Hi Cvent Community!
For our fourth "Tip of the Week" series post, we are excited to share a great outline of how you can improve the first step of your event lifecycle. That's right, we mean your RFP's and sourcing.
We have been facing unprecedented times the past months, and we understand it is affecting your events and leading to changes. Through the Cvent Supplier Network, you are able to source for your venues and submit/award your RFP's, but how do you handle it when your event is cancelled or you need to track these changes with your venues?
Have you noticed the new Cancellation Reasons yet? If so, do you find it helpful for your reporting and tracking of venue changes? Are there any other steps you are taking when managing your affected events and looking to the future for rebooking? Please feel free to share by replying to this post so others can learn and discuss from here.
If you have any questions, let us know!#CventTip
So happy to hear that everyone finds value in these features and has had good experiences with your hotel partners! Have you used any of these listed features, or have any best practices to share with other Cvent users? I've heard from some of you directly, but would love to see any suggestions and tips.
If you have any suggestions for the features mentioned (product enhancements), I highly suggest switching over to the Ideas tab in the Cvent Community. Cvent's Product Teams wants to hear directly from you the users, on how to make Cvent products better.
If you have advice or want to add any tips for handling cancellations or rebookings, please share as a public post by clicking reply. I love seeing all the discussions!
And now, my final tip for the thread: Share the love. I've heard from quite a few of you that you've had great experiences working with hotels & vendors during these trying times. Give them a shout out on social media and here on the Cvent Community. We all have a moment when a simple compliment or thank you can make our day, mine has been seeing all your happy responses.
