Cvent Acquires Social Tables
In an effort to improve collaboration between planners and venues while growing its market share, event technology provider, Cvent, has acquired Social Tables.
Social Tables offers the world’s largest database of to-scale function space. Planners and venues use Social Tables’ Event Services Solution to diagram events, create seating charts and share files.
“With Social Tables, we can offer new ways for our event and hospitality customers to work better together to manage events,” said Reggie Aggarwal, CEO and founder of Cvent.
He continued, “We’ve known and respected Dan (Berger) since the inception of Social Tables, and we are extremely excited to welcome him and the rest of the Social Tables team to the Cvent family.”
Cvent executives estimate that one in three full-service hotels in North America uses Social Tables’ event diagramming, seating and collaboration platform to work with planners, supporting more than 100,000 meetings and events each month.
More than 5,000 organizations and hospitality brands, including Under Armour, Live Nation, Hyatt, The Venetian, ClubCorp and Forbes, have used Social Tables for nearly 4.5 million events.
The Cvent Supplier Network interface provides a powerful online search tool for planners to more easily find venues for all of their events. By combining this with Social Tables’ function space content, planners can better visualize the event space, select the right venue, and collaborate to quickly create and edit diagrams and renderings.
“Cvent is the clear global leader in event management and we are thrilled to continue the Social Tables journey with them,” said Dan Berger, CEO and founder of Social Tables. “The company embodies our vision of making face-to-face events more successful.”
He continued, “We’re looking forward to continuing to work with all of our customers to offer our market-leading solutions as part of Cvent. Together, we will improve how events are sourced, managed and executed.”
