Meeting Your Next Roommate - One Table at a Time

Speed Networking for Roommates works a lot like 'Speed Dating' without the 'Dating'. A structured opportunity to meet others just like yourself. Whether you have a room to rent, are looking for someone to find a place together or seeking a new opportunity to find both a roommate and one who shares your sensibilities and goals - we have the perfect solution. 

Devoid of typical networking event staples - we have done away with whistles, bells and over-the-top event trimmings. Finding a roommate that compliments yourself should be a comfortable, sophisticated and relaxed experience. An opportunity to create opportunities.

Los Angeles Roommate

Our Process | Our Theory

As a reporter for LA Talk Radio.com said, “ I walked through the venue without even noticing the tables of attendees; events are so chic and low key you might just walk right by.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. It is the non-event of events. At our SpeedLA Roomie events, you are able to meet all the participants - five to six minutes at a time. Selecting whom you would like to exchange contact information with and letting us do the rest.

The search for the perfect roommate can be at once challenging and daunting. A roommate who shares your lifestyle, taste and budget can seem impossible to find. Chemistry in friendships, business relationships and roommates - cannot be overstated or undervalued. Often times one can know in an instant if the person they are meeting is someone whom they have a connection with. It is these connections which can make the difference between a roommate who simply shares expenses and one that shares experiences.

A low key, sophisticated approach to meeting your next roommate in Los Angeles. Preferring a 'less is more' environment devoid of typical event trappings. Gone are the name-tags, shouting and over-the-top party trimmings. Connecting to those like you should be as comfortable and cosmopolitan as those lasting introductions you've had at a cocktail party, business retreat or after-work gathering with friends.
 
Simply choose the event you wish to attend and purchase your tickets online. Any questions, concerns or advice can be called upon anytime simply by e-mailing info@speedLAroomie.com
 
The night has arrived! Go to the venue at the published start time for the event. There is no official start time to the SpeedLA Roomie Networking portion of the evening - we like to wait for all participants to arrive, have a moment to settle in with a refreshment and mingle should they wish.
 
Our hosts will assist you with your SpeedLA Roomie 'Connect-Card'. After being shown to your table, you will move from participant to participant every 5-6 minutes. Simply mark down whom you would be interested in connecting with again on your SpeedLA Roomie 'Connect-Card' and we'll take care of the rest. For those whom garner connections, you will be notified via e-mail within 24 hours of the event with your 'Connect-Card' results.

Once the SpeedLA Roomie Networking has completed and all participants have had the opportunity to meet each other - you are welcome to stay and mingle. All we need are the 'Connect-Cards' to determine your SpeedLA Roomie connections.
 
With a seasoned sensibility and simplicity, we offer uncompromising value with unparalleled service. Lovely venues and our lovely Hosts to assist you with anything or any connection.

Is this a dating or singles event? 
It is not. This event is strictly intended for those looking to expand and explore their roommate options. While at the same time broadening their social, career or leisure contacts.

~~

Do you screen the attendees?
Generally - we do not screen those whom register. We do, however - greatly value the input and feedback we hear from participants about each other. If we meet a participant or learn from fellow participants - that one is not someone that others or ourselves would enjoy meeting - we will respectfully decline current and/or future participation.

Are you affiliated with any 'Meet-Up' groups?
We think 'Meet-Up' is a lovely free service that gives those of similar interests the opportunity to connect. We do question businesses that promote their events through "Meet-Up" groups - only to redirect you to their own website. Some companies tout that they partner with many organizations including Craigslist offerings and 'Meet-Up' groups for their events. We do not.

What happens if the event is sold out? 
We wish we could accommodate everyone! Unfortunately, the fun goes quick! You can email info@speedLAroomie.com for information as to the process of being added to the wait-list.  Also, it is a good idea to keep checking back on our website as sometimes reservations become available at the last minute. We are continually updating our event calendar.

What time should I show up for the Event?
Published start times can be found in the event description. Please try to avoid doing anything unsafe in your attempt to arrive to the event on time - we do like to wait for all participants to arrive. This may cause an event to start late but we feel a perfect opportunity to have a lovely refreshment, settle in and mingle should you wish.

How do I reserve my place? 
Simply select your city from the menu for a listing of events in your area. Register online and you're all set! No paper tickets are required. You will be sent a confirmation from us and your name will be noted on our Guest List.

~~

What is a SpeedLA Roomie ‘Connect-Card’ match?
A ‘Connect-Card’ match means you checked each other on your 'Connect-Card'. Your email address and first name will be exchanged with this person or persons 24 hours after the event. Only SpeedLA Roomie participants whom garner matches are notified approx. 24 hours after the event.

How long will I chat with each potential roommate?
Typically you will have 5-6 minutes at a time. Sometimes, for our larger events, this may be shortened by 1 or 2 minutes to accommodate all of the participants in a timely fashion.

Can I return for free if I don't get a match at an event?
We take a different approach to returning guests; those that receive matches, are quite popular and absolutely lovely - are often invited back with discounts or with our compliments. This ensures a fabulous pool of participants that others want to meet.

Is Food included with my SpeedLA Roomie ticket price?
From time to time venues may provide light nibbles for the guests. This is at the venue's discretion.

How long does a SpeedLA Roomie event last? 
The length of an event is based on the number of daters in attendance. Generally, our events last about 2 hours including intermission.

Can I come with my friend or friends? 
Our hosts will gladly accommodate seating for all ticketed members of your party. If you would like to be seated together please let us know.

How Many People Will I Meet? 
SpeedLA Roomie events vary in size, anywhere from 14 - 24 professionals register for any given event.

Can I pay without doing it through the Internet? Register/Info
Payment can only be accepted through the website. We only accept payment via our secure and encrypted checkout systems. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us directly at 1-866-WE SPEED.

What if I don't have the ability to act like a lady or gentleman?
Oh dear - how unfortunate. We do have a zero tolerance for any rudeness - of any sort. We attract such great professionals but find - as in life - not everyone is ideal. Our participants are also our product and we go to great lengths to ensure everyone meets professionals like themselves. Behavior short of lovely will result in a participant being banned from the company. This may upset some but we feel our attendees as a whole appreciate the extra effort and we hope you do too.

Can you tell me more about your promotion for Cancer Awareness?
We are super excited to announce our partnership with The Joan Gaeta Foundation for Lung Cancer Awareness. Our 'Nights For Suzanne' is a great way to give back and make great roomie connections while doing it! Donate to the Joan Gaeta Foundation or any Cancer charity of your choice in the amount of the ticket price - let us know you did - and we'll add you to the guest list of your desired event. It's that simple.
