Company Summary

Gablit brings together scheduled activities and events from every industry and makes them searchable using time, location, relevance and social filters. This is then further enhanced via recommendations, privately shared by friends or curated by those in the know. Our goal is to erase the inefficiency in the way information is distributed by these tastemakers to those that want to get out there and do more of what they love.
