Likelihood to Recommend

Cvent Event Management

Well suited:1. Quick or complex Registration pages for any event, conference or webcast for 10+ attendees allowing for details and confirmations to be presented and details sent 2. Allow for notifications to hold dates for upcoming events 3. Allow for a temperature check in the form of a survey of a group for making decisions, checking needs, etc. (open or blind send) Not as suited:1. Trying to make the wrong Cvent tool for the job at hand. (example, using standard flex registration tool for one on one appointments instead of the appointment tool)

Meeting Play

Well suited for customization of gamification. It gets beyond basic off-the-shelf gamification most app providers have. The admin dashboard is easy to use. We would like to be able to copy the framework of the site over at a reduced cost, and not pay as much for the 2nd and 3rd instance. Pricing for volume had to be negotiated and isn't standard operating procedure.

Cons

Cvent Event Management

  • Feedback Cross-Event Reporting: I would love to see [Cvent Event Management] add event feedback survey reporting to the cross-event reports. I spend a good amount of time collecting this data manually and manipulating it for a full year of events.
  • OnArrival Application Login: If you make an error logging in 3 times in a row, it locks you out for a good chunk of time. Would like a two-dept verification to avoid.
  • Networking: Before covid, we used to have a good amount of in-person networking opportunities for [Cvent Event Management] users that were free- now it is really only [Cvent] connect for face-to-face events it seems?

Meeting Play

  • Live chat from the admin dashboard, 24/7

It's the most fully encompassed, end-to-end event management platform we have been able to find. From sourcing to surveys, RFPs and ROI, Cvent really does do it all. Best of all, you get to pick what products you need, so you won't need to pay for anything you won't use

It does take some time to learn the system and the help articles are not always up to date, but it is also fairly intuitive and once you learn the basics, you can do very complex things without having to learn complex procedures.

I have very rarely needed support, but when I did, it seemed that there was an underlying push for a webinar, training session, or multiple phone calls. If I have a question or a need, that should be addressed nothing else.

Great account management. Trust. In our 3rd year now, working with the same account manager helps us not re-invent the wheel each year. Other regional sales kick-offs were told of this gamification and they've since adopted Meeting Play.

It would have been nice during implementation if we had received more pointers on how to organize our parked report folders, libraries, etc. to avoid the mess we find ourselves in today. If we had known ahead of time the limitations we could have planned better.

Alternatives Considered

Cvent Event Management

Our existing relationship with [Cvent Event Management] led us to stick with them when it came time to choose a virtual platform, and it certainly delivered and showed that it had the capability to be the polished, yet simple, platform that resonated best with our audience. The new virtual offering was still going through some growing pains when we used it, but it has the potential to be a major competitor in the virtual event space, and they're already well established in the in-person event management space.

Meeting Play is well beyond SurveyMonkey if you use customizable programming mode.
