Pathable, a provider of event-centric i-networking platforms, announced yesterday it would acquire competitor the Social Collective in a cash deal. The Social Collective founders, known for serving larger events for clients like Oracle and SXSW, will help migrate current customers to the Pathable platform before pursuing other opportunities. The acquisition marks further consolidation in the market, following EventVue's closure a year ago.
