    Pros
    I personally like the ease of setting up events and registration pages, clean data capturing in reporting, and the ability to push those reports to a shared company-wide portal.
    You can make your registration event pages quite robust with information- that is probably the best PRO of the software. It is also great that it is Cloud-based like all software should be these days.
    Flex is a great addition to the product - super easy to use and aesthetically pleasing.
    Cons
    If you use the legacy system, not only are you wasting your time learning a system that will be eliminated, but your events will disappear after the change as they can't be transferred.
    Poor communications with management, no intentions to resolve customer concerns or address complaints.
    Limited capabilities in e-marketing (no A/B testing, no series/time-based emails, no way for subscribers to change frequency of emails - you're either subscribed or opted out).

    Cvent Event Management Review by User of 5+ Years

    Reviewed a year ago

    Meetings, Board Meetings, Annual Conferences, International Symposiums, Workshops, etc.

    Pros

    Cvent Event management is constantly evolving with their customers at the forefront of their changes and always keeping customer needs on their mind. The customer support is amazing. There are client service specialists on-all 24/7 and they even have an option for chatting in the Support Center if you aren't able to speak over the phone. I also love the fact that the technologies are constantly changing and staying up-to-date.

    Cons

    I dislike the shift in focus and functionality of the new Flex event builder in comparison to Classic Events because it is less focused on advanced features and capabilities, which my team depends on, and is more focused on design and ease of use for ALL customers.

    Cvent is innovative and a leader in the industry

    Reviewed 17 days ago

    We are constantly evolving with our clients and Cvent has been around from the beginning of my career in the industry with our company. They listen to our needs and it provides so many advantages to be able to run an event successfully.

    Pros

    Cvent Event Management is essential in the success of an event - especially attendee management. Managing your attendees starts with pre-communications and goes to post event communications. From save the dates to registering their data and using it for surveys. It not only becomes valuable for an event planner, but for an attendee. It is what they see on their journey to a great event and when they head back home.

    Cons

    The only thing that I am still struggling with is some of the classic features that are no longer available in the FLEX update. I love how user friendly FLEX Is though so I will take the trade off.

    Good Event Management System

    Reviewed 2 months ago
    Pros

    It is a cloud solution, it has many functionalities and It manages a lot of aspects around every type of events. Also, it has some functionalities for the integration with other systems like API, Webhook and the possibility to setup the authentication thru an external Identity Provider.

    Cons

    It does not fit well for complex integration in an enterprise environment. There isn't any possibility to write custom code. The technical support is not very quick to provide information or solutions.

    Even the most complex events may be managed with this unique platform.

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    Organizing an event is no longer a challenge thanks to Cvent, which has made the entire process simple and ensured that we wouldn't forget or overlook even the tiniest things.

    Pros

    When it comes to scheduling and hosting events, Cvent provides all the tools we need. Cvent can also be used to organize large-scale, virtual, high-quality events. I enjoy the ease with which we can publish information and details about the event, and we can add links and images and format them in any way we see fit. Additionally, I appreciate the way Cvent makes it easy to send invitations and promotional links to pre-selected contacts in a variety of ways. A big advantage for me is Cvent's ability to track everything that happens during and after the event, including detailed stats and information gleaned from attendees, such as feedback or other data I may request.

    Cons

    Just a few tools do the same job in Cvent, which I don't find necessary and can be cut short, but overall they are very unique and easy to use, and allow you to arrange and manage any event no matter how complex it very efficiently.

    A Complex Platform for Complex Events

    Reviewed 4 years ago
    Pros

    I love that Cvent is constantly improving. They really take feedback seriously and work hard to find solutions to your problems. We have a very complex event, and have found solutions to the vast majority of our issues, and where some solutions were a little sticky at first, updated versions and new features have consistently improved functionality. I have found the support team helpful and while our initial representative was not the greatest, I requested a new rep which was processed quickly, and he has been wonderful.

    Cons

    There is a bit of a learning curve, but if you require a platform that can handle an event's complexity, I believe this is to be expected. Still, there are a few items that I still don't find intuitive in the interface, but I am confident the release of Cvent Flex will address many of these issues.
