CSN Overview

Cvent Hospitality Cloud is proud to announce the most significant update to the Cvent Supplier Network since it was introduced eight years ago. We have been diligently working on this complete rethink and rebuild of the network for over a year and this has been the biggest investment we've made to the platform. Planners who have fallen in love with the in-depth, MICE-specific hotel content and advanced functionality will love the simplicity we've layered on top of our sourcing technology.

But we didn't do this just for planners. We've ensured that every change we made also benefits our partners. You'll soon see gorgeous new profiles with bigger images and more options to showcase your profile. We'll also be introducing new ways to market to planners that take advantages of the new features we're adding. We are committed to helping you target more qualified business, and this redesign is going to help get us there.

New Planner Features that
Benefit You Too


Simplified search

Now planners can search based on neighborhoods, places of interest, zip codes, and a myriad of other ways from a single search bar.

Map-based search

Planners can now search geographically through the use of our new map search powered by Google.

Mobile enhanced

The Cvent Supplier Network now works across all devices to keep pace with planners' move to mobility for search.

Date handling for deeper searches

Now planners can input their event dates and number of attendees into the search, enabling us to serve more specific matches and relevant promotions.

Shopping cart functionality

Now planners can search the Supplier Network like an e-commerce platform with a shopping cart that persists across their search. That allows us to provide planners with recommendations based on which venues or CVB's they already have in their cart, further customising their experience and helping you receive qualified leads.

Quick view functionality

For faster searches, planners now have the option to use Quick View on the search results, which gives them an overview of the venue or destination without clicking into a profile.

Promotions

We are integrating the Promotions Hub even more with targeted promotions to planners looking for event dates that match deals you have available.
