Your guests are finding you online – why wait to capture their business?

Busy event organizers are using the internet to research venues for their large parties every day. With GamePlan’s group dining reservation technology, you can be the first to present your event offerings and banquet packages, offer a quote, and convert visitors to bookings – all automated, and all on your own website.

GamePlan’s booking widget allows visitors to view your rooms & menus, check availability, generate price quotes, and book online with a credit card guarantee.

Follow the instructions below to add the booking widget to your website. If you’re not already using GamePlan at your venue, chat with us or email [email protected] today to get started.

Step 1: Generate your booking widget code

You can create a new widget by logging into your Venue Dashboard and selecting the “Widgets” section.
