GDI Dating Drinks Wraps Up for 2018!


A huge thank you to the professionals and executives who joined us at the Christmas edition of GDI Dating Drinks last week.

The evening, held at The Refinery in New Street Square, saw over 70 attendees come together to catch up and look back on 2018.

This quarter’s event was held in association with Scamalytics, HubStars and the Online Dating Association (ODA).

Scamalytics helps dating site owners to automatically remove scammers from their platform, saving businesses time and money whilst improving their reputation.

HubStars provides both ready to promote dating brands and bespoke white label online dating solutions. The platform caters for over 8 million dating customers and bills in nine different currencies worldwide.

The ODA allows the sector to work together on standards and speak as one voice with regulators, law enforcement agencies and others.

“Dating Drinks has really taken off this year,” says GDI Founder Simon Corbett, “We had a great turnout in Piccadilly in Q1, and again in Q2 at The Porterhouse in Covent Garden.

“The post-conference drinks in Q3 were brilliant as always, and last night was a fantastic way to round off the year!

“These quarterly events are perfect for a bit of informal networking and socialising. A massive thanks to everyone who came out – we can’t wait to host more in 2019!”
