RE: [Dallas-Professional-Singles] Appalled, Embarassed, and Disappointed (READ BELOW)

First I concur that this should have been sent to only the RSVP no shows. I am new to the group but have been watching the thread come through all day and it has made me question if I should continue to be a member of this group or not. I am undoubtedly not the only one.

 

I very much enjoy networking events as I am a Corporate Recruiter and would have loved to be part of this event had I been available.  Multiple reminders were sent but when signing up for an event such as this - put it on your calendar.  There are people out there who go to these events not only to make personal connections but for actual business contacts as well. This messes with their livelihood. I agree with Mark – you are part of a group called Professional Singles, one would think that EVERYONE here would know how to use a calendar and could make it to the event. This lack of respect gives me the indication that the 50+ people that signed up for the event and then did now show are supercilious and immature. Certainly not the type of person I would like for a business or personal contact.

One more thing...one might expect this sort of RSVP response from a group called Partying Singles or Loser Singles or My Daddy Gave Me All My Money Singles, but this group is called Professional Singles. I wonder how many so-called professionals regularly take a day off from work without informing the boss, skip work meetings, or don't fulfill their job obligations. If anyone does, he/she/it won't be a professional very long.

I did send reminders, check message boards but I'm appreciating all the responses.

I agree with Maria. I have had events where people didn't show up but not with a big margin. I usually always send out reminder emails.

I have to agree with Chris on this one - the purpose of an RSVP is to let the host know who is coming and you shouldn't have to "confirm" and "reconfirm" when someone RSVP Yes. Everyone here is an adult and should be held accountable for your RSVP.  It should be common courtesy to go in and change your RSVP to no if you aren't coming.

Perhaps the better question is what are you and your associates doing to personally cultivate relationships and friendships?  How about starting with inviting those friends and pressing for commitments.  I guarantee that will lead to faster results and referrals/ recommendations moving forward.

 

In other words, if I'm a host you better believe I've called, confirmed, reconfirmed with my invited group of friends.  If no one else comes, I know I can count on them.

 

Best of luck with your future events.  I'm deleting myself from this group.

As you know yesterday we were host to the Swank event, which was to be a great evening of combining the class and professionalism of a networking event with the social atmosphere that allows subtle flirting.  Going into the event, we had over 53 meetup RSVP's and comments to the effect of "can't wait to meet everyone."  We always anticipate that not all 53 of those RSVP's will show up and figure we can get around 30 or more, but last night was one for the record books.

 

While we were hosting both events in Dallas and San Antonio, I was receiving texts to update me on attendance numbers and overall success (or lack thereof).  While San Antonio completely sold out their tickets, Dallas was only able to get 1 person yes you ready that right 1 person out of the 53 RSVP's.  I literally shook my head after reading the text knowing that our host Holly had invested time in coordinating with the venue, answering your questions on meetup, and finally showing up to host.  I am very disappointed at the many that RSVP'd and did not have the decency to at least let us know they weren't going to make it.  While in your world it is easy to simply not show up, we have a venue that expects a set number of people and also we're just as nervous making sure everyone that shows has a good time.

 

I'm sure some have skipped ahead of this email already, but for those still reading - I need your help.  What exactly is it about Dallas, compared to other Texas cities, where people just don't honor their RSVP's?  Has it been your previous experience where it's totally acceptable to be a flake in this city, or was it something we did ourselves?  My goal is to NOT only do Speed Dating events and throw swanky events for professionals in this city.  In our other cities, we are already planning on booking a Salsa instructor, acrobat dancers, and possibly a fire breather for one of our networking events.  When it comes to Dallas, I can't even get more than 10 people even after 50 something RSVP's.  Your feedback is critical, please respond back to any ideas on how to improve the marketing for this event or insights on the lack of RSVP's.

 

Thanks for your time,
