ATTENDEE HUB

  • Now Incorporate theme colors into the Attendee Website login 
    The main and action colors you select while customizing your Attendee Hub theme will now be incorporated as the background and button colors for the Attendee Website login. This now matches the existing color scheme of the Event App login, allowing planners to extend their brand colors throughout more of the virtual experience without additional configuration and creates more consistency between the virtual/web experience and the Cvent Event App.
  • New Attendee Hub Session Filters
    Attendees can now easily narrow down the list of sessions using the new Session Time (Morning, Afternoon, Evening) and Session Category filters. These filters have been applied to the tab in which the attendee is browsing, and will persist as the attendee clicks through different event days or on the All Sessions tab.
  • See more Attendee Hub updates   

FLEX/STANDARD REGISTRATION 

  • Website Agenda – Agenda at a Glance Widget
    A new 'Agenda at a Glance' widget allows you to create a simple, high-level view of your agenda so your invitees can quickly understand the event and schedule. It is configurable to adapt to your needs.
