Gather & OpenTable Team Up to Make Event Planning Even Easier

By Caroline Cox | 2 min read

We launched the Gather Booking Network in the summer of 2018 as a first-of-its-kind marketplace that connects event planners and venues like never before. Since then, we’ve acquired top venue marketplace EVENTup and built partnerships with other key venue marketplaces like Yelp, Wedding Spot, and BizBash. Through those partnerships, we’ve created a network that connects over 15 million potential planners and diners searching for event spaces to participating venues.

 

Now, we’re thrilled to announce that OpenTable and Gather have partnered to make finding and booking an event a more seamless experience.

 

OpenTable is the world’s leading provider of online restaurant reservations, with more than 50,000 restaurants globally using its software to seat over 120 million diners monthly. OpenTable’s Private Dining program helps diners easily find a space to host a private event and makes it easy for restaurants and venues using Gather to market and manage leads for their private dining programs. Through this partnership, private dining leads will flow straight into Gather. This way, restaurants can respond instantly and manage all of their leads and events from one place.

We’re beyond excited about this partnership because it’s yet another way that we’re giving our clients even more visibility and helping expand the reach of their brand.

Along with getting access to more event planners, Gather clients can now track how many OpenTable Private Dining leads turn into successful events and see its impact on their business as a whole.

It’s been an incredible journey since we launched the Gather Booking Network. And while it will continue to evolve, our commitment remains the same: to create the best platform out there to uniquely enable our customers to grow their business. We can’t wait to see what the future of this partnership brings.
