Share All The Right Room Options With New Lead Capture Tools

June 5, 2018

We’ve heard from event planners and sales managers alike that it should be easier to share a full list of ideal rooms and floorplans with clients.

At Social Tables, we don’t think your diagram is complete until every attendee is accounted for—and that’s the thinking behind the most recent update to our attendee…
