Sun, sand, sea and iDate Miami

In a quick break from our dating site fraud series that we’re running this week, we have further news from iDate 2012. The Dating Industry Conference is being held in Miami in a little over six weeks, for those of you yet to hear about the event.

It promises to be a real show-stopper, split into two essential parts over the full week of January 23rd-30th inclusive. On dry land, the main two-day dating conferences will be held over the weekend of the 24-25th at the Miami Beach Convention Centre, B-Wing which you can find at 1901 Convention Center Drive, Miami, Florida 33139.

There are other presentations on both days either side of the main weekend audiences and you can book for one, all, or just some as a tag-on to the main two-day iDate pass. If you’re interested in any of the events, the costs are bundled as packages or individual assemblies; click through to find out how much a conference for online dating will cost.

If you’re looking for somewhere to stay for the dry-land event, the Royal Palm Miami Beach will set you back around $225/night including resort fees and tax if you book prior to the 19 December.

The conference then takes to the sea, with the iDate cruise abandoning terra firma in favour of a cruise to the Bahamas, 27th-30th January, inclusive. This is a luxuriant way to spend three days and nights networking with those right at the top of the internet dating tree aboard the Carnival Cruise Liner ‘Carnival Imagination’.

Departing Miami at 4pm on the afternoon of Friday 27th January you will then arrive at Nassau, Bahamas at 10am the following morning, to spend almost the whole day and night there. Departure from Nassau is 7am on the Sunday morning where you will spend the whole day at sea, either enjoying the ambience or partaking in the frivolity that has been arranged by your iDate convention hosts for pure indulgence into everything fun. The online dating gurus at sea in the Bahamas – I shudder to think of what they have planned.

It is then back on board and return to Miami at 8am on the morning of Monday 30th January, to conclude iDate 2012, Miami.

If you are dead set on attending this, the first of three iDate conferences scheduled for 2012, and accidentally order two tickets instead of one, please be sure to think of me if you still have the spare going begging in six weeks’ time!

With the two other dating site conferences scheduled for Beverley Hills on June 20-22 and Cologne later in the year (September 10-11th), this conference seems as if it will set one hell of a standard for the other two to follow. Please, send me a postcard, if you can’t fit me in your suitcase.
