Decide how you can be of benefit to the venue and how hosting a speed dating event will help them AND you so everyone can make a little extra cash. After you secure a location(s) you'll want to set a date and begin marketing your Event, the Venue, and your company (yourself). Let them know a little about the venue you selected, the types of people you anticipate on participating, and ask them to attend. Prepare a Speed Dating Kit for your events with the following: · Pens/Pencils · Name Tags · Note Cards · Table Tents/ Table Markers · Bell/ Whistle 8.At the end of the night they will all have met every opposite. Once you get the results, allow 24-72 hours to inform guest of their matches. Non mutual interests are voided discretely without anyone feeling put on the spot, or rejected.They keep track of guest they would like to meet on the note card. Once all rounds are complete, guest turn their note cards in to you. How to Charge Depending on the venue selection and targeted audience, I would suggest charging anywhere from to per person at your speed dating event, starting out.Additionally, you'll want to choose a name that has an available domain address to compliment or match.(Example: Match in Six = DBA | Domain address = 2. Just a word of personal advice from experience, I have noticed that age groups that range from 35 and up are more likely to fill up faster than those events for people who are single and under the age of 35.Plan to provide refreshments at the venue such as bottled water, soda and light snacks. Advertise your event in newspapers and in local radio and television commercials.Post signs and put fliers in bars, cafes, clubs and restaurants. You'll first want to come up with a name that you will operate under (a "DBA" name, so to speak).I suggest coming up with a name that is unique, yet simple and to the point of your business.Call or email those individuals who selected potential matches to give them the information they need to establish contact.Matchmaking has been a dating and marriage practice for centuries, but American speed dating has been around since 1999, when a rabbi and his students put a turbo-style twist on the tradition of introducing Jewish singles.
