Tysons Corner, Va. and Las Vegas – Cvent, Inc. (NYSE: CVT), a leading cloud-based enterprise event management platform, today announced the upcoming launch of its Abstract Management product. This new offering can be leveraged as either an integrated component of the Cvent Event Cloud or as a stand-alone product for conference organizers looking to manage the content collection and review process when issuing a "call for proposals." Interested speakers and presenters can submit ideas for consideration, which help event planners aggregate content to build out an agenda or sessions. This release will not only streamline the end-to-end process, but also automate and integrate with Cvent's existing event management platform.

"This product release is an exciting expansion of solutions we can offer to the meetings and event industry and was based on direct feedback we've received from our customers on having the ability to streamline workflows," said Brian Ludwig, senior vice president of sales. "Our goal is to help them collect, organize and manage these submissions in a more efficient way by leveraging existing frameworks we have in place for a seamless process."

Key features of the Abstract Management product include the ability to:

  • Customize workflows for a more streamlined submission and review processes
