One of the world’s largest event management providers, Cvent, has released a major update to its free online event venues destination guide.
More than 6,000 pages make up the guide, featuring just over 600 venues worldwide, reveals BusinessWire.com. Some of the top features in the new guide include the ability to search destinations by type, like a beach or sporting venue.
Users can further narrow down their search by using meeting-specific criteria; such as checking the maximum amount of exhibition space and what the average hotel room rates are in the area. The search engine will additionally connect to the Cvent Supplier Network, which connects event planners with hotels, convention centres and other planning centres directly.
An upgraded look and feel to the user interface completes the transformation, meaning that the complete package could become the go-to resource for event planners across the globe.
“Cvent has been working closely with our destination partners to make the Cvent Destination Guide the premier resource for meeting and event planners who are researching locations for their next event,” said Eric Eden, Cvent’s vice-president of marketing, in a statement, cited by Conference-News.co.uk.
A further 1,000 destinations are set to be added to the guide by the end of the year, said Mr Eden, adding: “The new features and content on our site will greatly benefit planners and our destination partners around the world.”
