Overall Satisfaction with Cvent Event Management

Cvent is used by our organization to manage the complete online presence of every client-facing or public event we sponsor. We also use it for internal conferences as well. It provides us with an integrated suite of tools to manage everything from our websites and registration process, our venue RFP process and reporting dashboards for all stakeholders.
  • Cvent allows event budget tracking to be compared year over year, which is extremely helpful in forecasting.
  • The web tools, such as the website and registration pages are almost infinitely customizable, allowing us to manage the most complex, multifaceted programs with great ease.
  • The integrated suite of reporting tools makes rolling out real-time data to front line stakeholders very easy!
  • The new iteration of Cvent's registration design tool, called Flex has some very serious limitations when it comes to incorporating visual branding parameters for our company. We can no longer simply alter the code directly, but would have to approximate our brand colors, fonts and there's no way to drop in a custom background anymore either. This needs to change.
  • We don't really track ROI as a direct outcome of the kinds of events we host, however we've noticed a great upswing in positive responses from our event attendees regarding the ease of use during registration.
  • Using Cvent On Arrival to automate our event check-in process has allowed us to decrease event staffing costs while making the badging process much faster and smoother.
I was not involved in the selection process of either system at either company. However, I would definitely select Cvent for future use because it integrates so many tools in one place and can easily be hooked via API into most existing marketing stacks.
If you're managing a very small, ticketed event without lots of different registration or purchase options, you might be better off with something inexpensive and fairly simple like Eventbrite. However, I believe that Cvent is the very best tool for managing corporate events where your web presence must be flawlessly integrated with email outreach, budget detail and data analysis
