CSN Overview

Cvent Hospitality Cloud is proud to announce the most significant update to the Cvent Supplier Network since it was introduced eight years ago. We have been diligently working on a complete rebuild of the network to simplify venue sourcing. Planners who are delighted by the group-specific hotel content and functionality will love the renewed focus on simplicity.

But we didn't do this just for planners - we've ensured these changes also benefit our venue partners. You'll soon see gorgeous new profiles with bigger images and more opportunities to market your venue. We are committed to helping you target more qualified business, and this redesign will help deliver on that goal.

Overall Benefits

New Planner Features that Benefit You Too

  • Simplified search

    Now planners can search based on neighborhoods, places of interest, zip codes, and more from a single search bar.

  • Map-based search

    Planners can now search geographically through the use of our new map search powered by Google.

  • Mobile enhanced

    The Cvent Supplier Network now works across all devices to keep pace with planners' mobile-friendly search needs.

  • Date handling for deeper searches

    Now planners can input event dates and attendee numbers into the search, enabling us to serve more specific hotel matches and relevant promotions.

  • Venue List functionality

    Now planners can use the Supplier Network like an e-commerce platform with a venue list that appears throughout their search, allowing us to provide planners with venue recommendations based on which venues they already have in their cart.

  • Quick view functionality

    For faster searches, planners now have the option to use Quick View on the search results, which gives them an overview of the hotel without clicking into a profile.

  • Promotions

    We are further integrating the Promotions Hub with targeted promotions to planners looking for event dates that match deals venues have available.
