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 your product?

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.

This weekly series spotlights a new tech tool that is designed to help make planning events much more seamless. Whether it’s using event software to track every detail from start to finish or mobile apps that deliver content to attendees’ fingertips, these technologies allow planners to divert their stress to more critical issues like deciding which napkin color looks best.
