We were delighted to be invited to The Netherlands on 12th May to speak at The Global Dating Insights conference in Amsterdam. Our Global Matchmaker Sarah Ryan joined some of Europe’s leading dating industry professionals including Charly Lester who is the founder of The Dating Awards, leading matchmakers Caroline Brealey & Rachel McLynn and last but certainly not least, the leading dating photography business founder, Saskia Nelson.

Caroline Brealey who runs the Matchmakers Academy in London said this of the conference, which was to be followed by The European Dating Awards 2016, “A brilliant opportunity for matchmakers to come together, make new connections, learn from one another and share good practice within the industry. All matchmakers are welcomed, whether experienced or just starting out.”

Needless to say we had a wonderful time, had many discussions about the world of marriage-minded singles and gained insights into the direction that the dating industry as a whole is headed in the foreseeable future. The Global Dating Insights team said «massive thanks goes out to all our speakers, who were wonderful – the presentations were of such a high calibre and the day’s success was down to the hard work & effort of all the speakers, many of whom travelled a long way to share their insights with us, so thank you.»

Simantov headed to the awards ceremony in the evening where we were finalists for Best Matchmaking Agency 2016 & Best Customer Service 2016 and were most definitely delighted to network with 100 cupids both on and offline. Simantov would like to wish a huge Mazel Tov to all finalists and winners on the evening who are busy spending their working lives making love happen.

Shalom & see you next year Amsterdam!
