Transforming Your Events with AI

  • 1.  Transforming Your Events with AI

    Posted 06-05-2023 11:52

    Happy Monday! For this Huddle of the Week post we are talking about something that is everywhere (it seems like) these days…machine learning and AI.

    Machine learning and AI are transforming the events industry, making personalizing experiences and anticipating attendee needs easier. With the help of machine learning and AI, event planners can now gather and analyze data to make more informed decisions and improve ROI. But that's just the beginning. We have some exciting things here at Cvent that will make your life easier, like our AI writing assistant, but we would love to hear from you on what you are most excited about when it comes to AI.

    Questions for you:

    1. What aspect of the event configuration takes you the longest to create?
    2. What intelligent feature or features would you most like to see from Cvent?

    Are you ready to take advantage of these game-changing technologies? Check out our new webinar on June 8th – Step into the Future with Machine Learning and AI - and learn more!

    1. What aspect of the event configuration takes you the longest to create? Usually the main page/landing page - I am very picky on the look/feel and first impression.
    2. What intelligent feature or features would you most like to see from Cvent? Honestly no clue - AI is such a new thing for me and I am still unsure if it's something I would embrace - I'm a bit old school!

    1. What aspect of the event configuration takes you the longest to create? - registration paths, session reports, alerts for events with more than one track. And keeping the formatting consistent across the site. The "Themes" section isn't informative enough (in my opinion) on what fields land where within the website designer.. It is trial and error and find myself manually reformatting certain fonts, colors, widget dimensions by page, rather than across the full site. 
    2. What intelligent feature or features would you most like to see from Cvent? - Registrants being able to go in, post-registration, and pay fees for a group of folks - even if they don't all register at one time as a "group" or "guests" in Cvent. Perhaps a "shopping cart" option with confirmation numbers provided to supply a bulk payment - and one step further - an option to download bulk invoices for Offline Payments?!

      Honestly, I worry about the incorporation of AI in everything. To me, this would only be useful if you're using content I've already created somewhere (like course descriptions in a program book) and the AI is reusing that to set up a template that I've already OK'd.

      I don't want an AI creating content, because then I have to worry too much about if it got it right. That's more work for me, not less.

      What I want is a way to have an automating take care of the cut-and-paste process of moving info into multiple places (program book, online registration, emails, etc.)

      1. What aspect of the event configuration takes you the longest to create?
        1. Definitely the headers and footers, since they can't be copied. Then session management for attendees, since many of my events have assigned sessions. Finally, building emails, not necessarily for content, but just for the number of them. 
      2. What intelligent feature or features would you most like to see from Cvent?
        1. I'm not so big on AI writing features, because I prefer to handle that myself, but I would love to see a feature that could help organize or clean up the media library.

      1. What aspect of the event configuration takes you the longest to create? The landing page.  Usually it's because the stakeholders don't know what they're looking to utilize for the event in terms of session topics and offerings.  And often they can't verbalize what they're looking for so you start building only to be told, "No, that's not what I pictured," even though they can't describe what they picture.
      2. What intelligent feature or features would you most like to see from Cvent? Agenda building maybe.  Perhaps if someone selects a session, others could be recommended with similar topics or level of knowledge.  Similar to utilizing tags, but for attendees who may not be familiar with them and would rather be offered suggestions.

      1. What aspect of the event configuration takes you the longest to create? Probably the layout, even with our branding I like things to look clean and similar to my other sites without being too templated. 
      2. What intelligent feature or features would you most like to see from Cvent? I would love for AI to look at other sites in our instance, and make suggestions.

      1. What aspect of the event configuration takes you the longest to create? Usually the design portion, with the responsive design it takes a lot of moving things around to get it all to look right.
      2. What intelligent feature or features would you most like to see from Cvent? Would love to see if we make something look basic 'design' options - kind of like powerpoint does with slides. Like "we know you made it look like this, but isn't this 1000% better??"

      1. What aspect of the event configuration takes you the longest to create?  Sessions, reg paths, and sometimes web development. The builder/canvas is so much better than what we had years ago in Starcite and RegOnline, but there are times the widgets and detailed build are so hidden or complex that it's still hard to build a website (or Access Portal) just the way you want it without some professional help. I am a bit rusty so it may be user error, but every little bit helps as we are all juggling a multitude of tasks!
      2. What intelligent feature or features would you most like to see from Cvent?  I'd really love a deeper dive from Cvent on this topic at CONNECT. I know you just hosted the webinar on June 8 and I missed it, but I think we're all curious about how to integrate and how to keep the value of a person controlling/managing/building. I need help not only understanding the technology benefits and real-world application as it's not stopping anytime soon, but I also need to know where to carve out my value as a event professional.
