Venue sourcing platform overview

Most planners have two concerns when it comes to choosing the right venue for an event: visibility and control.

They need to know whether they're getting the most competitive rates, and they need control over the time spent securing the right venue.

The Cvent Supplier Network connects meeting and event planners to 280,000+ venues worldwide and allows them to send one eRFP to multiple properties at once. This simplifies the process and helps them gain visibility into their meeting and event spend in order to negotiate the most competitive rates.
