ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gather, the leading provider of event management software, today announced the addition of Wedding Spot to the Gather Booking Network. Wedding Spot is the primary marketplace for connecting engaged couples with wedding venues, and brings unparalleled wedding industry expertise to the Gather Booking Network.
Wedding Spot will play an integral role in helping Gather Booking Network customers better tap into the booming wedding industry. With a network of over 12,000 potential wedding venues nationwide, Wedding Spot is the ultimate destination for couples looking to find the perfect location to celebrate. Users can tailor venue searches based on what they are looking for, including price, location, style, capacity, and more.
"Wedding Spot is a valued brand and beloved tool for wedding venue selection,” said Yotam Soen, General Manager for Wedding Spot. “Our partnership with Gather gives a more robust experience to couples, who will notice an improved venue outreach and booking experience when they engage with venues on the platform. For participating venue operators, showcasing their space on Wedding Spot will enable them to tap into a deeply engaged set of potential customers."
Launched with the goal of simplifying the event booking and planning process, the Gather Booking Network allows restaurants and venues to tap into a larger audience by providing more ways to promote their businesses in the top places where event planners go to find and book events. Venues are listed on partners’ sites and showcased in relevant search results to generate more leads. When planners find a venue and submit an event request, they’re seamlessly connected via Gather — resulting in a streamlined booking process and exceptional customer experience.
“Adding Wedding Spot as a partner gives us and our customers the opportunity to tap into a thriving area of the industry,” said Nick Miller, co-founder and CEO at Gather. “Wedding Spot allows couples to search for venues based on capacity, services, style, location, and budget. That’s why they’re one of the best generators of highly qualified leads and the perfect addition to the Gather Booking Network. We’re thrilled to add another layer of consumers, event planners, restaurants and venues, as it’s all about seamlessly connecting one another.”
Wedding Spot joins existing Gather Booking Network partners that include Yelp, EVENTup and BizBash, with more to be announced in the coming months.
Gather is re-imagining the way events are planned, managed and executed, empowering thousands of restaurants and venues across the U.S. to successfully grow their events business. Gather’s cloud-based platform helps teams streamline their event sales and management workflow, from initial inquiry through day-of execution, simplifying event planning for venues and their customers.
