Welcome to Jconnect Virtual Speed Dating
You have successfully registered and secured a spot to attend our virtual speed dating event. Dating will begin promptly at 7.30pm so you will need to arrive in the Zoom lounge at 7.15pm. Please be considerate of the other guests and be there on time as we will start promptly.
If for any reason you are running late or are not able to attend please text us on either 0422 607 678 or 0432 097 057 to let us know ASAP.
The Zoom lounge room can be accessed via Zoom invitation sent to you. Please be sure to register for a free Zoom account as only verified members will be able to log into the meeting. We do everything to ensure security on the Zoom platform.
On entry all participants will be muted so our welcome team can explain how the event will work.
Please make sure in your settings that only your first name is displayed. This is for your privacy and security. We cannot adjust your settings so it is up to you to do this prior to joining the meeting.
Please set your background to your favourite holiday spot, or if you’re a real foodie, maybe your favourite restaurant. It can be any background you like that tells dates something about you.
Before the event, download the match cards at the bottom of this page, they will be available from 7pm on the night of the event. They are password protected and the password will be sent to you on the afternoon of the event.
It's also important that you test your video and audio. Here's a link to help you do this;
At the event
- On arrival you will be placed in the waiting room so we can verify all guests from the guest list. When you are moved from the waiting room to the lobby lounge you will be greeted by the host who you will be able to see and hear.
- Once everyone is in the lounge, your host will go through how the event will work again.
- Girls will be allocated a room for the event. Each room has a name. Girls will stay in their allocated room for the whole event. Guys will be moved from room to room every six minutes.
- Between each move, the guys will be moved into the transit lounge to give everyone time to make notes and fill out their match card.
- You will have six minutes for each date, so make those first six minutes count! We will let you know one minute before the end of the date. When you see the wrap up message on your screen, please say your goodbyes.
- Notes are a good idea as it may be hard to remember who everyone is by the end of the night.
- At the end of the evening you will submit your form to us.
- We really encourage you tick yes to as many people as possible to give you the best chance of having mutual matches and making the best of the speed dating experience. If there is a mutual match we will send you a text exchanging contact information within 48 hours.
We thank you for respecting the privacy and confidentiality of all participants during the dates.
We hope you enjoy the Jconnect virtual speed dating experience!
