event booking and planning process at restaurants and other venues.
Using the reach of its partners, the Gather Booking Network allows
restaurants and venues to tap into a larger audience by providing new
and diverse ways to promote their businesses in the top places where
event planners go to find venues and book events. Venues are listed on
partners' sites and showcased in relevant search results to generate
more leads. When planners find a venue and submit an event request, it's
seamlessly connected via Gather — resulting in a streamlined booking
process and an exceptional customer experience.

"BizBash brings a tremendous amount of expertise and resources in the
event planning space to our vast network of customers," said Nick
Miller, co-founder and CEO at Gather. "We're committed to connecting our
venues with the largest network of planners and diners in the world, and
the addition of BizBash to the Gather Booking Network brings us one step
closer to that goal. We're excited to unveil additional partners in the
coming months."
