Professionals in the City’s two-hour speed-dating sessions for professionals keep a fast pace, preventing any awkward moments and keeping spirits high. The company hosts multiple mixers every week in various locations, accommodating both busy schedules and people who teleport involuntarily. At each low-key get-together, singles strike up brief conversations and take notes, which they later use for reference and to help find one another on an online tracking system. Professionals in the City unites individuals with demographic commonalities, such as Baby Boomers, Jewish singles in their 20s and 30s, and birdwatchers who wear toupees. Check the events calendar for upcoming mixers in the D.C. area.

Professionals in the City

Seeing that DC’s professional community was in need of organized, after-work events where relaxed socializing and networking could transpire, Michael Karlan founded Professionals in the City as a unique way of uniting the community through newly forged romantic and business connections. His company's rapid-fire approach to building rapports was recently featured on the Today Show, due to its ability to quickly connect its 200,000 members at more than 1,000 events. Appropriate for singles, the romantically attached, or those accidentally attached by Velcro, the events range from intimate happy hours and theme parties to teeming galas and tours.

Speed-dating sessions move at a brisk clip in DC's most buzz-worthy bars and restaurants, where professionals are sequestered into congruous categories according to age, religious inclination, and sneaker-brand preference. Ideal for out-of-towners or patrons with first-date jitters, swift dialogue offers the chance to bypass awkward moments, and within 48 hours after events, an online-dating system connects pairs that clicked. Along with speed events, Professionals in the City also hosts outdoorsy outings, speed networking events, and a dating-centric lecture series to keep its members active, connected, and well-informed.
