Expatica Dating has been recently nominated for the Best Niche Dating Site category in the first ever European Dating Awards.
Known as Europe’s only annual awards event for online dating industry, the internationally recognised awards are expanding this 2016 to the rest of the European mainland after two successful years in the UK.
Since its inception in 2009, Expatica Dating has earned several accolades for its success in the online dating industry.
The dating platform runs globally across 187 individual sites targeting single expatriates living in Europe, North America, South America, Asia, Africa and Australia. Today, the sites have over 310,000 expat members with around 8,000 new registrations every month.
Expatica Dating is an extension of Expatica, the leading news and information source for the international and expat community in Europe. Through its websites, Expatica currently reaches 3.5 million expats and internationals worldwide.
“From the moment Expatica was established in 2000, it has been our dual aim to provide expats with the news and information they need to set up their life abroad as well as to help them connect,” said operations manager Danielle de Groot.
“In doing so, we discovered that single expats face the additional difficulty of meeting singles and figuring out how to go about dating in their new country, as etiquette and rules vary widely. We set up Expatica Dating to help them find their way through this minefield and into a loving and fulfilling relationship.”
There are 10 different categories in this year’s award, including Best Niche Dating Site, Online Dating Brand of the Year, Dating App of the Year, Dating Expert of the Year and Best New Dating App among others.
Winners will be announced on the evening of 12 May following the Global Dating Insights European Conference at the Rode Hoed in Amsterdam, Netherlands
