Cvent is proud to partner with hotels and destinations to help them drive profitable group and corporate travel business. Like any good partner, we know that listening to our customers is essential to delivering for them.

That is what the Cvent Hospitality Customer Advisory Board (HCAB) is all about. At Cvent CONNECT in July 2019, we welcomed 12 executives to our HCAB meeting to discuss the direction of the hospitality industry and how Cvent can contribute further to our customers’ success.

The discussion was a great opportunity for Cvent executives to hear HCAB members’ insights and recommendations for improvements in our company’s products and our approach to the hospitality industry.

“The quality and diversity of perspectives around the Customer Advisory Board table is so impressive,” says Chris McAndrews, Vice President of Marketing for the Cvent Hospitality Cloud. “We appreciate the commitment the board members have made to working with us to inform how Cvent can help all our customers tackle key challenges and opportunities in their group and corporate travel businesses.”
