Got a spare 20 minutes or so?

We know that's a loaded question for meetings and events professionals. In fact, our mission at Cvent is to help you get those 15 minutes (and more) back in your day!

So, when we decided to launch our new podcast, How Great Events Happenthe plan was to keep these episodes brief, chock-full of relevant information, so that they are "snackable," shareable, and will contribute to the success of your events and career. Something you can listen to on your way to or from work, on the plane, or during a lunch break.

How great events happen: The basics

So, what's this new podcast about?

Boring is not an option, so we picked the most interesting thought leaders in the industry to keep it engaging. And our hosts Brooke Gracey and Cody Liskh, like to have fun. We know there are several events podcasts that delve into the minutiae of meetings and events so we wanted to focus on the big picture.

  • What are the latest industry trends?
  • What are people doing well?
  • What's the next "Big Thing" on the horizon?
  • How can you adapt to new industry rules and regulations?

We hope you can walk away from these podcast episodes with strategic and insightful ideas that you can implement into your own events — whatever they may be — big or small. With each episode, you will get access to additional content, tools, and resources to help you grow in your career.
