A Mechanism for recommending get-together venue

Imagine you are a party organizer and you are going to initiate a dinner party within a group of people. You must be able to propose the restaurant, date and time that can suit most of participants to join. To do it, you have to know all the locations of all potential participants and find out some centered place that make everyone comfortable. There are many existing APPs to help you. You ask everyone to tell you their locations. Then, with the help of map APP, you figure out where the central area is for all the participants. After that, you go to restaurant recommendation APP, define your preferred area and find out the restaurants there. You might want to pick up several candidates for people to choose. If participants cannot reach to consensus, you have to do it all over againto make another proposal. In this tedious process, you can only rely on your own judgement most of the time. Why not make it smarter? We already have some many good APPs. Let's take advantages of them to make a party planner's life easier. All you need to do is to provide some basic information or preference of the party. Leave it to us to collect information from participants, make proposals, and collect feedbacks, until everything is settled. And by 'us', I mean a small add-on to the existing chat APP.

This invention provides an intelligent way of recommending get-together venue for a group of people. As the event initiator, one only needs to specify some key requirements of the event, and a list of possible places will be provided automatically based onthe analysis of the attendees' location, consumptive habits, and other preferences.
