When the pandemic hit and event planners and marketers worldwide began to pivot to virtual, Cvent pivoted right along with them. And as the world changed and adapted, so did we. Turning Cvent CONNECT Europe, a conference known for multiple educational tracks, exciting speakers, countless networking opportunities, a one-of-a-kind trade show, and out of this world parties into a virtual event wasn’t easy. The team had to figure out how to make a naturally engaging event translate to the virtual space. Backed by our own event technology solution, we didn’t just make a shift, we made a big change.

Event Tech for the “New Normal”

A virtual event is nothing without technology, and as we looked to move our event online, we noticed some gaps. The solution we wanted, that would give us the engagement and data we needed, didn’t exist. So, what did we do? We built our own. And we didn’t just do it for us. At Cvent, we remain committed to helping you be ready whenever – and however – your events return. For many organisations, virtual events are now key elements of their go-forward strategy, and we’ve been hard at work to ensure you have the tools to connect to your audience, wherever they are. This year alone Cvent has helped our customers execute over 60,000 virtual events. 

Which is why we're excited to introduce the Cvent Virtual Attendee Hub®.  


Our tech teams went to work to create a solution that was built directly within our event marketing and management platform to deliver a true end-to-end virtual event solution. Now, one platform allows you to seamlessly promote your virtual event, register attendees, and give them a fully branded, engaging virtual experience. We’ve also included powerful tools to help you deliver real value to your sponsors and exhibitors, and analytics so you understand event performance, and maximise impact.

Cvent CONNECT Europe Virtual

Cvent Virtual Attendee Hub will power Cvent’s annual event technology conference, Cvent CONNECT Europe Virtual, on November 10 and 11, which is set to be one of Europe's largest gathering of meeting and event professionals in history—7,000 registrants! The virtual conference will provide attendees, many of whom who are looking for tools to run their own virtual events, with a front-row seat to the Cvent Virtual Attendee Hub experience.
