I would like to clarify I am not trying to immediately shoot this topic down., I just listed some main focus points of the last time this topic was brought up, although there are some different variables that could change the result of the decision.
Last time this topic was brought up, I think it was suggested it be for NDK NYE. There is a significant difference from the NDK convention and the NDK New Year’s event.
It may be more applicable at an actually convention, rather than a dance/ ball event.
Some different variables are, NDK does not host panels at the New Year’s event, but host Panels at the convention. NDK may have more available recourses for the convention, than for the New Year’s event.
Another significant variable that has changed, since this topic was last brought up, is the fact that when this topic was last brought up it was a relatively new trend to do at American conventions and had no record of being hosted at events/conventions around this area. Since then this event has been done at both starfest and comic con, though somewhat different in nature these conventions share with NDK the intent to entertain attendees. Now that this event has been done by relatively similar conventions and there is appears to be a higher demand, it might now be practical to host this event.
All previous statement are personal speculations and opinions and in no way represent an official organization.
I wish you good luck in you endeavor to raise support for a “Speed dating” event at NDK; and if you are successful, I wish you well and good time at the event.
