Speed Dating 2013
in Paris

Coinciding with the 2013 PromaxBDA Europe Conference, Speed Dating is a unique event for PromaxBDA members. Select clients will meet agency executives in a series of eight-minute capabilities pitches in their own cabaret-styled VIP table for four.

Clients will have the opportunity to hear pitches from established companies and up-and-comers from across Europe, and beyond. At the same time, agencies have the chance to showcase their work in the format of a capabilities pitch to a range of TV creatives/marketing professionals from across Europe. And everyone involved will do so while enjoying a beverage or two! Feedback is given after the event via a rating system, expressing levels of interest in working with the agency or vendor, and PromaxBDA will connect the matches.

The event takes place on Monday, 11 March, from 18:00 – 20:00 culminating the first day of the conference. After the speed dating takes place, we welcome you to join us for the welcome reception.

Clients' participation is complimentary.
Agencies' participation is at a small fee for the commercial package which includes sponsorship representation and a delegate registration to PromaxBDA Europe Conference & Awards.

All applicants must be submitted by Friday, 25 January by 17:00 CET – and the space is going quick! Participants will be notified on Friday, 1 February if space is no longer available. Please note that by taking part, we expect that you will be in attendance for the full 90 minutes of Speed Dating so as to ensure that there are no tables forced to sit out for a rotation.

To submit your name and/or get more information, please use the following contact information:

Chayenne de Witte, European Conference Director
