We have answers to your most commonly asked Plannie questions.

The Plannie Awards celebrate meetings and events success and the planners who produce them! We honor Cvent customers in nine different categories to showcase innovation in transforming their meetings and events.

Any Cvent customer that has demonstrated measurable results from their meetings and events activities may submit for a Plannie Award. However, each category has different submission criteria. Make sure to review the categories and their criteria prior to submitting.
