Aussie Speed Date PLUS was founded in December 2015. We are a professional match-making agency and speed dating events business. Our mission is to provide the best way for people to establish relationships that add meaning to their lives.

Aussie Speed Date PLUS events provide a fast, fun, safe and easy way for singles to meet one another, for dating or friendship. We're pretty good at it and we thrive on the great feedback we receive. We're not like some other operators in our market. We really care about giving our clients the best experience possible. We also guarantee that you'll meet at least one person you want to see again. So, if you don't - your next event is totally free of charge.

Our dating events work and we genuinely believe in there's no easier, more fun way to meet people. What is most interesting to us is that people love speed dating the most because it gives you the exposure you need without the awkward commitment. The beauty of speed dating is that you get to see if there is chemistry right then and there and then have the no pressure walking away, if desired.

Why not book an event and give us a try.


We're based in Sydney and the company is run by a small but dedicated team of people. Here's some more info about the team behind Aussie Speed Date PLUS.
