Meet the 2022 M&IW Summit Sponsors: Everest Edition

Our signature event, the M&IW Summit, wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. This year, we are especially grateful to our Everest Sponsors, the top-tier suppliers who are joining us on our Journey to World Class. These incredible organizations are truly taking events to great heights (they are Everest Sponsors, after all). Learn more about them in their Q&As below.

Cvent

Cvent is a leading meetings, events, and hospitality technology provider. Their comprehensive suite of solutions automates and simplifies the entire event management process to maximize the impact of events. For the M&IW Summit, they are sponsoring the virtual platform.

This year’s M&IW Summit theme is Journey to World Class. How are you currently elevating your business?

As a leader in the event technology space, we’re deeply committed to delivering the innovative solutions and best-in-class support that our customers need to deliver world class events, so the “journey to world class” theme resonates. By elevating our customers through our technology—by helping them maximize the impact of their events, by helping them prove ROI, by giving them a seat at the table—we’re in turn elevating our business. 

The meetings and events space changed practically overnight when we were forced into a virtual event environment at the start of the pandemic. Today, we’re seeing the long-term impact—and opportunity—from the digital transformation over the last 2+ years. We’re seeing the increasing return of in-person experiences balanced with the desire to deliver unique virtual and hybrid events for more opportunities to engage and interact. We’re seeing the need for solutions that enable people to do more with less, which is why we’re seeing technology take a central role in helping organizations plan, manage, and execute all event types. Technology is powering an organization’s Total Event Program.  

Do you have any new products or services that are creating waves?

The Cvent Attendee Hub, built to power any event and every event, has become our fastest growing product in Cvent history. The solution is empowering planners and event organizers around the world to engage and interact with their audiences across all event formats—when they want, and how they want, for any and every event.

To remain World Class, we are redesigning our in-class content and programs to align to the over 20 virtual programs we designed and implemented during COVID to provide a seamless experience for both our learning and events customers who are looking to facilitate the new needs of the nature of the workforce. 

What are some of the trends of changes you are seeing in your space?

We’re seeing the need to reengage and reinvigorate organizational culture, facilitate meaningful conversations about redesigning work to work for everyone, and help leaders adapt so that they can lead their people at the tremendous pace of change being seen across all sectors.
