What to expect?

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

The one-day conference will see some of the biggest names in the industry tackling the most important questions in online dating, looking at growth, marketing, search and consolidation.

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.

Who is speaking?

We are delighted to announce that Tinder, The Meet Group, The League, Facebook, Paktor, App Annie and Microsoft are all speaking at this year’s conference.

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 a top 10 grossing app, while also helping to conceive of some of Tinder’s most successful features such as the Super Like, Tinder Boost and forthcoming 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, the star of this year’s Audience With Facebook Enno Joensson will speak about measuring marketing data, Microsoft’s Simon Jacobson will present on the challenges of search marketing, and App Annie’s Paul Barnes will speak about why data is the secret to dating app success.
