Cvent Launches New Edition of the Cvent Destination Guide
Features Over 600 Enhanced Destination Profiles and Ability for Planners to Easily Search Destinations
February 1, 2012 – NEW YORK and MCLEAN, VA – Cvent, the world's largest cloud-based provider of event management, venue selection and web survey solutions, today announced major upgrades to the Cvent Destination Guide website that offer innovative new ways for planners to discover the best destination for their next event. The Cvent Destination Guide is a destination-specific, free online travel guide designed for meeting planners. The resource features 6,000 pages of in-depth research on more than 600 destinations worldwide.
"Cvent has been working closely with our destination partners to make the Cvent Destination Guide the premier resource for meeting and event planners who are researching locations for their next event," said Eric Eden, Cvent's Vice President of Marketing. "As we continue to develop the guide to cover over 1,000 destinations by the end of this year, the new features and content on our site will greatly benefit planners and our destination partners around the world."
Feature additions and enhancements to the Destination Guide include:
- New destination search: Planners can now research destinations by type, like beach, mountain and golf destinations; and then further narrow down their results by using meeting-specific search criteria, such as average hotel room rates, maximum exhibit space and average daily food costs for meeting attendees.
- An enhanced tie to the Cvent Supplier Network: The Cvent Destination Guide is now more tightly linked to the world's largest free online marketplace that connects event planners with hotels, convention and visitor bureaus (CVBs) and special event venues. This will provide meeting and event planners with the ability to seamlessly navigate between the two resources, and give suppliers additional opportunities to showcase their destinations to qualified meeting planners.
- An upgraded look and feel: The enhanced Cvent Destination Guide boasts a sleek, modernized interface with increased functionality to simplify and streamline the planning process for meeting planners, hoteliers and CVBs.
