Likelihood to Recommend

Cvent Event Diagramming (Formerly Social Tables)

Cvent is used by most of the employers I have worked for in the incentive industry. Cvent allows us to do the research, planning, and then implement the program both front and back sides all in one place, so I would easily recommend Cvent to others in my industry who do not use Cvent already.

Vendini

For smaller sports organizations or event productions Vendini is appropriate. It is also better suited for venues where the inventory is primarily general admission or very basic section/row/seat. The platform does not allow for much seating customization on the user's end. I would definitely not recommend Vendini for larger venues.

Pros

Cvent Event Diagramming (Formerly Social Tables)

  • User-friendly. It's easy for us to train other team members/staff/volunteers to use the front-end system for registration and event check-in.
  • Social Tables is great for creating custom room layouts and diagrams.
  • Social tables is customizable. We're able to capture specific information for attendees, and can "tag" them when additional info is needed.

Vendini

  • Interface is pretty easy to use.
  • Event creation process is straightforward.
  • Ability to use on multiple devices (laptop, phone, etc.) is a plus.

Cons

Cvent Event Diagramming (Formerly Social Tables)

  • A development that would be useful would be the ability to reorder the diagrams to a custom order in one event so that when exported as one document, they are in an order that can be customized to flow well for the meeting planner.

Vendini

  • System is often very slow.
  • Limited user ability to customize ticket promotions within the platform.
  • Major issue - not friendly with certain firewalls. Iona received dozens of phone calls this year from fans unable to purchase tickets online because Vendini changed something which made the platform blocked by several servers being used by fans.

Based on 48 answers
The support was exceptional, and they remained an arm's reach away for when we ran into any questions after we began using the tool. Overall, we experienced phenomenal customer service. We also had more than one web-based call where their team would walk us through examples and answer any questions we had.

Alternatives Considered

Cvent Event Diagramming (Formerly Social Tables)

Cvent Social Tables is easier to use and has second to none customer service. Overall, we found that social tables provides a more lifelike, realistic depiction of the space, which is key when organizing massive show floors. It is also easier to show why certain booths are priced higher/lower than others due to where they are in the space.

Vendini

I've used ProVenue in the professional sports world (working with the NY Mets). ProVenue has drastically more capabilities and is a much more powerful system than Vendini, but such capabilities would not be necessary for smaller arenas or productions

Return on Investment

Cvent Event Diagramming (Formerly Social Tables)

  • This program allows us to be nimble in our communication with our vendors and clients.
  • This program has empowered my new staff members to solve problems discreetly and on their own, prior to bringing them to my attention. It is a key tool to our success.

Vendini

  • Allowed Iona to compare YOY sales and attendance figures. Something we were not able to do before.
  • We have been able to create events from remote locations (i.e. conference tournament bus trip ticket sales). The ability to just set up an event from wherever one can access the internet is very convenient and has increased our ticket sales for certain events.
  • The Vendini reporting has increased the efficiency of internal and external audits when it comes to ticket sales and revenue.
