The Value of RFP Showcase

The Cvent Supplier Network® hosts 291,000 venues. The possibilities are endless, right? There are so many venues that event planners need to cut down their options as quickly as possible, which usually means only looking at the first page of results. Even with a much smaller pool, they still need to decide which venues are a good fit for the event. And are they available?

That’s where RFP Showcase can help. Undecided planners can add their RFPs to the showcase, an open forum where qualified venues can bid on RFPs that match their open dates, metro area, and sleeping and meeting room capabilities. Planners will be able to see a variety of responses from venues they might not have considered in a traditional sourcing search, and venues will have the opportunity to see RFPs that might never have been sent directly to them.
