Cvent for Event Management and Attendee Experience

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: Overall, our company and attendees have adopted Cvent and find it easy to register, set schedules, and utilize the app. We highly recommend Cvent when checking out the event management software in the market. Cvent has so many features to make your events stand out, and make your life easier when planning, executing, and marketing your events.

Pros:

Cvent makes it very easy to set up and deploy registration websites, manage hotel bookings, flights, and overall user experience. We have been using Cvent for over 5 years and there are always new developments and upgrades being added. There's a huge community of users who also help each other and submit request for new ideas. Cvent is always listening to us and adding new features that enhance our events.

Cons:

In the beginning it was a little tricky setting up events. After using it for a few events though, it is now much easier to set up.

Alternatives Considered: EventCreate , Webex Suite and Eventbrite

Reasons for Switching to Cvent Event Management: Ease of use is a big consideration for our marketing team. We also want features and easy registration processes.

Cvent has been a game changer!

5.0 3 months ago

Pros:

When we set out to find a new event management tool, we met with several vendors. None could meet our needs. Then we found Cvent. Cvent checked all our boxes and more! The sales staff was extremely helpful and bent over backwards to help us test our specific use cases. They were a wealth of knowledge and gave us confidence in the product. We've now been using Cvent for over a year and we couldn't be happier. It's streamlined our processes, improved the user experiences, and gives us all the reporting we need easily. There team was with us every step of the way during our integration phase and made it a breeze. I highly recommend this tool!

Cons:

Cvent was such a drastic improvement from our previous solutions, so it's hard to speak to anything negative! The tool does SO much so it can be daunting to learn everything and get your webpages looking nice. However our support teams have been a great resource. Cvent also has many help articles that are a great reference point.

Great result but incredibly time consuming

3.0 2 months ago

Comments: Difficult to understand packages. Onboarding often did not even know what was purchased. Poor responses from billing regarding getting payments made. Overall it is presented as a very user friendly and simple app and it is not seems designed to create an upsell to get things accomplished.

Pros:

The outcome was great and attendees loved it. The look was good and it captured the info we needed to capture.

Cons:

Incredibly time intensive Not as user friendly as expected Very poor descriptions of what is included and what is not for such high tech the payments and invoices were super difficult. They do not simply give you a link for payment. You must contact them and wait for delays to respond to get a payment link and you have to do the same for every payment. Help sessions were not as described during the sales. Bottom line is that it works well if you want to pay Cvent to do the entire set up. Otherwise be prepared to spend a great deal of time learning and setting up

Cvent Event Management is the best event management software!

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: Our experience with Cvent is among the best relationships I've ever had with a vendor. The customer service is exceptional. They anticipate our needs and have solutions read for us. We speak to our account manager quarterly and our customer support every other month.

Pros:

We use Cvent Event Management to manage our events and membership database. We use Cvent for event set-up, registration, speaker management, sponsor and exhibitor interaction, attendee engagement, and feedback afterward. Cvent has streamlined our processes, allowing a small staff to concentrate on other activities related to our conferences and providing a better experience for our attendees.

Cons:

The learning curve was steep. Once we were familiar with it, we could quickly set up events. The products that are still being updated, like Abstract Management, are not as user-friendly as the updated products.
