March 31, 2011 – NEW YORK and MCLEAN, VA – Cvent, the world's largest provider of web survey, online event management, and meeting site selection solutions, will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) on Friday, April 1, to celebrate the company's newly expanded headquarters in McLean, Va. Cvent plans to hire 190 new employees this year, of which 100 will be based in McLean. The new 24,300 square-foot office space will accommodate these new hires, and adds to the 30,000 square-feet the company occupies throughout the building. Cvent employs more than 800 people worldwide.
"I am thrilled that Cvent is expanding and adding new office space and workers in McLean," said Sen. Warner.

Businesses like Cvent continue to prove that Virginia is a business-friendly state and a world-class technology hub."
