Likelihood to Recommend

A2Z Events

Well suited for sessions and events information with the exception of large white space areas when viewed. Depending on how your organization is set up the only "less appropriate" area for us would be the actual accounting side, but that is because our accounting department prefers to maintain invoices, etc out of their own system. However, the invoices provided by A2Z does aid them when the are reconciling to their own system

Cvent Event Management

In my field, Cvent in very important to track and keep up with attendees. We have to do a lot of reporting, so Cvent tracks all of this and allows for a much smoother process. It also allows for everything to be stored in one spot. There is no digging through emails to see who you sent invitations to because that is all in Cvent and you can see all emails that were sent from Cvent to each attendee.

Pros

A2Z Events

  • Very easy for the exhibitors and the attendees to navigate the floor.
  • It looks very crisp and is easy to print.
  • The online exhibitor search field is awesome - so easy for our attendees to map out who they want to visit.
  • The support team is very responsive and the training opportunities are flexible.

Cvent Event Management

  • Request for Proposals - our third-party sourcing agent gathers the information that we provide in a Meeting Request Form so they know exactly what we need in a property. We are able to see the top properties based on our criteria in real-time through their portal. No more sending Excel sheets back and forth!
  • The invitation process is streamlined, and in conjunction with dynamic reporting, offers key stakeholders the information they need. The automation of reporting and metrics is more accurate than doing it manually and is also much faster.
  • Integration - we currently use the CrowdCompass mobile app which offers seamless integration with Cvent.
  • Budget - all key stakeholders are able to view our budget categories for each event and at the end of the event, have access to the actual expenses.

Cons

A2Z Events

  • Coming from software where I had a huge amount of access to the "backend", it would be nice to be able to manipulate areas of the Exhibit Floorplan a little easier with regard to items like tables, chairs, stages, etc. Maybe add some icons that could be pasted into the floorplan for faster success?
  • The agenda within A2Z does not give you the ability to host on your own conference site.
  • The agenda view is sometimes perceived as being too long, there's a lot of extra "white space".

Cvent Event Management

  • The badge designer is a little clunky and difficult to use.
  • I’d love to see their add-on modules priced differently (flat fees vs. per registration)
  • They’re membership module is only for individual memberships, we have organization based memberships, so we’re not able to use it.

There are a lot of different ways to do one task within Cvent which can be confusing. Additionally, there are a few things that you can only do at set up of an event and if you forget to do them your event registration will not run as well.

I've had nothing but positive interactions with the Cvent support team. In particular I've found they can be "over-helpful" and I have to ask them to walk me through vs doing so I can learn. They are always happy to do so. They are also very proactive on responding, following up and emailing instructions on things they assist with so we have the knowledge for the future.

The only real insight I have is to be open to learning a new system and willing to do what it takes to maintain consistency throughout the system.

Alternatives Considered

A2Z Events

A2Z is so much better than ExpoCad. It is easy for the exhibit sales team to use and it is easy for the attendees and vendors to use. Pulling the program book is a cinch now. I don't understand how people still use ExpoCad?!

Cvent Event Management

Below is a listing of other event management products that I reviewed. There are a LOT of them. What I found was that each had a niche audience or market that they were focused on. While this is helpful and each works very well for that market, Cvent offers a flexibility in event creation, look, and general offerings to be a suitable management tool for a MUCH wider variety of events. All of the products below were also more expensive once all the bells and whistles were added in to the proposals. And while Cvent often seems like the big green monster eating up all the competition, the fact that I can log in to one location and do every part of the event as I need when I need and not remember a host of separate event tool names and log ins is a HUGE help.Products reviewed: -Swoogo-Bizzabo-Eventbrite-Hubilo-EventsAir-Whova-EventBase (just for event apps)

Return on Investment

A2Z Events

  • Positive - it provides one place from which primary players in the conference could pull information. A2Z maintains consistency and lowers the discrepancy issue when everyone tries to keep their own little database.
  • Positive - Time Saver.
  • No negative that I can recall.

Cvent Event Management

  • I am able to provide comprehensive reporting on open rates and CTR, which at the end of the day, helps us as an organization monitor and follow up with the customers we have invited to make sure they plan to attend. This could attribute to higher ROI numbers.
  • The financial reporting has helped us be more accurate with our full financial roll up to corporate in terms of budgeting. Because of that, we can easily track expenses and calculate total return on investment at the end of the year. We had a conversion rate at our events of 63% this year! Amazing!
  • The integrations with Marketo & SFDC have been crucial for us in triggering automated alerts to our sales org, ultimately allowing them to easily follow up with customers to close the loop on the event attendees' experience, thus furthering the sale and gaining revenue.
