ConferenceDirect Selects Cvent Supplier Network as Hotel RFP Platform

Cvent, the leading provider of web-based software for the $350 billion meetings and events industry has announced an agreement with ConferenceDirect, one of the largest  meeting sourcing solutions in the country. ConferenceDirect's 280 associates worldwide, who booked over 2 million of group hotel room nights for its 900 customers in 2008, will now use the Cvent Supplier Network to search for meeting venues, send electronic RFPs to hotels for group business, compare venue bids and carefully track client budgets throughout the site selection process. The Cvent Supplier Network will streamline the site selection and decision making process so ConferenceDirect Associates are able to focus on leveraging their negotiating power and securing the best possible contract for their meeting planner customers. 

Over the last year, ConferenceDirect conducted a rigorous analysis across sourcing platforms, followed by a six-month beta test period on the Cvent Supplier Network system.

ConferenceDirect Associates will use a co-developed version of the Cvent Supplier Network that will empower them to search and source meetings to over 75,000 suppliers in a matter of minutes. This unique technology platform will enable ConferenceDirect Associates to provide superior service to their customers. ConferenceDirect's suppliers and contacts, including National Sales Offices (NSOs) and Convention and Visitor Bureau (CVB) executives, will be listed in the ConferenceDirect version of the Cvent Supplier Network platform to ensure that ConferenceDirect Associates continue to build upon their long-standing relationships and secure the best service possible for their customers.
