Onsite Check in and Registration

OnArrival allows planners and event staff to check attendees into
events and sessions as fast as possible. Staff can search the list of their
current registrants by search, quick alphabet navigation, or scanning a
barcode. All data syncs seamlessly and automatically with the Cvent
Event Management System:

  • Search by name, company, email, or confirmation number
  • Quick alphabet search allows for fast navigation of the registrant list
  • Bluetooth Laser Scanner Integration drops scanning time to below one second

Self-Service Kiosk

Impress your attendees and reduce staffing needs by deploying OnArrival in Kiosk mode. Guests can register, check in, pay, check in their guests, and preview/edit/print their name badge all on their own.


Wireless, On-Demand Badge Printing

Pre printing name badges can be quite painful. There are always changes onsite, new registrations, errors on the badge and setting up lines by alphabet groups isn’t exactly the best way to impress your guests. OnArrival does’t require a technician to setup the printers either. Just connect the iPads to printers via wireless bluetooth technology and you are set to start printing badges. OnArrival supports all Zebra printers compatible with the Zebra Link-OS™. See FAQ for details and a list of supported models.


Payments, Extra Sales & Donations

With OnArrival, you can collect payments quickly and securely just by swiping a credit card. Great for walk-in delegates or registrants with an outstanding balance due. In addition, OnArrival allows organisers to sell additional items like T-shirts or Books. If you are raising funds, sell raffle tickets or collect additional donations onsite.

OnArrival Premium

OnArrival is available at no additional cost to Cvent’s Event Management customers. While OnArrival has been great for smaller and simpler events, OnArrival Premium is now available for larger events. At an additional cost, OnArrival Premium can help you handle the more advanced needs of larger events including:

Badge Printing

Decrease badge waste and check-in time by printing badges on demand as each attendee arrives.

Kiosk Mode

Provide a high-tech experience, reduce staffing needs and decrease check-in time with self-serve kiosks.

Check Out Mode

Track both check-in and check-out times for the event and sessions. Great for events that are awarding continuing education credits.

Signature Collection

Need additional verification of an attendee’s presence? Collect a signature on check-in and/or checkout.

Wireless Laser Scanners

Use wireless laser scanners to reduce check-in time and get hundreds of attendees into a session in minutes!

Session Tracking and Access Control

Track who attends which sessions. If you require pre-registration for sessions, you can red-light/green-light delegates as they show up at the door of the session.
