  • MORE Speed Dating sessions-- double that of last year!
  • Speed Dating 101 Workshop-- What IS Speed Dating? How does it even work? Where can I get some practice? This workshop will address all of those questions and more
  • Continued variety of Speed Dating-- LGBT sessions were a GREAT success last year and we will continue!

More sessions wow, it's about time. Thanks, maybe this year I could actually get in.

I noticed you said pre-reg? Are you going to the would email lottery like in 2012? Or is it going to be first come first served?

Pre-registration for event is NOT required. It is based on first-come, first-served in the line.

To increase your chances of getting in, we recommend coming 10 minutes prior to the desired event but from previous experiences, participants have waited anytime from 1/2 hour to 2 hours.

I hope I will be able to get in this year.  Last year, I came to all but one of the Straight sessions about 30-45 minutes early, and each time every guy position had been filled long before.  One time the guys said they had been there 4 hours, that 2x the total number of guys they had spots for had been there within an hour, and that if I didn't come that early I didn't have a chance, or deserve one.  It was kind of disappointing.

Can you give a brief overview on how it works? Just in case I can't make it to the workshop.

Hi RandR,

We have a full agenda for our workshop so it'd be really long to post on here. Plus that sucks all the fun and surprise out of you attending our workshop! Stop by, it'll be great!

Hi All!

During FanimeCon, contacting us via email or forums may not get you the fastest response. Please visit us during our hours on Saturday and Sunday 10AM - 6PM in Marriott Salon Rooms 5 and 6 (V & VI).

Prior to Friday, email or forum inquiries will be answered in a timely manner but no guarantees.

I am super excited! We have a great line-up for ya'll this year! See you all soon.

Question. What's the general ratio of guys and girls, and age differential? I never attended SD before. Thanks

Ratio of guys and girls in the session event itself is even 1:1. Age bracket can go anywhere from 18+, although we usually get 18-30YO as I've seen in the past. Hope this helps!

Is it safe enough to assume that if we can get into the 101 Workshop we could also make it into the Noon Session following it?  I had poor luck the last two years and found you guys full the last few times I tried to attent.

Workshop is 10AM - 11AM. If you stay for the entire duration, then you can be in line at 11AM for the 12PM Session. We made it that way so people can have a chance to wait for the 12PM if they wanted.

Entry for participation depends on the first-come, first-serve waiting basis. We are a very popular event and it is dependent on the number of guys/girls who want to participate. This year we are running 2 events per round so we are doubling the number of participants.

Ah! I kinda want to go to the speed dating, but... I'm too shy. >w<

Can you still make it into the speed dating without going to the workshop before hand? Or are you just going to explain at the beginning of each round the rules/how it works?

Also, what if you come late to the speed dating? Or should you be exactly on time/early to wait in line if you're a girl, because from what I'm hearing there are more guys than girls at these things so girls have an easier time getting in.

Anyone may participate in Speed Dating without going to the workshop beforehand. Rules will be explained prior to each round.

We do not accept participants if they do not come at least 10 minutes prior to the event for males or females. We had a full round of females every time last year and I can only imagine the event will be more popular this year so please plan accordingly.
