(NYSE: CVT), a leading cloud-based enterprise event management company, today announced that it expects to bring close to 3,000 attendees to Cvent CONNECT including clients, prospects, partners and employees. Cvent is quickly approaching close to 1,500 registrations for its 5th annual industry conference. Event and hospitality professionals will have the opportunity to learn about new technology solutions, discover best practices, and network with their peers, providing them the ability to maximize the ROI of their event spend. The five-day event will take place at The Venetian® and The Palazzo® Las Vegas from June 26-30. The first half of the conference, June 26-28, is for hospitality professionals. The conference’s second half, June 28-30, is devoted to event and meeting professionals.
“Last June, we created an avenue for the entire meetings and events ecosystem to gather and embrace a successful future for our industry,” said Chuck Ghoorah, co-founder and president of worldwide sales and marketing at Cvent. “This year will mark our fifth time hosting an industry conference, and with each passing year we have been able to set the bar even higher for ourselves – from our attendance rate of power users, to the thought-provoking educational sessions we offer. Our goal is to provide attendees the ultimate meeting experience and deliver highly impactful information that can be applied at their company and in their own careers to achieve all-around meeting success.”
In June 2015, more than 2,300 attendees experienced hundreds of educational sessions, five compelling keynotes, and countless unique networking opportunities. 95 percent of attendees from last year’s conference said they’d recommend the event and would return in the future. Cvent plans to bring back a number of successful activities for its attendees while also offering a handful of new additions, such as:
