Product Update: Create Events Right From Lead Capture Tools

Event planners think ahead. When they’re searching for potential event spaces on behalf of their clients—whether on your website or the Social Tables sourcing platform—you can be certain they’re also sketching the best layout options and designing the whole experience. Often, your best bet as a property is to give them as many planning tools upfront as you’re able to.

We’re always exploring new ways to give you more power to do that, and with our latest update, we’ve taken a big step in that direction.  

Now, when a planner encounters your lead capture form anywhere online—either on our sourcing platform, on a dedicated vanity site, or embedded directly on your website—they’ll have the option of creating their event’s diagram right then and there.

And it couldn’t be easier to do. Once a planner identifies the perfect room in your property, they can click the new ‘Create Event’ button to be automatically sent to a diagram depicting the room’s floorplans. You’ll see the new feature below. 

Why properties love this

If planners have fewer barriers to imagining their events in your space, you’ll have fewer barriers to closing the best deals faster.

With this new feature, when you find the perfect space, you can begin designing your event. You’ll save a ton of time now that you don’t have to wait around for a property to respond to your RFP. And with that extra bandwidth, you could always choose to… send more RFPs and create more diagrams!
