Cvent CEO Reggie Aggarwal Named One of the 25 Most Influential People in the Meetings Industry
NEW YORK and MCLEAN, VA – Cvent, the world's largest cloud-based provider of event management, venue selection, and web survey solutions, today announced that its founder and CEO, Reggie Aggarwal, was named one of the 25 most influential people in the meetings industry by Successful Meetings magazine. This is Aggarwal's second appearance on the list, which was previously published by MeetingNews, the sister publication of Successful Meetings magazine.
The editorial staff of Successful Meetings magazine and MeetingNews selected the 25 influencers after reviewing highlights from the meetings industry in 2011, and based on who they believe to have accomplished initiatives that would have a lasting impact on the meetings industry. Aggarwal was the first influencer to be announced in the 2011 list. In previous years, the list has featured several notable figures, including the CEOs of Marriott, Maritz, Expedia, Priceline and United Airlines.
Aggarwal was first recognized on the list in 2001, when Cvent was just a 25-person start-up offering one product. Today, the global meetings management technology company has four product lines, more than 900 employees and 150,000 users in 100 countries. Aggarwal has successfully navigated Cvent through two recessions and, most recently, led the company through a $136 million investment, which is the largest investment in the history of the meetings and events technology industry.
The magazine is highlighting one member from the list each week, with a full list being distributed in July. More information can be found here.
