I love, love, love all things events and technology. If you can’t tell by my tweets, Facebook posts and all my other social media interactions, I love to talk about events and the tools that help us do what we do better. In June, I partnered with an organization called Pogby to bring you PlannerTech – an event technology showcase. This weekly blog series is going to help continue to expose you to new tools you need to be aware of as an event planner. Also, in case you missed it, PlannerTech could be coming soon to your area!
Today, we’re talking about Social Tables
Your name: Dan Berger
Company/Tool Name: Social Tables
What is the “problem” that your tool seeks to solve?
We’re solving two problems. From a planner’s perspective, we make designing seating charts fun and seamless through several tools built specifically for event planners. From a guest’s perspective, we eliminate awkward conversations by letting guests of assigned table events interact with one another before or after the event.
What is the best audience for this tool? Corporate events? Social? Other? Large? Small?
Weddings and galas or any other assigned table event that has between 100 and 1,000 guests.
What does your tool help event planners do better?
Social Tables saves planners at least 4 hours per event. We have consulted hundreds of event planners to build the tools they need most.
How is your tool different from/better than the competition?
We are the first social seating.
What is the single coolest feature of Social Tables?
Not only does Social Tables facilitate the seating of an event, we offer social integration which allows attendees to connect with people before the event even happens.
Three things: (1) We are currently free. (2) We love feedback (email the founder at email@example.com). (3) We’re releasing version 2.0 of our product in September… so get ready for an awesome product upgrade!
