Cvent, a market leader in meetings, events, and hospitality technology, today announced that it has acquired Social Tables, the leading event diagramming, seating, and collaboration platform. More than 5,000 organisations and hospitality brands, including Under Armour, Live Nation, Hyatt, The Venetian, ClubCorp, and Forbes, have utilised Social Tables to help them develop and plan nearly 4.5 million events.

Through its powerful collaboration engine, planners and venues use Social Tables’ Event Services Solution to diagram events, create seating charts, and share files.

The company embodies our vision of making face-to-face events more successful,” said Dan Berger, CEO and Founder of Social Tables. “As a fellow DC-area software company, this is even more special for the DC tech community. We’re looking forward to continuing to work with all of our customers to offer our market-leading solutions as part of Cvent. Together, we will improve how events are sourced, managed, and executed.”
“We would not be where we are today without our dedicated customers and employees,” continued Berger. “It takes a village to accomplish what we’ve done, and I couldn’t be more grateful to each of them. I’m truly excited about the additional opportunities we will have going forward with Cvent under Reggie’s leadership.”
“Over the past 19 years, we have helped power the global meetings and events ecosystem, connecting planners with the venues they need to host their events,” said Reggie Aggarwal, CEO and Founder of Cvent. “With Social Tables, we can offer new ways for our event and hospitality customers to work better together to manage events. We’ve known and respected Dan since the inception of Social Tables, and we are extremely excited to welcome him and the rest of the Social Tables team to the Cvent family.”
