    Hi community members! Who's excited for Cvent CONNECT next week?! Whether you are attending virtually, in-person, are a first-time attendee, or a long-time attendee, we know Cvent CONNECT 2021 will bring new experiences, learning opportunities, and memories to all.

    To kick off the excitement, we want to hear from you:

    • What are you most looking forward to this year at Cvent CONNECT?
    • What is one of your favorite memories from past CONNECTs?
      • Share a photo if you have one :) 

    I'll kick it off with my own responses:

    • I'm most looking forward to hearing from industry leaders who have faced an unprecedented year, as we all have, and remain strong and so motivating.
    • My favorite memory from CONNECT US 2019 was the Welcome Keynote. With the thousands of onsite attendees, you could feel the energy and passion for our industry in the room. You couldn't help but leave the session feeling inspired and taking that feeling through the rest of the conference and into your own work when you arrived home.

    Let us know yours below! If you have any questions, drop those here, as well.

    It's not too late – register today to experience the technology, learn best practices, and meet with industry professionals to fuel your business and chart your path forward.

    I am looking forward to learning and expand my knowledge in the SMM portion of the system by hearing from industry leaders, other customers, and Cvent staff.

    One of my favorite memories was from 2017 where I was honored and received the Plannie Award for Advocate of the Year. This was awarded to me by the staff at Cvent for a selfless act from the 2016 Cvent Connect. Being the recipient of the award was a humble reminder that when we do selfless acts they never go unnoticed and to this day I am deeply humbled by this award because of the women in this picture and how much they believed such a small act deserved such a great honor!

    I'm still very new to Cvent, so I'm looking forward to any help for Event Planners. I always learn so much in the community and through Cvent knowledge base. I can only imagine how much more I'll be able to absorb with time set aside for the conference!

    My favorite experience was last year (my first year with using Cvent) and seeing the amazing response to the virtual event. It was a great show of how flexible and versatile Cvent and its users can be.

    I was looking forward to the roadmap.
    Unless I missed it, was there anything new for event management, other than virtual events.
    Badge wizard? Flex? Reporting?

    Thanks all for your fantastic responses! Hopefully you have enjoyed the start to Cvent CONNECT and are looking forward to the next 2 days! :)

    @Steven Schlossman Great question! The general session was kept more broad, however there are several Solution Overview sessions that are happening in-person and will become available on-demand after they complete. You can also check out the virtual booths to meet with Cvent staff if you have any specific roadmap questions - we have members from Product Management, Client Services, and so on staffing the booths.

    Best,

    Danni ​​
