The Cvent Event Management tool is being used across the whole organization to help set up virtual and in-person events with employees and clients all over the world. It's a powerful tool to maintain a clear record of who has registered for an event and who hasn't, allowing us to get clear reports for marketing use. So far, the only issues we are having are because our account is so big and we handle so many events at the same time (50+ per month), creating hundred of reports every months and importing as many contact groups (with thousands of contacts), documents and images, that it's looking a bit cluttered on the backend. Reports can be mass deleted, but documents, images and contact groups must be deleted one by one. Contacts, on the other hand, cannot be removed, even if they are no longer valid, so we need to merge the outdated contacts with each other to "delete" them
  • Send invitation to huge amounts of people
  • Making reports for easy access to the data
  • Allow integration with virtual platforms such as On24, Zoom and MS Teams
  • Session emails can't have multiple customized headers and footers
  • Widgets can't be easily duplicated across several emails
  • Some functions enabled for website design are not enabled for email design
  • Virtual session links cannot be imported
Cvent [Event Management] will be perfect for complex events where you have multiple sessions taking place across several days, as it will help you keep track of which session has each invitee selected. However, if you're planning on having a more informal type of event and just setting up appointments, or tentative answers, then you might have some difficulties and will need to use a few workarounds.

It is used by the whole company of the client I support. It allows for specific branding guidelines to be followed so that a consistent message is always being delivered to their clients and partners.

Cvent Flex registration tool allows for an easy and user-friendly way to get out the event or conference details to the targeted market, easy to use registration process and a quick and concise confirmation in their email inbox. Prior to the event, it allows to relay all final details, be it URLs for webcasts or hotel confirmations for onsite conferences. For onsite check-in, OnArrival speeds up the line, allows for any messages to be relayed and gives a great end-result participant report.
  • Set and maintain branding needs
  • Provides amazing end-user reporting
  • Provides an always ready, 24-hour hands on customer service help desk
  • Allowing more in depth paths for registration questions (i.e. drill-down questions as needed)
  • Hotel widget does not model in a user-friendly way, allowing for customer confusion and cumbersome work-arounds
  • Flex Email customization widgets need to integrate into the emails more smoothly and be able to customize to have the same look, feel, font of the written text. At this time it does not allow for the same level of customization.
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)

We use Cvent for multiple events that are held in person and virtual in our company for members and nonmembers in education. We have customized Cvent in a way that we can make it easier for our customers to register by adding drop-down lists in the registration process to make sure they are directed to the right path to give them the discounts that they should be receiving.
  • Tracks number of people attending
  • Tracks people that have left registrations
  • payment
  • allow more that on person to register
  • easier to set up
We have been able to utilize Cvent to customize some of our lists and fields to better serve the needs of our customers to make the registration process smooth on their end. Cvent also has been helpful in providing specific customization in discounts that we sometimes off our customers.

Cvent [Event Management] is very robust, but the most beneficial item from the platform would be the ease of cross-event surveys and the ability to send those to a shared portal our entire company has access into. I save hours per year by not needing to pull reports daily for staff members.

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.

Cvent [Event Management] can be customized to solve a multitude of problems. In my personal role, I use Cvent [Event Management] to solve the problems that come with registration: "Who has registered? What are their registration details? What information do I need?" I can set up a registration page, capture all the data needed, and then push a report to a shared portal so I do not have to answer my team each time they have a question… I can direct them to the reporting portal and they can be autonomous.

  • Email Tracking: You can see if your event invitees have opened the invitation email, registered, declined, or even what step in the registration process they made it to.
  • Automated Emails: You can send emails manually or schedule emails to specific invitees, registrants, or no-shows.
  • Reporting: I can create a customized report, manipulate it when needed, and event send it to a shared portal so my co-workers can login and view a report in real time without emailing me requesting a specific report.
  • 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?
[Cvent Event Management is] well suited [for] event registration, event registrant tracking, automated emails, reference IDs, and reporting.

Less suited: Metric tracking- while you can use reference IDs you cannot adequately use UTMs with your events so it is difficult to see a campaign across the board if an event is a part of it.

Our association uses Cvent to manage our membership database, e-mail marketing, and annual conference. Our conference boasts 400+ sessions, 100+ speakers, 200 exhibitors, and 6,500+ attendees. We use Cvent to market the conference to some 20,000+ potential attendees; manage registrations for exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees; event surveys and reporting; event mobile app; and more.
  • Complex event registrations with multiple attendee types
  • Widget-based event website and email builder makes marketing quick and easy, especially for users without HTML/CSS knowledge; HTML widget allows for customization for those who want to fine-tune
  • Plenty of custom fields allowed in contact records
  • Clean interface
  • Email automation and filtering capabilities
  • Event registration links to contact record
  • Robust reporting, both standard and custom
  • Responsive and helpful customer service/tech support available via chat
  • New product releases are slow and staggered, requiring customers to find workarounds for previous features (increased manual labor)
  • No ability to modify event website CSS in newest event management platform (Flex)
  • No integration with membership module in newest event management platform (Flex)
  • Limited email marketing capabilities (e.g., no A/B testing)
  • Limited customization of memberships (only allows calendar-based or a specific number of days)
  • Exhibitor, sponsor and speaker management is clunky, and customization options are minimal
  • No ability to restore deleted contact records
  • With its focus primarily on event management, Cvent has not updated other modules in years (e-marketing and membership in particular), making them dated and clunky
  • Doesn't allow organization members to register for their own events after launch without paying a per-registrant fee
Complex events. Cvent is great for complex events with many sessions, registrants, speakers, exhibitors, and/or registration paths. There are many ways to customize, market, automate, and plan your event. The new release is, overall, easy to use and makes setting up an event simpler. We are, however, still waiting for several features we've used in the past to be re-integrated. Attendees have generally found it easy to use/navigate, though the inability to multi-select sessions during registration (rather than one at a time) is a huge frustration for our registrants.

Contact management & membership. Cvent allows you to manage thousands of contacts. You can create different membership levels, set up dues rates, create automatic email notifications/reminders, create unlimited custom fields, and set up password-protected websites. Customization in the membership module is limited, however. For example, there are only a couple of options for membership duration (calendar year or number of days), and you can only apply a grace period of up to 60 days.

We use Cvent for our conference/tradeshow. We are a very small organization with only one person organizing the event. Cvent Event Management makes it easier to coordinate everything in a timely fashion. The ease of getting the analytics and reports helps us make good decisions every week. I highly recommend Cvent Event Management.
  • Reports
  • Payment/Refunds
  • Website build
  • Easy to understand the language when building the website
  • User end search capabilities should include presenters
  • Building reports is time-consuming because it is not a step-by-step approach.
Let Cvent build your website if you don't have someone to do it. This gives you time to attend training and learn how the platform works without the pressure of having to build it at the same time. Understand how Speaker Resource Room, Exhibitor Registration, and Session Scheduling works to get the most out of the platform.

Our organization uses Cvent Event Management to manage webinars, live streams, and conferences. It is mainly run by our marketing department for conferences and admin things but used by our sales team to do their webinars and market to their user base. For us, this addresses a lot of business problems of management. The system allows us to keep everything in one forum and as one base for everyone to jump off of.
  • Event Management
  • Customer Relationship Building
  • Ease of Use
  • CRM Monitoring
  • Hotel Sourcing
  • Better clarification on product updates
If you are doing any kind of conference planning from pre-planning to full conference management, execution, and post-conference wrap, Cvent is the best platform out in the market for this. I have yet to see another platform that can even come close. If you are doing any conference with 50 people or more, this makes your life so much easier.

Cvent is used by our marketing department, as well as key staff on our sales team. This event management system allows us to manage the full lifecycle of our events and integrate the data with our Salesforce CRM. Cvent's nimble platform allowed us to quickly pivot from in-person to virtual events in early 2020, and execute triple the amount of events as usual, and also integrate Zoom into the platform. In fact, we were Cvent's first native Zoom integration client.
  • Event landing pages are fully customizeable with your company branding, and the latest version of the landing page creation tool, "Flex", is a true WYSIWYG tool, requiring no HTML coding knowledge.
  • There is a robust survey tool add-on, Inquisium, which allows you to survey your attendees, and even sync their responses to your CRM.
  • Contacts/invitees functionality is very robust. You can easily track who you've sent event invitations to, whether they've opened the invite, registered, declined, etc. And you can sync this data to Salesforce Contacts and Salesforce Campaigns to make it easy for your sales team to see who has registered (without having to constantly ask you!).
  • There's a robust venue sourcing and RFP tool integrated in the system!
  • Cvent can be integrated with Zoom for a seamless experience for webinar attendees.
  • So many modules or functions are "add-ons".
  • Subscription prices have creeped up over time.
  • Per person registration can be very expensive over time.
  • They need to do a better job of allowing clients to report on ANY data points.
Cvent Event Management is truly the leader in this space. If cost is not an issue, this is hands-down the #1 choice. However, with their model of charging extra for so many modules or features, I've lost a little faith in this as our long-term solution. Time will tell, but we'll really be taking a hard look when our contract comes up for renewal. If you are managing multiple events or meetings; or managing one large event or meeting, this will truly make your life easier, keep you very organized, and give visibility to others on your team... as well as make reporting to your execs much easier.

Within our department, it is used heavily as a communication and registration tool in event management. We use it for sending advertising emails and building registration and information websites for events with over 4,000 attendees from around the world. We use it for check in at events, to collect fees, and for data and statistic management after the events.
  • Provide design options
  • Easy-to-learn system
  • Sata and analysis
  • Managing all parts of an event in one system
  • Some products have too many features
  • Help articles are sometimes outdated
  • Phone app is outdated
Cvent Event Management is great for coordinating communication and registration associated with large events. You can send a variety of communications automatically with a range of triggers (at specific dates/times, whenever someone leaves a certain page, whenever someone registers, etc.) and because you can build using data tags, you can easily customize those communications for each recipient. It also allows for complex registration and payment processes with lots of design and function options. This is ideal for multi-day events, conferences, reunions, and workshops with a lot of people. It collects and easily displays tons of analytic details and makes them easy to review. For very small or simple events it is perhaps not worth the effort, but to manage the details of large and complex events it works wonderfully.

We use it for event management, registration, surveys, mobile app, and emarketing and publications for our company.
  • Registration is very easy with the drag and drop features in flex
  • New Surveys are so much easier than the older version. Drap and drop features here as well.
  • Socail tables, now diagramming and seating is seamless
  • Commiunity information should be available under the new look/experience of Cvent.
  • The administration courses should be broken down to simplify learning.
  • QR codes should be implemented in the new surveys.
Registrations with multiple attendee paths, your complex events are easy to handle in Cvent. Utilizing the mobile app along with registration becomes a little more diffeicult and why do new features costing so much?
very helpful when we get stuck or if we dont understand.

We are using [Cvent Event Management] for our Conference and Expo registration. This includes speakers and training sessions.

Hello! I use Cvent on a daily basis for all of our programs. Aside from a few changes, Cvent has been great. With the changes, of course, have come many questions and when I get stuck, I call customer support and they are always more than willing to help solve my problem! I think that Cvent is very user-friendly. It definitely takes some time to learn all the ins and outs because there is so much to learn and many cool features!
  • Custom Reporting.
  • Emails that we can send to clients are amazing!
  • The websites we are able to build are great especially with the custom features.
  • The publishing of reports, parking reports was so much easier.
  • The speed I feel has slowed down with all the changes.
  • The hotel module more flexibility.
I think it is suited for less complex and more complex programs. It all depends on what the client wants, but to this day we have not had major issues even with our most complex clients.

We use Cvent Event Management as our total solution. From pre-event registration, sending attendee emails, to onsite check-in/badge printing, lead scanners and using the Attendee Hub for virtual and hybrid events. We also use the Cvent mobile apps, abstract and speaker management and integrate Cvent with Salesforce for easy reporting.
  • Centralized reporting data base
  • Easy to share reports and data with stakeholders
  • Makes checking in attendees seamless
  • Still needs some improvement in the website builder
  • Waiting for more features to roll out with Attendee Hub
  • More updates to appointments
This is a great tool when you need to manage lots of different registrations and have the ability to customize information for different types of attendees such as available sessions or custom emails. I love using registration types and paths for this. We do not use Cvent for some of our smaller internal events where registration is not needed due to the fact that there is a cost per registration.

[Cvent Event Management] can be used org-wide, however usage is limited due to current support model internally. It is centrally managed but requires thorough onboarding and training which can be a significant barrier to wider adoption. We use their online registration and their virtual event platform. Online registration is nice but it is somewhat limited and some areas of the platform have been in need of improvement for a long time now. Simple things that could really help are not being addressed.
  • Integrations
  • Electronic check-in
  • Name bade printing
  • Virtual event platform
  • Interactive engagement
  • Customizations and templates
[Cvent Event Management is well suited for] larger orgs with dedicated staff to manage, implement and support the tool. It can be used by occasional users but its such a high bar to have a successful event if you are rarely in the tool. Having a dedicated team or person is the key to a successful program.

A few departments across our organization use Cvent Event Management to help organize and run our in-person events smoothly. It helps us break down silos, more uniformly and effectively execute high-quality events, and put together more seamless end of event reports. It also allows us to put together event branding/marketing materials without overburdening our already very busy creative and design team.
  • Very user friendly.
  • Solves a lot of business problems.
  • Great customer service.
  • More customization.
  • Cleaner looking app.
  • More training tools.
Cvent Event Management is very well suited for organizations that put together multiple events across multiple departments/stakeholders. It is less appropriate for organizations that only put one 1 event a year, or are very small and agile on their own. If you need to create a great event quickly, Cvent is a one-stop shop!

[Cvent Event Management] is one of the tools we have used to bring large groups together. Especially in these trying times of the Pandemic[.] Town halls have been held through the platform and we've been pretty pleased with the outcome for the most part. It's being used alongside other solutions across the board.
  • Attendee Management
  • Virtual Meetings
  • Real time feedback and solutions
  • Lag in changing between screens on some applications
Cvent Event Management is well suited for larger audiences and meetings or events that require end to end attendee management and travel Itinerary planning. Where it is less appropriate is daily meetings or discussions that [don't] require a tool which is at this price point. Maybe in future it could integrate with other tools.

Cvent is a very robust platform! We manage well over 50 - small and large - events per year so an event management tool like Cvent is vital for our company. Creating a streamlined process and easy to navigate is key. This platform has helped us create, produce and organize our events seamlessly. Managing various meetings and events, we have built simple to complex registrations, particularly customizing registration types and paths. We have explored and used many Cvent event management products from payment administration, integration, appointments, and mobile app tools. We also use reporting and inquiries for metrics.
  • Using data tags in email communications.
  • Well integrated.
  • Great customer service.
  • Continuous product improvements.
  • Easy to navigate and user-friendly.
  • Ability to customize.
  • I would like to have the ability to duplicate/copy content in survey emails.
  • The reporting feature is a wonderful tool, however, some selected fields lack customization.
  • The ability to send test email surveys after the survey has launched live (this feature is only available in the legacy survey).
This is an event planner's dream come true! It is truly your one-stop-shop event management platform tool. It is a user-friendly software, allowing planners to build and manage registrations, send emails, manage surveys, and run reports. Best of all, to feel at ease knowing that you are providing a positive and seamless registration experience. Cvent has made and has continued to make enhancements in the ever-changing events industry. They are innovative and welcome customer feedback for product improvements. Their customer service is well-knowledge and has been extremely helpful whenever I ran into issues.

Currently, my marketing team and I use Cvent Event Management to keep track of all attendees coming to our events. We share the registration link to invited guests, they sign up and fill in all information we need on our end, and then it is easily organized in Cvent! Super easy to make an event website and it tracks all data so you can make/see all types of reports. Cvent solves the problem of disorganization with attendees and creating events in general, and there are still so many other features I have yet to discover!
  • Organization of registrations and attendees.
  • Data collection and options for building reports.
  • Ease of creating event websites.
  • The event refund process should be smoother and auto return $ to the people who signed up. We had to cut personal checks for each individual that paid for an event that was then canceled due to covid.
  • The option to build a completely custom report, including the answer to your specific questions upon registration.
  • When designing our websites, sometimes the format is a tad off when making a schedule, so maybe some more detailed and aligned formatting options or templates for common event website pages?
Cvent is great for: Keeping track of attendees and registrants for upcoming events, building many reports and collecting data, creating event website,s and sharing easy links Still could be improved: The entire refunding process. I know Cvent has to make money too, but we had several issues (a lot to do with communication, as every Cvent person we talked too, had a different response on how to successfully refund the event admissions) and it was ultimately a long process to complete the refund.

Used to support large customer-facing virtual, hybrid, & in-person events. Enables teams to track registration and attendee data to measure event participation, enable post-event customer follow-up, and track new leads. Cvent also enables teams to transition away from manual event data tracking to more streamlined, consolidated, & automated solution.
  • Event Registration & Attendee Data.
  • Event Hosting (Attendee Hub).
  • Post-Event Content Access for Registrants.
  • Integrated chat feature in Cvent Attendee Hub.
  • Streamlined Admission Item-level data for Cvent/Marketo integrations.
  • Cvent Attendee Hub is a great option for large, multi-time zone virtual events.
