September 25, 2018

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 25, 2018--Gather, the leading provider of event management software, today announced the addition of Bizly to the Gather Booking Network. Bizly is a trusted enterprise marketplace that makes it easy for employees to book events at leading hotels, restaurants, and other hospitality venues, and brings a rapidly growing set of Fortune 500 customers to the Gather Booking Network.

With thousands of hotels and restaurants in its roster, Bizly is dedicated to serving the modern workforce by eliminating the pain points associated with finding and booking event space. As smaller corporate events and meetings grow in popularity, more companies are looking to create tailored experiences for team offsites, client events, and other corporate gatherings.

“Companies are looking for ways to drive visibility and ease around booking events,” said Ron Shah, Founder and CEO at Bizly. “Our partnership with Gather will give our users access to thousands of additional venues and a streamlined booking process which delivers efficiency and savings.”

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.

“The addition of Bizly to the Gather Booking Network will expose our customers to a whole new audience in the corporate events industry,” said Nick Miller, co-founder and CEO at Gather. “We’re excited to see the Booking Network growing and connecting even more planners and venues to create a truly seamless booking experience, a vision shared by the team at Bizly.”

Bizly joins existing Gather Booking Network partners that include Yelp, EVENTup, BizBash and Wedding Spot, with more to be announced in the coming months.
