Cvent’s Event Management Platform Enables Customers to Manage the Entire Event Lifecycle
Platform enhancements make events of all sizes and complexity easier to execute and more impactful

Cvent (, a leading event management technology company, has announced that it has further extended its event management platform to help event professionals, marketers, and executives deliver exceptional events. The added capabilities will help customers to increase event attendance, deliver engaging experiences, and gain data-driven insights in order to understand the impact of their events, from costs to improving ROI.

Cvent’s comprehensive event management platform enables organisations of all sizes to execute from the simplest to the most complex events. “Over the past few years, we have made tremendous strides towards expanding our product portfolio through two strategic acquisitions and by accelerating our internal development,” comments David Chalmers, Marketing Director, Cvent Europe.

“We’ve invested heavily to extend our event management platform and are now providing our customers with day-of-the event solutions such as OnArrival and LeadCapture, which have been well received by customers because of their ease of use, ability to reduce registration wait times and more easily capture attendee information on site. Combined with the introduction of our new Abstract Management and Appointments solutions, we are extending the reach of the Cvent platform to more areas of the event planning lifecycle and across more types of events than ever before.”

Cvent’s ultimate goal is to provide planners and marketers with the technology to focus on what they do best. By automating and simplifying time-consuming tasks, Cvent’s event management platform allows customers to concentrate more on engaging with their attendees and maximising the opportunity that face-to-face interaction provides.  Cvent has introduced a number of solutions that have increased functionality to its event management platform for before, during, and after events.

These additional solutions for before the event help event organisers promote and plan their events:

Abstract Management: Allows event organisers to source great content with an efficient call-for-papers process.  This solution enables planners to easily manage the complete process, from collecting submissions and judging, to automatically publishing final selections into an agenda and registration form.

Appointments Solution:  Ensures event attendees get the most out of their meetings and make the right connections at conferences and events.  Appointments facilitate the process of scheduling meetings amongst your attendees or with exhibitors, and enables the engagement and networking that attendees are looking for.

Cvent Express:  Provides event planners with a streamlined event set-up process to build and launch less complex events in minutes. New express ticketing and one-click registration forms make attendee registration effortless.

For the event organising activities that occur during the event, Cvent has introduced these solutions to assist in managing and engaging attendees:

Event-in-a Box: Provides event planners all the hardware and supplies they need to set up and run the registration desk at an event.  Planners can easily use the system to check in attendees quickly and print name badges on-demand.

OnArrival:  Enables event planners to make a strong first impression with attendees onsite through an efficient check-in and registration app that can print badges on-demand, securely collect payments and provide real-time reporting.

LeadCapture: Allows exhibitors to manage their lead retrieval and measure the impact of their participation at many conferences and tradeshows. Custom qualification surveys, scanning, and real-time access to lead data fuel a powerful solution that allows exhibitors to connect with prospective buyers and track interactions.

CrowdCompass by Cvent: Delivers a smarter event experience through attendees’ mobile devices that increases engagement and provides a strong return on investment.  These mobile event apps integrate seamlessly into Cvent’s event management platform and include features such as personalised schedules, gamification, social media integration, and in-app polling that transform events into experiences.

Cvent has also created this post-event solution to aide in the process of evaluating the impact of events:

Inquisium: Provides survey programs that produce reliable insights for smart decision making.  This feedback management platform allows event organisers to truly understand the view of attendees after the event has concluded, providing event insights and a closed-loop functionality for follow-up tasks.

Cvent has solidified its ability to serve meetings and events of all sizes or complexities.  Collectively, these product line additions have extended the platform’s ability to help customers navigate through the entire event lifecycle.  To learn more about Cvent’s Event Management Platform please visit

“Back to School” Time– IMEX America Education Program is Now Online
Attendees Customize From 10 Speciality Learning Tracks; New Play Space On Smart Monday
Will Feature Cool “Quirkshops”

Though summer break is still in play, the minds of IMEX organizers and partners are already on getting schooled with education at IMEX America 2015.

News Release
August 2015
-The full learning program for the event– starting with Smart Monday powered by MPI and Association Day on October 12th and running straight through to the show ending October 15th– is now live on the IMEX America website and is free of charge to all buyers, attendees and exhibitors.

With this online catalog of learning opportunities at their fingertips, attendees can research upwards of 180 options with just a few clicks and create their own custom learning program based on their unique needs, interests and IMEX schedules. Over 75 percent of the education is estimated to qualify for CMP/ CEU certification points. Searches can be done under 10 speciality tracks including Business Skills, Creative Learning, Diversity, General Education, Health/Wellbeing, Marketing and Communications, Research/Trends, Risk Management/Compliance, Sustainability, and Technology/Social Media.

Education Built for Impact
All of the education on the show floor will this year be located at the Inspiration Hub, but recognizing that we all learn in different ways, the space features five distinct learning formats and set-ups. There are seminar rooms, a campfire area and a Hot Topic area providing the opportunity to debate the latest industry issues with peers. The Meet the Experts Clinic offers individual appointments with an industry expert, and presentations at the Research Pod area showcase the latest industry data.

Though education sessions are open to all, two new ways to filter session searches — Young Professionals sponsored by IAEE and Senior Professionals sponsored by SPIN — have also been created based on number of years in the industry to help attendees pinpoint ideal classes.

Those with three years or less in the business might like sessions such as “Six Proven Strategies for High Performing Young Professionals,” delivered by meeting industry pioneers, Susan Sarfati and Liz Jackson of High Performance Strategies.

Meeting professionals with more than eight years in the industry may want to join in a discussion such as “Prove it or Lose it: ROI metrics that matter most to the C-Suite,” led by Dane Risley, Senior VP of Enterprise Event Marketing Sales at Cvent.

Knowing that keeping up with the lightning pace of technology can be challenging, many “wired” sessions will be offered in Vegas from “Beyond the #hashtag” given by Josh Murray of Extraordinary Events and “Welcome to 2016: Tech you’ve never seen” delivered by Courtney Stanley, marketing & industry relations strategist for EventMobi, to a discussion dubbed “Insights from the C-Suite: How to have ‘the talk’ about going digital,” led by Deborah Sexton, PCMA President & CEO and Carolyn Clarke, leader of Virtual Edge Institute (VEI.)

Data fans will want to visit the Research Pod for topics such as “The Global Exhibition Industry: Trends Worth Watching,” with David Dubois, President & CEO of IAEE.

Smart Monday Play Room Features Quirkshops
As past IMEX education has explored, the power of creativity and professional play can add a lot of “love” to business results.

To further punctuate the theme this year, IMEX America will feature ‘The Play Room’ – sponsored by Play with a Purpose – which will run throughout Smart Monday and offer short ‘quirkshops’. This upbeat, fun alternative to classroom learning lets attendees get hands-on experience with a variety of tools, techniques and resources to create more engaging meetings in the areas of room design, tech, networking, teambuilding, F&B and more. The overall goal of the Play Room is to offer tangible, immediately applicable ideas that planners can build into their upcoming meetings.

“We think this year’s line-up of education at IMEX America has something for everyone –from newcomers to industry veterans, from the very analytical to the highly creative, from hosted buyers and exhibitors to students and international participants,” said Carina Bauer, CEO of the IMEX Group. “Our goal is always to ensure that the education sessions are insightful and practical, with the end result being that learnings can be brought back to the office and put right to work with teammates and clients alike.”

Keynotes Start Day Off Right
Daily MPI keynotes will lend an intelligent and energizing note to each day of the show.

Smart Monday powered by MPI is headlined by wellness expert Lee Papa discussing “How to Live and Lead Mindfully,” followed on Tuesday by Tim David, author, speaker and former magician touching on “Human Connection: A Lost Art in a Noisy World.”

Wednesday’s program will begin with a keynote from film director Josh Tickell taking the audience through “Managing and Marketing to the Future Generation Y,” and on the final day of the show Patrick Henry, former songwriter and author of “The Pancake Principle: Seventeen Sticky Ways To Make Your Customers FLIP For You,” will teach skills around “Becoming Remember-able.”

Finally, allowing more opportunity for hosted buyers to take advantage of the rich education program – as well as book other appointments and explore the show floor – doors will open this year at 9:45am, with no group appointments held before 11am or after 4pm.
