How the Speed Dating Sessions WIll Work

*During the speed dating sessions, the women will be given a station and the men will be asked to rotate, sitting with each woman in their age group for 3-5 minutes each. We will provide question cards at each table. It is up to you if you want to use them. They are very helpful at creating enagaging conversations.

*You will be given a form to fill out thorughout the experience. This is where you will write down the names of attendees you are interested in getting to know further. At the end of the event, you will turn these in. If you and another attendee both choose each other, you will be sent their contact info via email within 48 hours (likely sooner!)

*If we do not have an even number of genders, we will provide refunds to those that go over our gender quota.

*We reserve the right to make adjustments to the groups to best serve the ages and genders of the attendees. If a particular group does not have enough attendees, it may be cancelled, in which case you will be provided a full refund.
