The Cvent Excellence Awards is coming up! We want you to have the opportunity to celebrate your achievements at the event. That is why the final deadline has been extended to May 8th!

What are the Cvent Excellence Awards?

Held annually at Cvent CONNECT, the Cvent Excellence Awards celebrate customers from across the globe who are driving innovation in the meetings and events industry. The 11th annual awards will recognize Cvent users from organizations of all sizes across industries for their ingenuity and dedication.

Our awards ceremony has always featured remarkable moments - last year even included artistic and musical performances from some of Las Vegas' brightest stars! This year’s award ceremony will feature more exclusive experiences that you don’t want to miss.

Already know about the Excellence Awards? View all categories and submit here.

What’s new for 2023?

We have new categories for event professionals and hospitality professionals to honor your achievements. Not able to make it to CONNECT in-person? No problem! Our global awards program will celebrate finalists both onsite and virtually in front of tens of thousands at Cvent CONNECT. 

What do finalists and winners receive?

All finalist organizations will receive two (2) free Cvent CONNECT registrations. Finalists receive a plaque of appreciation and winners receive a custom trophy during our fully-catered banquet. 2023 will also feature exclusive experiences and promotional opportunities for finalists and winners along with a celebratory show to remember!

How can you submit?

Submitting is easier than ever! Submit via our website and follow these simple steps:

  • Create a quick login (doesn’t need to be your Cvent credentials)
  • Choose the category or categories you'd like to apply to
  • Fill in a few questions and upload any desired media
  • Submit!

You can even save and return to your submission later. A Cvent account team member can submit on your behalf with permission. Again, you don't have to attend Cvent CONNECT to submit, though we’d love to see you there!
