Cvent Secures Hotel Sourcing Partnership with Experient

July 20, 2013 MICE No Comments Email Email

Cvent, a leading cloud-based enterprise event management platform, today announced that Experient, a subsidiary of renowned meeting, event and incentive travel program provider, Maritz Travel, has selected Cvent’s hotel sourcing platform for preferred use with its clients.

Through this agreement, Experient, a top provider of meeting and event services to associations, tradeshows and government organizations, is expected to source more than two million hotel room nights annually through the Cvent Supplier Network, an industry-leading online marketplace, connecting meeting and event planners with more than 200,000 hotels and other venues globally.

“Experient is one of the largest full-service third party planning organizations and its recent acquisition by Maritz Travel has enabled Cvent to significantly expand its portfolio of meeting planner customers to include new corporations, associations and the government,” said Chuck Ghoorah, co-founder and executive vice president of sales and marketing at Cvent. “We’re thrilled about establishing this collaborative relationship and the integration of our platform with their systems to create one-of-a-kind events for clients while delivering exceptional results.”

Cvent and Maritz Travel began their engagement in 2011, and in 2012, Maritz Travel successfully completed the acquisition of Experient. With Experient now an official Cvent partner, they join the ranks of other third-party clients using this leading event management platform.

“Cvent’s platform has proven to be a valuable resource to our planners,” said David Peckinpaugh, CMP, president of Maritz Travel and Experient. “In the two years that Maritz Travel has used Cvent’s platform, this unique solution has been extremely beneficial to our business by enabling our planners to research and source world-class destinations, at premier venues for our clients, and we look forward to providing the same level of service to our association, tradeshow and government clients under the Experient umbrella.”

Through the Cvent Supplier Network, Experient associates will now be able to streamline the site-selection and booking process when sourcing an event venue. Planners can easily and efficiently submit electronic Requests for Proposal (eRFPs) to more than 200,000 hotels and venues in more than 900 major cities in 175 countries around the world and compare side-by-side bids to help them save significantly on event costs.
