Gather Adds BizBash to Growing List of Event Booking Network Partners

July 31, 2018

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 31, 2018--Gather, the leading provider of event management software, today announced the addition of BizBash, the premier outlet for fresh ideas, trends, and vendors for the event and meeting industry, to its growing partnership program, the Gather Booking Network.

Launched earlier this month, the Gather Booking Network connects restaurants and event venues with over 15 million potential event planners and opens the door to the $30 billion dollars spent on events and parties in the U.S. each year. BizBash joins a growing list of partners that includes Yelp and EVENTup.

“We are so excited to work with Gather to help propel the event industry forward, offering venues and their clients everything they need to make booking events a quick, streamlined process,” said David Adler, CEO and founder of BizBash Media. “We believe as a unique discovery engine in the events industry, partnering with Gather will add huge benefit for our almost two million annual users of Bizbash.com.”

The Gather Booking Network was launched with the goal of simplifying the event booking and planning process at restaurants and other venues. Using the reach of its partners, the Gather Booking Network allows restaurants and venues to tap into a larger audience by providing new and diverse ways to promote their businesses in the top places where event planners go to find venues 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, it’s seamlessly connected via Gather — resulting in a streamlined booking process and an exceptional customer experience.

“BizBash brings a tremendous amount of expertise and resources in the event planning space to our vast network of customers,” said Nick Miller, co-founder and CEO at Gather. “We’re committed to connecting our venues with the largest network of planners and diners in the world, and the addition of BizBash to the Gather Booking Network brings us one step closer to that goal. We’re excited to unveil additional partners in the coming months.”
