"For years, building event websites has been a major pain point in the
industry. Design tools on the market were cumbersome, the custom
capabilities were minimal, and the result was often a boring,
cookie-cutter design that didn't properly showcase the event that it was
supposed to be promoting," said David Quattrone, Co-Founder and Chief
Technology Officer at Cvent. "This groundbreaking effort, which we refer
to as Project Flex, completely revolutionizes the way event
professionals and marketers design their websites and hands nearly all
of the controls back to them, so they can create a website that reflects
the originality and excitement of their unique events. As one of the
first touch-points event professionals have with their attendees, the
registration website needs to deliver an engaging experience that makes
a lasting impression, and our new user experience makes that a reality –
without the added complications that are typically inherent with web
design. We are thrilled to bring this tool to our tens of thousands of
customers worldwide."

Over the past year, Cvent's new user experience has been in an early
adopter phase in which more than 1,200 Cvent customers participated.
Through the early adopter program, more than 4,500 events were created,
bringing over 150,000 attendees together worldwide.

"Our early adopter program was key to the creation and success of
Project Flex," continued Quattrone. "We are incredibly thankful to our
customers who took the time to use the solution and provide their
suggestions on how to improve and package the new technology. This was
truly a team effort and the end result is a direct reflection of the
feedback we received from those who matter most, our customers."

Early adopters are already revolutionizing the way they design and
promote events through Cvent's new user experience:

  • "The ability to customize not only the look & feel, but the flow of
    registration is awesome. My team and I loved being able to work
    through the registration and edit just about everything to our
    liking."
    – Nick Sarakas, IT Manager, Junior Chamber International
  • "It's so much fun! I don't need to lean as much—or at all—on my
    creative team which has saved my organization a lot of money."

    Cecilia Golombek, Senior Associate, National Events, Global Jewish
    Agency
  • "I love how Flex gives me the freedom and ability to match my sites
    to our branding. I don't have to work through the HTML and CSS. I can
    make changes and see them in real time." –
    Elaine Barber, Event
    Communication and Operations Manager, Associated Luxury Hotels
    International
  • "Flex is going to be an amazing tool for us at Boston Scientific. I
    am supporting almost 200 users, and there is such a global interest to
    expand the use of attendee management. Flex is going to make that
    possible for us.
    " – Gaby Kotlyar, Senior Systems & Tools
    Specialist, Boston Scientific
  • "I'm not a graphic designer, nor do I have a background in web
    development, but Flex makes it super easy to create clean, modern
    registration sites."
    – Shannon Kontalonis, Conferences and Events
    Manager, World Strides
