With the whole world forced to change direction and move virtually, 2020 has been the year where everyone had to adapt and grow, while building a sense of community and belonging from afar.

Cvent Community has always been a platform that helps its users learn, expand and reflect the state of the industry with the world gone virtual.

A new poll goes live every week in the Open Forum where Cvent users provide insights and can review trending responses. You can visit the Community Open Forum to check out the latest poll and vote to get a pulse on what the industry is saying. 


Some of the top questions for polling this year: 

  1. What type of virtual or hybrid events are you primarily hosting?
  2. What should be the No. 1 priority for hoteliers opening for Live/Hybrid events?
  3. What is the best way for a presenter to engage attendees in a virtual event?
  4. Did you get Cvent certified yet?
  5. How many of your events are built in Flex?
