Set us up with seats for 30 people and we’ll create an event people talk about, online and offline

With each event we serve paid Facebook and google adds to over 20,000 people as well as advertise our speed dating events to our meetup members and event partners increasing the reach of your venue for every event. Our investment in advertising our event at your location is serious, and is an additional value add with working with our group.  We also create playful video ads and posters used to increase the reach of your venue.

Battle and Brew contacted us to help them draw people on Sunday which was formerly one of the locations slowest days, our first d speed dating event targeted to their nerd culture clientele was a record setting Sunday, and now is a monthly repeating event that has been featured on podcasts and blogs. The event was fully plug and play, Insta-date / 1v1meirl Staff bring all equipment, hosting the event itself including event setup and break down as well as creating ads and training videos and theme’d openers and games for speed date participants. As well as filling up seats at the bar, it also boosted participation on social media accounts as people joined their Facebook page to grab tickets before they sell out weeks after the event goes live.

Insta-dates.com is a Speed dating team born out of the collaboration event promoters and meetup organizers seeing a need to bring speed dating events to their members and contacts.  Hosted by organizers who lead over 8,000 meetup members between 10 of Atlanta’s fastest growing groups, we found that our single professional members were looking for an alternative to sites like tinder, and a more intimate experience then meetup.com. Inst-dates is an expansion of our already successful Geek themed speed dating event 1v1meIRL which hosts 2 events every month for various audiences and age ranges, sexual preferences, and demographics.
