The company also announced the launch of standardised COVID-19 related business transient questions for safer and more efficient sourcing
Cvent, a market-leading meetings, events, and hospitality technology provider, has unveiled new offerings within its Cvent Supplier Network and Cvent Business Transient solution (formerly Lanyon). The new offerings were developed to allow for safer and more streamlined sourcing processes in an environment where health considerations are paramount.
Cvent Supplier Network: Source Safely
The new Source Safely microsite, located within the Cvent Supplier Network, compiles the latest health and safety information representing more than 31,000 properties around the world. The site offers the largest, most up-to-date global database of venue health and safety information available and includes information from destinations and CVBs, hotel management companies, independent venues, and global hotel chains including Hilton, Hyatt, and IHG, to name a few. The site will be updated regularly, ensuring event planners have the latest information conveniently housed within the Cvent Supplier Network, the largest meeting and event venue sourcing database in the world. Source Safely is the first of several new Cvent Supplier Network product enhancements that will allow event planners to plan, market, and manage safer meeting and event experiences.
Cvent Business Transient: COVID-19 Questions
In response to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, Cvent has standardised a set of nearly 60 questions related to hotel health and safety protocols which will expand on the current business transient RFP process. The standardised questions minimise the time it takes for hotel suppliers to provide answers to their buyers, while allowing for travel managers to efficiently evaluate health and safety regulations alongside the property bids they are considering.
The questions were formulated based on extensive research and feedback from corporations and travel management companies and the standards and programmes of global hotel suppliers. The questions also incorporate the recommendations from industry-leading organisations such as AHLA. The COVID-19 questions are available now for suppliers to answer and will be available in early August to all Cvent corporations and travel managers to view as a part of the RFP process.
