Today we are excited to announce our strategic partnership with Gather Technologies, an event management platform for event spaces, as inaugural members of the Gather Booking Network. Wedding Spot joins Yelp, BizBash, and other soon-to-be-announced consumer platforms as partners in connecting hundreds of thousands of potential customers to local wedding venues. This partnership is our latest step in bridging the gap between venues and couples.
What this means for couples For couples using Wedding Spot, this partnership brings on new, fresh venues to the platform that, powered by Gather’s technology, ensure a transparent and seamless booking experience. Here’s what’s not changing: the search experience you know and love, starting from the home page or regional search results, through the Spot Estimate page, and through initial outreach to venues, will stay the same. What couples may notice is swifter, more contextual follow-up from Wedding Spot venues that also use Gather.
What this means for venues For Gather venues joining Wedding Spot, showcasing their space on our platform will unleash the flow of warm leads that translate to more bookings. For venues that don’t use Gather, everything stays the same!
Celebrate what’s ahead! Wedding Spot is always looking to improve the venue booking experience for both couples and venues--and this partnership enables us to deliver real value to both audiences. Our product integration with Gather is the first of many exciting developments we have in store, so stay tuned for more announcements later this year!
