EventUp acquired by Tripleseat
EventUp started in 2011 with a bold idea: to change the way people plan and book events. Nine years later, it’s amazing to realize that we have done just that. Today, EventUp is the largest online marketplace for event planners: featuring over 10,000 venues in 300 U.S. cities, and covering all types of event spaces. We’ve achieved this success by focusing on an issue that too many were overlooking: creating a space for event planners to easily find and connect with event venues.
We have helped our planners uncover some amazing event spaces: from traditional locations like restaurants and banquet halls to fun and inspiring locations like art galleries and warehouses, and even places many wouldn’t have considered: unique and amazing lofts, penthouses, and estates. Through the whole process, we have grown EventUp from an idea to a thriving company.
We are pleased to announce that EventUp, which has been operating under Gather since 2018, is joining the team at Tripleseat to continue our mission of making event planning simple, intuitive, and fun. Tripleseat is the leading event management software platform, serving over 7,000 restaurants, hotels, and unique venues globally. Their aim is the same as ours, and together, we will serve and grow the hospitality and events industry.
We are so excited about what this news means for our customers, the EventUp and Tripleseat teams, and for the future of the event planning industry.
Stay tuned for more updates as we move forward in this exciting next chapter!
