  • 1.  Exhibitor Management - Process

    Posted 01-06-2022 17:07
    Hi Everyone,

    I am looking for a lifeline in regards to exhibitor management. I am an admin on our account and many of our clients come to me for answers to their questions about Cvent. Most I can answer but for some reason (mainly that I do not put exhibitor management into use) information on exhibitor management, I can not wrap my brain around it! One of my main questions is that I am unfamiliar with what the process looks like on the planner side. I have a customer that just needs to use Cvent to sell tables/booths and register the staff for the tables/booths. This is an in person event and not using the Attendee Hub. 

    Do you launch the exhibitor portal before you launch your event? 
    Do you need to know who your exhibitors are beforehand? 

    I know that I will still have many questions. Thank you for your help!

    Hi Eva, 

    As the planner if you do not have a list of exhibitors that will be coming you can allow them to register using an exhibitor registration type. Following this in their registration process you can create an optional item for them to purchase a table or booth. From here you will be able to upload your list of exhibitors into the portal. You are able to launch registration without having added anything to the exhibitor portal. As your exhibitors register you will be able to add them on the backend in the portal. This article HERE also walks you through this process. 

    I hope that this helps!
