“As the global pandemic took hold, virtual events were embraced as a way for organizations to continue to engage their prospects and customers even when they couldn’t meet in person, face to face,” said Cvent CMO Patrick Smith. “Many organizations quickly pivoted to create a virtual event strategy but had to patch together disparate technologies to run their events. This suboptimal approach meant low attendee engagement, an inferior user experience, and no way to measure the event’s true business impact.
“In our current environment, the need to reach and engage attendees virtually has never been more important – and we launched the Cvent Virtual Attendee HubTM to drive online interactions that were meaningful and measurable,” continued Smith. “Since March, we’ve helped our customers manage over 60,000 virtual events, giving us valuable insight into what a successful virtual experience looks like. Now, with Cvent Virtual Attendee HubTM, event planners, marketers, and organizations of all sizes will be able to easily design and deliver memorable, measurable virtual event experiences as key parts of their overall event program.”
The Cvent Virtual Attendee HubTM will power Cvent’s annual event technology conference, Cvent CONNECT, on August 25 and 26, which is set to be the largest gathering of meeting and event professionals in history. The virtual conference will provide attendees, many of whom who are looking for tools to run their own virtual events, with a front row seat to the Virtual Attendee HubTM experience. More than 23,000 event professionals, marketers, and hospitality professionals have already registered.
