    Happy Tuesday and Happy May, Cvent Community! Hope everyone saw their fair share of Justin Timberlake "It's Gonna Be May" memes over the past week - I know I certainly did. Today we've got some great #EventCloud updates across #CrowdCompass, #SupplierNetwork, and Exhibitor Management. Check them out below.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    CrowdCompass


    Added schedule time zone label to Online Event Guide:
    To make it more clear when sessions are happening during your virtual event, we've added a new time zone label to the schedule in the Online Event Guide so attendees know when to join a session live stream in their local time zone. Resubmission not required for custom branded apps.

    Polls available in local time zone on the Online Event Guide: Previously, attendees viewing a live session in a different time zone from the event would be unable to access the session's polls. Polls in the Online Event Guide will now unlock during the session across all time zones so everyone can participate. Resubmission not required for custom branded apps.

    Added the ability to sync Exhibitors via the Cvent Integration: If you're integrating with Cvent, you can now sync Exhibitors you've added in Exhibitor Management to CrowdCompass. This allows attendees to access the exhibitor profiles in the app while saving you the time of building them out separately in the EventCenter. Resubmission not required for custom branded apps.

    Supplier Network (Planner-side)


    Update to Planner RFP Cancellation Reasons:
    You can select from 4 new RFP cancellation reasons (e.g., Medical emergency, epidemic or pandemic, natural disaster, political or civil unrest) if you need to cancel your RFP. Now, these reasons are also handled through integrations. Existing customers will need to update their integration schemas to use them.

    Exhibitor Management


    Exhibitor Sync with CrowdCompass:
    (Also shared above in CrowdCompass release notes) This integration allows attendees to access the exhibitor profiles in the app while saving you the time of building them out separately in the Event Center. All updates should be made in Exhibitor Management. Updates made in Event Center won't be synced back to Exhibitor Management.

    Enabling Direct to Exhibitor App Only LeadCapture License Sales from Planner-side: This setting becomes visible to you once LeadCapture is activated. We're now allowing you to self-serve turning this on, whereas historically you would have to call Cvent Support to enable. Both options are in Exhibitor Settings right next to each other. This setting only activates App Only license purchasing in Exhibitor Portal for the specific event. Pricing and App Only license choices remain as configured in Account Management > Event Settings for the event and are reflected within the new feature setting for clarity. This works with both current App Only license choices:

    • First Purchase With Additional Purchase
    • 3 Pack Bundle and Additional Licenses
