The Future of the Industry
A “can’t miss session” for anyone working in the Online Dating Industry is the “The State of the Industry” expert panel, where straight-forward-thinkers such as Ross Williams, Founder and CEO of WhiteLabelDating.com, Tanya Fathers, Co-Founder and CEO of Dating Factory, Lorenz Bogaert, the Co-Founder and CEO of Twoo, and Martin Bysh, the CEO of Smooch will give us insight on where they see our industry heading in the future.

Country Panels
For all those interested in either the U.K. marketplace or the DATCH region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland), the U.K. and DATCH country expert panels are must-attend sessions.

Networking Bonanza
The Online Dating Summit is all about networking and making new business contacts.  Therefore conference participants can use the b2bforum.net starting today to network and set up business meetings at the conference with the other attendees.  In addition to that on both conference days there will be an 80-minutes Speed Networking session starting at “high noon” where the participants can get to know each other in a fun and efficient way, before having the rest of the day to follow up in depth on their new business leads.

The Job Market
If you are looking to hire new employees, or if you want to offer your skills, you might want to stop by at the “ODS Job Market”.

For our Affiliates
Affiliates, who would like to improve their SEO ranking, should definitely not miss the various panels about this topic, and the chance to exchange some links at the “ODS Link Exchange Forum”.

The Hospitality Events
Business definitely comes first at the Online Dating Summit, but who said, you could not also network in a fun way? To network in a relaxed and informal atmosphere the organizers have put together an entertaining hospitality program.

For those who would like to work on their handicap while networking there is the ODS Golf Tournament, held on one of the nicest golf courses Catalonia has to offer.  And the adrenalin junkies will have the opportunity to race their fellow industry mates at the ODS Karting Grand Prix, held at one of the most impressive indoor karting tracks worldwide.

Happy hours at the end of the main show days (in the Private Club Mies Van der Rohe in the Hotel Miramar) will help you unwind and offer all delegates the opportunity to continue your business talks over a beer or a good glass of Spanish red in a more relaxed atmosphere.

And for those who can’t get enough and like a good party after a serious day of business there is more good news:  There will be 3 of those.

The ODS Opening Party will be held at Shoko, one of the trendiest clubs in Barcelona that will let you experience the excitement of the Mediterranean night life.

The “WhiteLabelDating.com Party” – the main party of the Online Dating Summit, sponsored by Global Personals and co-sponsored by Twoo, will take place in the one and only Club CDCL, an absolute hotspot in Barcelona.

The closing party, held in our venue hotel, will conclude the hospitality schedule.

Post-conference activities
For those that wish to experience a little more in Barcelona the organizers of the Online Dating Summit are going out of their way to make your stay a formidable one. A “Barcelona Gourmet Walking Tour” and a “Spanish Wine Tasting” are on offer on March 5th, 2012, for those who would like to stay a couple of hours longer, and to get to know more of the impressive city of Barcelona.

Mobile World Congress
A last thing:  For those of you interested in the latest & greatest in the field of mobile applications and developments, it might be worth to fly in a day or two earlier, as from February 27th until March 1st the Mobile World Congress is taking place, the world’s largest congress of its kind attracting over 60.000 visitors.
