Can a third-party that I work with submit on my behalf?

Yes, if a third party would like to submit on behalf of the work done for your organization, they can do so with your express approval. This includes members of your Cvent account team. Should you win, we ask that you confirm recognition with your third-party colleague, who may accompany you onstage to accept the award.

Can I submit for more than one award?

Yes, you can submit for as many awards as you like. You may use the same submission for multiple categories, or you may contribute a unique submission for different categories.

I won a Cvent Excellence Award last year. Can I submit again?

Absolutely! We would love to see your submission again. You cannot, however, submit with the same content or the same example you referenced in your last submission.
