networking in the bar upstairs after the conference finishes at 4pm.
