  • MORE Speed Dating sessions!
  • Speed Dating Workshops-- 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!

UPDATED: APRIL 2, 2015

Location: Fairmont Hotel, Sacramento, Piedmont, and Hillsborough Rooms

Speed Dating 101 Workshops: Saturday 10:30AM - 11:30AM & Sunday 10:30AM - 11:30AM

Speed Dating Sessions: Saturday 12PM - 2PM, *2PM - 4PM, 4PM - 6PM & Sunday 12PM - 2PM, *2PM - 4PM, 4PM - 6PM
*LGBT Sessions offered


Pre-Registration: Not required, but all participants need to have a legitimate FanimeCon badge (Member or Staff)
ALL Attendees must come to desired Speed Dating Session WITH Proper Photo ID (proof of 18+YO)-- No Exceptions!

This 2015 year, we will be hosting Speed Dating workshops, sessions, and more. All FanimeCon attendees (18+) are welcomed to the Speed Dating 101 Workshops. For the first time for the Speed Dating Sessions, the selection and registration process will be a RANDOM LOTTERY-BASED process! Selection for participation is NOT guaranteed, but there is no more hassle of waiting in line.

The Random Lottery-Based Selection/Registration Process for the Speed Dating Sessions is simple:
(1)   Stop by Speed Dating rooms in Fairmont Hotel from 10AM – 3PM on Saturday and Sunday and fill out a registration slip for your desired event session. 1 entry per person per session. Attendees may submit up to max 3 entries per day.

(2)   After you are done signing up, you are free to leave and have fun at con! We require a minimal amount of information from you and only staff personnel are handling the registration process.

(3)   Come back ½ hour prior to your desired session and see if you are randomly selected for that Speed Dating session or else you will forfeit your spot if you were called. Ex: If you registered for the Saturday 12PM session, you must arrive at the rooms at 11:30AM when staffers start to randomly select and process attendees’ registration. Selection for event participation is NOT guaranteed!

We provide heterosexual and queer friendly, gender-neutral (LGBT) speed dating sessions. LGBT sessions, include gay/queer males, lesbian/queer females, and bisexual/pansexual folks, are offered Saturday and Sunday at 2PM. Picture IDs will be checked at the door to verify age. Please bring a valid picture ID that indicates your birthday (passport, driver’s license, state id, etc.). There are no exceptions to the ID requirement.

Please post any questions or comments you may have here! Any suggestions are appreciated as well. Check back here often as FanimeCon comes closer or email us at speeddatingATfanimeDOTcom.

So how is the lotto thing going to work? Do we have to put out names in a box during the con or is there an email we send beforehand or are we going to have to line up to put out names in a box then wait hours till you read off the names?

Seems like last year was pleagued by major shortage of females. (Insert rumor here, aka staffers where asking friends to "help out") 

But oh wells. Never could get in the last 4 years, it's not worth it for me next year. Just asking questions for other people that want to try their luck next year.

No emails, we are planning to conduct the lottery during Con. Details are TBD but we will plan for the fairest, most efficient process possible!

As to the rumors, we filled each Speed Dating session with the max. number of males AND females :) So no shortage there! I would take rumors and naysays with a grain of salt. If you have any concerns, please email me and I can address them (donnaATfanime.com).

Hopefully with this lottery system, you can participate this year! We apologize for the previous years' inconveniences, there were many variables that factored into how our department performed. I could list all the reasons to illicit sympathy but that won't solve our problems :)

First and foremost, WE NEED STAFF!! If anyone is interested in helping us out, please email speeddatingATfanime.com or DonnaATfanime.com. Thanks!
