Iconic comedian and host part of the five-day event in Las Vegas
TYSONS CORNER, Va. – May 3, 2017 – Cvent, Inc, the market leader in meetings, events and travel technology, today announced that Jay Leno, former host of "The Tonight Show" and host of "Jay Leno's Garage," will be the celebrity keynote at Cvent's customer conference, Cvent CONNECT 2017. The five-day event will take place at The Mandalay Bay Convention Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, from June 12-16. Leno will address the attendees on Wednesday, June 14.
"Cvent CONNECT is about bringing event and hospitality professionals together to learn about event technology, while at the same time enabling attendees to connect with industry peers and thought leaders," said Chuck Ghoorah, co-founder and president of worldwide sales and marketing at Cvent. "With millions of viewers nightly, few people can claim that they have connected with, and brought more people together, than Jay Leno. We are excited to hear his stories and wit, as well as share a laugh or two with our more than 3,000 attendees."
Jay Leno's late night television ratings domination included two decades as the host of the #1-rated "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," which never lost a ratings year while he served as host.
Currently, Leno produces and hosts the CNBC Television series, "Jay Leno's Garage," now in its third season. "Jay Leno's Garage" explores the world of cars, never forgetting that it's the people behind the wheel who provide the real stories. Debuted in October 2015, the series delivered the most-watched first season in CNBC's history. New episodes of "Jay Leno's Garage" air on CNBC throughout the year.
In addition to the celebrity keynote, event and hospitality professionals attending Cvent CONNECT will have the opportunity to participate in more than 100 breakout sessions focused on success at every stage of the event and meeting lifecycle. More than 60 Cvent customers will share their success stories.
