Hello, ever-evolving technological revolution! Tech tools are practically synonyms with events these days – #eventtech, anyone?! In the last month alone we’ve found ourselves delving into mobile conference apps, using the latest in registration software, and keeping our eyes peeled for more tools to make our lives easier.
We recently stumbled upon one of those tools where we had to learn more – a software that aides planners with something as basic yet essential as the floor plan has been made so much easier and accessible via DC-based start-up, Social Tables. A CAD-based software that apparently takes just 10 minutes to learn and allows venues to upload to scale diagrams of their space into a database called venue finder. The software facilitates drag and drop seating chart creation, guest list and meal management, as well as online team sharing for up to the minute collaboration. And of course because we still need to stuff our clipboards with the essentials, all data can be exported, lists created and floor plans printed. Not to mention, post-event attendee reports – because there’s always something that can be better next time!
Disclaimer: while we think it sounds great, we have yet to USE Social Tables. Has anyone given it a try? We’d love to hear your feedback on your experience!
