Gather is at the forefront of bridging
technology and hospitality

Our platform and marketplace help great venues to be discovered, booked, and experienced by people looking to have extraordinary events. That's why national brands, hospitality groups, and independent venues invite us in, trusting us to help their events business run better and grow larger.
