Cvent Rolls Out Major Update to Search Offerings

Cvent has significantly upgraded its Cvent Supplier Network (CSN).  CSN enables meeting planners to easily search detailed profiles of more than 100,000 event venues worldwide, send electronic RFPs detailing their meeting requirements and then compare supplier proposals with side-by-side reports – all at no cost. The new system was designed using feedback from more than 35,000 meeting planners and hoteliers, and boasts a sleek, modernized interface with increased functionality for both meeting planners and suppliers.  
 
Some highlights of the enhanced CSN include:
 
- A new Quick RFP that simplifies and streamlines RFP creation for planners and facilitates more timely responses from hotels and Convention and Visitors Bureaus (CVBs). 

- An RFI option that allows planners to easily reach out to restaurants and special event venues, particularly for smaller-scale meetings. 

- Enhanced venue profile details and filters that enable planners to more quickly find the information they need, including new sections specifically for restaurants and special event venues. 

- A wider variety and increased number of venues listed in the network, with more than 20,000  special event venues and restaurants and 50,000 venues outside North America, as well as more in-depth detail about each meeting supplier.
