Dr. Dato’s Brief:
The topic covered here is summary of interviews conducted by Karen Burkett with some online dating industry executives on the subject of love and how it relates to the industry. It is a brief account of some questions directed towards industry attendants of the iDate 2011.
To summarize the message, the meetings and conferences held at the dating conferences every year are to bring the online dating ‘business’ together into one place for further exchange of ideas, business, partnerships and more. Some of the people come to attract investors, others to provide services and many to deliver their knowledge of this industry.
I liked the catchy line used to describe this industry ‘there ain’t no romance, without finance’.
