Just in time for event industry’s biggest event, International Confex – the multi-billion pound MICE sector gets its own dedicated dating site. The brainchild of industry veteran Richard John, http://micematch.me micematch.me is a bespoke dating portal for all those working in the Meeting, Incentives, Conferences and Events (MICE) sector. Richard explained, ‘the idea came to me during a conversation at another industry event. When I asked a visitor what she was hoping to get from the event she answered – jokingly, I think –‘ a husband.’ That response stayed with me, and I realised the unique nature of our industry meant that micematch.me could be the perfect solution for many people.’ The sector employs more than half a million people in the UK alone, many of whom spend long hours working onsite at events globally. ‘Relationships can be tough with that kind of lifestyle,’ explained Richard. ‘It can mean long days, and many nights away from home. And because the result if often a very glamorous-looking event, potential partners can end up thinking it’s a life of endless parties. The truth is very different. So we think a specialist dating site is just what the industry needs. We’ve also taken the risk out of joining by offering a free three-month trial period.’ Whilst micematch.me has its own dedicated database of prospects, the site is also affiliated with global dating specialists Venntro, who run numerous specialist sites. That gives micematch.me members access to more than 55 million potential partners worldwide. ‘The response to date has been terrific’, added Richard. ‘micematch.me has been designed to enable members to connect with people whose aspirations meet their own,’. That’s whether it’s about meeting someone for a relationship that lasts a lifetime or one that spans the duration of set-up to break-down.’ENDS   Press contact: Richard John +44 7778 518593 or Richard.john@realise.me.uk
