Keep Track of Everything About Your Attendees with Social Tables

Okay, so your diagram is perfect. The rounds are spaced correctly, the stage and buffet tables are in the right places, the wiring is mapped out, and the local vendor is on the same page thanks to real-time collaboration. Great!

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…

No two event spaces are exactly alike. There are endless variations in room shape, table size, chair width, and so on.

Work with the Best Leads Every Time with Lead Scoring

Sometimes you miss out on the best leads. You know how this works. A potential client submits an RFP and, at a glance, it looks like a solid match for your property.

We all know what it’s like to work with too many cooks in the kitchen—especially in event planning. But sometimes your event is complex and you need a lot of collaborators on one project, working on the same diagram. In situations like this, it can be difficult to coordinate the activity of different individuals, even when everyone has the same objective. Our customers have told us that they go to great lengths to avoid this kind of confusion. Some even make a second version of the original diagram in Social Tables when they’re working with multiple collaborators. That way, no…
