BARCELONA — What’s being billed as the first-ever Online Dating Summit (ODS) is set to run Mar. 2-5 at the Miramar Hotel in Barcelona.

Event producers said the show was created to explore further ways to satisfy and reach the "millions of users of this powerful new economic powerhouse."

“With the choice of Barcelona as the venue for the first European Online Dating Summit, the organizers of this event have offered us a brilliant venue that gives us the best of both worlds,” said Ross Williams, CEO of Whitelabeldating.com and TanyaFathers, CEO of DatingFactory.com.

"It is great to have the opportunity to visit both the Mobile World Congress and the Online Dating Summit in one efficient trip. We will be able to get the latest updates and developments in the mobile ecosystem as well as have the chance to meet with our peers and business partners at the dating conference. As a 2.5 billion marketplace, Europe desperately needed a quality conference for our industry,” the pair added.

Andreas Bischoff, co-founder of the conference said, “We are extremely proud to be bringing this unique conference to Barcelona. Expectations are high and our delegates will represent a true cross-section of the online dating industry."

He added, "With a range of high level seminars, workshops, expert-to-expert sessions and in-depth country panels this will be a top class learning experience in a perfect networking atmosphere.”
