  • This solution helps our event manager work smarter, not harder, and optimize her time.
  • This solution really is a full lifecycle, out-of-the-box solution that is an extremely valuable planning and logistics tool.
  • Can you tie actual ROI to it? Probably not. But you can make the case that it allows your sales team to have better actionable data, thereby resulting in future inked deals and therefore, ROI.

  • I can now track my hotel room nights at each property for each event. This gives me more leverage with hotels in the negotiation process.
  • I can easily track registration income and discount and show my executive team how much we're really making (or not) making!
  • With the various integrations, I can easily import/export data at the click of a button.

  • The cost is high, which has impacted our ROI negatively
  • The ease of use has made it easier for me to accomplish what I need to in a shorter period of time, increasing my ROI
  • The newer Cvent features have made it easier on my registrants to navigate the site and see all of their information in a user friendly format, which will likely help ROI

  • Negative: Cost - we've found the cost to not be 100% worth our ROI.
  • Positive: Ease of Use - we've found the software very easy to use.
  • Mixed: Reports - the reports are not always intuitive. You can create your own, but I had to reach out to support for assistance to get what I needed.
