Cvent Event Management

We run our standard conferences through Cvent Event Management, but we also do our sponsorship sales, service award pin sales and legislative day appointment requests through Cvent. We mapped out those “events” to match their items to the sections in Cvent (i.e., A sponsor package is an admission item, the items that make up the package are sessions, etc.).

Pros

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

Cvent Event Management

  • Cost - While I conducted a VERY thorough review of the market to make sure that Cvent was exactly the product that we needed, it was a bit of an uphill battle convincing everyone about the cost. My review however did clearly compare a few other competitors offerings and their pricing - and in that review it was clear that Cvent was in fact the most cost effective. The sticker shock sometimes is hard to get over.
  • Movement of Staff - While every single person that I've connected with at Cvent has been UNBELIEVABLY smart and so amazing to work with, most do not stay in the role working with their customers for more than a year or two. This is of course GREAT for them because there is incredible upward mobility and Cvent clearly hires good people, but sometimes it's difficult to remember who my new person is.

If and when my new company starts having events I know for a fact that I would go straight to Cvent mostly for the ease of use along with the plethora of options they offer to their customers. Not only that, but my current boss is very particular about how things look for the public so this helps make the choice that easy

I think the platform is really user friendly, but some people might find it a bit loaded. There are a lot of options, a lot of tabs, a lot of features, but everything was built logically with the customers' and the planners' needs in mind

Because of how user-friendly it is, how professional looking it is, and how easy it does my job. With only a few minor tweaks to be desired, Cvent Event Management stacks up beautifully against the competitors and is my favorite site I have used so far. I would recommend it to anyone.

Alternatives Considered

Cvent Event Management

They do not stack up, unless you want a simple invite and registration with basic personal questions. Cvent offers details and customization not only for the planner (i.e reporting, check-in, payment, questions) but for the attendee as well (all information in one place, quick time updates, etc.). The reason was simple you get more for your money and it is incredibly time saving and efficient with budgeting tools, reporting, archiving and having all information stored in one place. Did I mention you can access it from anywhere, I sometimes have to work at home or in other cities this allows me to jump on any computer and begin the work

Return on Investment

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.
