Overall Satisfaction with Cvent

Cvent is not currently being used by the company I currently work for, but I used it in my previous class work at The George Washington University. Our class had Cvent representatives come in and talk about the benefits of using Cvent here in DC and I found that the information they gave was helpful and so I took the test to become Cvent certified. My certification in Cvent is beneficial because Cvent takes all of the hassle out of trying to plan an event. Whatever needs or special requests you have, you can enter it into the easy RFP Wizard and and it makes communicating with potential locations that much easier.
  • Creates organized, detailed, RFP's to help event managers create the event the client wants.
  • Has easy search ability to find the perfect place for your event, including special event venues, restaurants, and meeting destinations.
  • Allows for destinations and venues to create promotions to reach out to event planners.
  • Allows planners to submit requests for information regarding a supplier without having to submit an RFP.
  • I would like to see the website become a little more updated- the layout is clean and simple but it could be a little more user friendly.
  • Eliminates wasted time on formatting RFP's that venues or event planners will spend time trying to accommodate for.
  • Increases efficiency and planning because you set the intended needs right from the start.
  • Better communication amongst the venues and event planners.
I would renew my use of Cvent because it is a really valuable product to be able to utilize. When I go into the event management industry and a company wants me to create an event I would suggest using Cvent from the start. It just creates a better dialogue for planning events amongst all parties involved.
Cvent is best suited for creating events and dealing with venues and event managers. To be able to use the service you have to pass the test which is a reasonable request and as long as you watch the videos they provide you and read up on the product you will be able to navigate the product well.
