Overall Satisfaction with Cvent Event Management

I use Cvent for all internal and external events, including the supplier network. I'm the sole user of this software in my company. Cvent eliminates the needs for spreadsheets and manual data entry. Cvent also provides one central location for me to handle all registration, hotel requests and appointment scheduling. I don't know how we survived our events before Cvent!
  • Cvent provides one central location for all attendee requests/needs
  • Cvent's supplier network is unbridled in the industry. It's a complex tool that allows you to drill down to what you're really looking for.
  • Cvent's integrations are comprehensive, including: Passkey, CrowdCompass, Inquisium and Salesforce.
  • Cvent's FLEX registration system is new as of 10/31/18 and there are still some kinks to work out. Cvent would like it to be it's primary registration tool as it's clean and provides lots of flexibility, but there are many features not available yet.
  • There are some inconsistencies in some of the layouts in Cvent-- not every screen looks the same.
  • Importing information within Cvent can be difficult, as they require very specific information/formats. If you don't get it right the first time, it can be cumbersome to figure out what is needed.
  • 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.
It's the largest tool out there with complex integrations. Seems like a natural fit.
Cvent Management can be an expensive tool, so I'd recommend anyone with 5+ complex meetings purchase it. Otherwise the free version should suffice.
