    Happy Tuesday and happy June, Cvent Community! Can you believe we're almost halfway through 2020? We've got some exciting releases to share today that you'll definitely want to read up on if you're building virtual events. Check out what we've got across #Event(Flex), #OnArrival, and #Admin/Reporting.


    Event Management

    Virtual Event Details for Flex Events:
    Flex events can now more seamlessly be virtual! You can now select if you want your event to be virtual when creating or modifying your event.


    Once the event is virtual…

    • A new page called "Virtual Event" will be available. Here, you'll be able to enter details about your virtual event like meeting ID, URL to join, password, recording link, etc.
    • A new category of virtual event data tags will be available for post-registration and custom emails. This makes sharing the virtual event details to your attendees easier.
    • You can build your own integrations using the new "Webcast" REST API suite.


    Virtual Event Integration Documentation:

    • The Cvent Developer Hub has a new category for the virtual event integrations on the home page. You can learn more about integrations with WebEx, Zoom, GlobalMeet, and GoToWebinar. For more information, visit this page.
    • New documents have been added for Cvent Integrations for sales and marketing systems. They help you have customized, post-event follow-ups with your attendees to keep them engaged.


    Onsite Solutions - OnArrival

    Hands-Free QuickScan:
    Hands-Free QuickScan allows contactless badge printing and check in without the need to touch the kiosk.

    Kiosk Mode Checkout: Attendees can now check out of an event or session in kiosk mode and submit signatures.


    Reporting Summary Widgets: Third Aggregations have been moved from out of the widget title line to the main area of the widget. This allows more of the widget title to be shown.

    Very excited to see this update!  However I have noticed that on the Event Emails when using the Virtual Event Data Tags they do not show the actual event information in the Design Center, Preview nor the Test Emails like other Data Tags do.  It would be helpful to see that the virtual event details are filling and not just to display "Example".  Any chance that will change?

    Hi @Jennifer Saltzman! So glad you're able to leverage these product updates to support your virtual events.​ At this time, those data tags are functioning by design, but I'd recommend submitting that request to the Ideas page to bring to our Product Management team's attention!
