The event takes place on Tuesday 10th March 2020 at the 5* Dream Downtown Hotel in Midtown, a short walk from Chelsea Market and the High Line Park.
Speaker sessions run from 10am – 4:30pm (lunch is included), and the conference is followed by an evening of drinks and socialising.
The post-conference drinks are very kindly sponsored by Vonage, one of the world’s leading suppliers of flexible cloud communication platforms.
On the night before the event, Monday 9th March 2020, GDI will also be hosting executive Networking Drinks at local favourite Brass Monkey NYC from 7pm.
GDI Founder Simon Corbett said: “We’re incredibly excited to welcome dating executives to our first ever New York Conference in March 2020.
“The East Coast is home to a range of key industry players, from the biggest apps to the most creative new brands. We’re certain this event will be the first of many.”
