  • Introduced attendance tracking for virtual sessions: With virtual attendance tracking, you can customize how long attendees must watch a virtual session on the Attendee Website before they are marked as a participant.
  • Introduced attendee messaging for the Attendee Website: Attendees can now send direct messages to each another on the Attendee Website.
  • Updated the view after a session ends: When a session ends, attendees will see information about the next session or appointment on their schedule, if the next activity is starting within two hours.

  • Introduced live view count for the Attendee Website: You can enable live view count if you want attendees to be able to see the number of people viewing a live or simulive session on the Attendee Website.


  • Added an invalid mobile number format warning:  If you're collecting mobile numbers and are requiring a secure verification code for modifying registrations after registration, a warning will now display to any attendee who inputs an invalid number format. 
  • Hybrid Reporting Updates: The newly created fields for Hybrid Event are now available in the reporting framework, so that you can report on the virtual capacities, virtual registration types, hybrid flag and counts of virtual vs in-person attendees at event and product level. The fields will be available in both Event level and Cross Event reports. 


  • Simplified and Redesigned RFP Creation and Management Experience: If you are opted in to the new sourcing experience, you will see a completely redesigned Suppliers blade, beginning with a simplified and streamlined RFP and continuing through to a modernized Venue List and Award process. In addition, many of the Cvent notification emails have been redesigned and localized. Users who are opted in will be able to switch back to the old experience at any time. This is only the first phase of our multi-phased planner side redesign project.
