Cvent Event Management is especially helpful for complex events that have registration sessions, payment, accommodations, and speaker info. It may be less appropriate for very small personal events, in which a custom invite is most suited.

Cvent Event Management would honestly be great for all types of events. Even the small range of events need customization and security for data collection. I would say if custom coding is needed for specific events that may be a challenge or that may be out of my expertise for what the Cvent FLEX tool can do.

We used it for a hybrid event, which was PERFECT! It allowed attendees to stay informed, had virtual exhibitors to schedule zoom meetings, ability for surveys, attendees to connect with one another, keeps you organized! Allows you to track attendance, provides real-time event data and CUSTOM branding was key!!!

Cvent is used for our company's national sales meeting and provides tools to keep the meeting running smoothly especially registration. We have small training events at our home office which don't require the use of Cvent.

I've found great success in using Cvent Event Management to collect registration information for upcoming events and meetings. If you are collecting attendance for another larger event, it may cause confusion for the attendee to register in Cvent Event Management, and then (sometimes) they have to go and register in the overall event on their own. That can cause confusion.

Cvent Event Management is well suited as a place to keep all of your event needs in one place. However, some of these functions are not as user-friendly as others. Most recently we've been having issues with attendees using the app onsite. While it is a great concept we often have to ask them to delete and redownload because of issues with not finding the event, or not pulling up the schedule.

It worked very well for our small events. While I don't have experience using it in a larger capacity, having heard about all of its features I would think it would be a useful tool for conferences, tradeshows, etc. I have attended a conference where they used Cvent for registration and, from an attendee perspective, I had no issues.

Cvent Event Management is perfect for hybrid events abs virtual events! It makes the experience seamless for the virtual viewers. It makes them feel a part of the event! On the planner side, it keeps registrations organized and traceable. The metrics you get out of each event is also extremely helpful. Exhibitors virtual and in person also get great feedback and reports directly to high saves us a huge step.

Cvent's one stop shop provides everything you need for an event from inception. From site searches to post conference surveys, you can utilize it for all aspects of your event, whether onsite, virtual, or hybrid.

We have found that Cvent works very well in planning and executing workshops or conferences either in-person, virtually, or a hybrid of both. It makes creating a registration site and sessions very easy and the branding stays uniform. The drawback of Cvent is that it doesn't apply to smaller meetings and gatherings very well mostly due to the per registrant cost to the clients. Some of the University departments just do not have the budget to use Cvent for every single gathering or smaller event that they plan.

While I know I don't use Cvent Event Management to its full capability (yet), Cvent is perfect for creating a robust registration website and user experience. Being able to create scheduled email touchpoints from the point of registration to the event start date is fantastic!

Perfect for the meeting professional who manages multiple events or large scale events. It’s a one-stop shop to show case your events, provides a consistent customer experience, and allows for efficiencies within our strategic meeting management workflows. This is less suited for restaurant based functions as they are mostly not included in the Cvent Supplier Network, but you can still use the registration component for these simple meetings.

Any organization that hosts events and needs special details sent to their students and guests. Cvent Event Management is great to manage capacities and allows for in-person and virtual options. It is also helpful as it is integrated with a mobile app that allows our customers to easily access information and engage with our office and the larger university.

Cvent is extremely appropriate when one is looking to track attendees, communicate with attendees, and disseminate information to attendees. It is also great for getting feedback on events from your attendees and partners, including panelists, session speakers, and sponsors. It is great for featuring sponsors and speakers as a marketing tool to encourage others to register and attend the event.

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.

While the system still has space to grow, it is the best management and event registration system I have yet used for events from dozens to thousands of attendees. For building registration pathways, gathering attendee data, communicating with attendees (on and off-site), and managing surveys, Cvent is a great tool for organizations that regularly organize events, trainings, or conferences.

I think anyone managing and hosting events will benefit from using the event management platform. It is very to administer the back-end processes, checkin, monitor registrations, and so on. I think the one area in which you can benefit from a complimentary platform is e-mail management which can be better suited to conducting comprehensive campaigns.

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.

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.

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.
