Did you know that 90% of Tripleseat employees have worked in restaurants, venues, and hotels at all levels? That means we understand first hand how challenging it can be to be the only professional on your team responsible for booking and managing your company’s private events business, and that sometimes you may need a little help and inspiration from others who get you.
Tripleseat is more than just a catering and event management platform — we’re a hospitality community. We offer multiple ways for hospitality sales and marketing professionals to learn, share ideas, and connect with each other.
Looking to be a part of our community? Check out ways that you are able to interact with other hospitality professionals, even if you don’t use Tripleseat!
Looking to connect?
Tripleseat Party People
Tripleseat Party People is a program that is part hospitality community, part rewards program. We created an online community specifically for Tripleseat customers where you can share your experiences, learn industry knowledge, and connect with other event professionals, all while being rewarded for your participation.
We post challenges every week that you can complete at your own pace, such as reading blog posts, answering questions, or uploading photos. By participating, you earn points that can then be cashed in for prizes, from Tripleseat swag to big-ticket items like an Apple Watch or an iPad.
The best part is you’ll be helping others at the same time! You can even post your own questions to the discussion board and get feedback from others in the industry. The prizes are a fun and well-deserved incentive, but the program also benefits your personal lives and professional careers.
We have two instances of the program: One for restaurant professionals and one for hotel professionals. Visit these sites to join:
- Restaurant Party People Program (Join Code: partypeople21)
- Tripleseat Hotel Party People Program (No Join Code Needed)
Event Manager Facebook Community
While Party People is a place for Tripleseat customers, our Event Manager Facebook Community is a place for anyone in hospitality, whether you use Tripleseat or not. As a growing community, it has become a place to network with other event professionals. We post industry resources, get group feedback on relevant and timely industry questions, and share webinars and events that are happening to help career growth.
If you’re looking for some virtual face-to-face interaction, we have a place for that too! Our Social Hour virtual roundtable was started in 2020 as a way to engage and help hospitality professionals stay in touch and connect during the pandemic when most found themselves furloughed and faced with uncertainty.
It was such a success that we now host monthly round table discussions with sales and event managers and will often bring in industry experts to share their insights and hospitality experience. It’s a great chance to virtually connect, share ideas, and find out how other hospitality professionals manage and execute their events in a casual, open forum setting.
The team at Tripleseat publishes almost 200 blog posts a year, all tailored around ways to educate, inspire, and help you succeed in your career. We often have posts focused on industry trends, marketing, revenue-generating ideas, and how to most effectively and efficiently use Tripleseat. Easily find what you are looking for by using the search bar at the top of the page, and make sure to keep this page bookmarked!
Did you know that Tripleseat also publishes a magazine twice a year? We wanted a publication where hospitality professionals were the focus, so we created Seated magazine. It’s written specifically with hospitality sales and event managers in mind, and covers an array of timely and relevant topics, including interviews with Tripleseat customers, career tips, and highlights of current industry news and trends.
