Speed dating events take place from 7:30PM-10:00PM. Hosts are required to arrive one hour before the start of the event in order to have enough time to prepare and set-up. Approximately 45 minutes is required after an event to complete basic administrative tasks.

All events take place at a centrally located, pre-determined venue. Being able to commute to and from the venue with event materials is required and transportation costs and parking are not compensated.
