Radio One now finds listeners a 'Valentine'

MUMBAI: Put on your best perfume, think of interesting opening lines and leave the rest to Radio One FM 94.3. Mentos presents Radio One Speed Dating, a totally fun event where single, interesting and eligible guys and girls get together for a fun evening.

Speed Dating is an exciting concept and is based on the psychological evidence that most people make up their mind of whether they like someone in the first 60 seconds of interacting with them.

Perfetti India and Radio One have signed up a deal to conduct Speed Dating sessions at leading nightclubs at 4 locations across the country i.e. Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai.

Speaking on the concept and success of Speed dating over the years, Radio One FM 94.3 vice president Shariq Patel says, "This is the third speed dating event we are organizing and the registrations have increased with each event. This is also the second time in a row that Mentos has partnered with us. Given the previous years experience this year Mentos has signed up for the event across all 4 of our stations i.e. Delhi, Chennai and Bangalore apart from Mumbai."

Perfetti marketing head Samir Sunjea adds "Speed dating is a perfect fit for Mentos since it caters to our target age group. It is a 'fresh' concept in India and therefore echoes our brand's core intrinsic values.

Moreover, the Speed Dating concept adheres to the 'Mentos Life' philosophy - a way in which to avoid the dull and usual and to adopt a fun and innovative approach to ordinary life."
