Overall Satisfaction with Cvent Event Management

Cvent Event Management is a vital part of our day-to-day functions as an event team. We use it to manage all of our event registrations. It allows us to streamline all of our registrations rather than doing so manually.
  • Collecting Data - it is an extremely robust system that has virtually no limitations on what type of data it can collect about your audience and registrants.
  • Custom Registration Builds - it offers a wide variety of options on how you can construct your registrations to communicate and collect the information you need.
  • Reports - being able to pull any ad hoc report allows you to aggregate data in a way that uncovers and highlights certain trends you may have been unaware of previously.
  • User Interface - while it is a very robust management system, it is not always the easiest to use. The learning curve can be quite dramatic as things are arranged in a necessarily intuitive way.
  • Speed of processing - many hours lost waiting for the online program to "process" once a single change is made
  • Live time edits would be great. No more having to click edit, then save, then preview to make sure your edit was done correctly.
  • Collecting data on which clients have been consistently attending our events. If there is a dip in attendance, we are able to proactively reach out to that client to get a pulse on their overall feelings towards us as company.
Some of the programs listed above accomplish different tasks and objectives, so comparing them directly to Cvent is a bit tricky. However, again, the robust nature of the Cvent program and event management software is what sets it apart. I also appreciate the fact that Cvent continues to make connections within the event industry that allows for different integrations of other programs.
Not well suited for the custom registration need. If you are looking for a more personalized, white-glove registration experience, you might run into many issues and roadblocks.

Well suited for registration builds for the masses. If you are looking to create a registration that is easy to navigate, user-friendly, streamlined and efficient, Cvent is a great option. It allows you to collect as little or as much information as your heart desires.
