Full List Of Winners At European Dating Awards 2016

The Dating Awards

Last Thursday, the winners of the first ever European Dating Awards were announced at a one-day dating industry event in Amsterdam.

Following GDI’s inaugural European conference, the European Dating Awards brought delegates from around the world together to celebrate excellence and expertise in all areas of the dating industry.

This year there were 10 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, as well as Matchmaking Agency of the Year.

Picking up the biggest awards of the night were Adopte Un Mec, who secured Online Dating Brand of the Year, and French dating app Happn, who won Dating App of the Year.

Amsterdam-based exclusive dating platform The Inner Circle was also one of the big winners of the evening, picking up the award for Best Niche Dating Site.

The company’s CEO & co-founder, David Vermeulen, was also congratulated on his individual success, being named Dating Entrepreneur of the Year.

Speaking about the awards, Vermeulen said: “We are thrilled to have won, not one, but two awards at last week’s ceremony.

“We were blown away when we got nominated, so to win in such a competitive category is really special.”

Speaking about the event, The Dating Awards founder Charly Lester said: “This year we had entrants from over 15 different European countries, including the Ukraine, Sweden, Belgium, Lithuania, France and the Netherlands.

“It’s really exciting to see recognition of the Dating Awards spreading around the world, and the Awards going to really deserving world-class companies. Bring on New York and the US Dating Awards!”
