A complete platform for all event management needs

Venue Sourcing Platform Overview

Most planners have two concerns when it comes to choosing the right venue for an event: Lack of visibility into whether they're getting the most competitive rates & no control over how much time is spent manually securing the right venue with traditional sourcing methods.

The Cvent Supplier Network connects meeting and event planners to 245,000+ venues worldwide and allows them to send one eRFP to multiple properties at once. This simplifies the process and helps them gain visibility into their meeting and event spend in order to negotiate the most competitive rates.
