Top 5 Cvent alternatives for planning seamless events

Cvent delivers integrated technology solutions to support every element of your event and meeting planning, from registration and marketing to check-in, badging, and venue sourcing. But Cvent isn’t right for every event or every organization. If you’re looking for a different event management solution, there are plenty of other options to explore.

Whether you’re planning in-person, virtual, or hybrid events, the following event management solutions can help you streamline and improve your event management and planning process.

1. SpotMe

Event platform SpotMe lets you create a branded, customized app and website for your event to help you stand out. The platform supports all types of events, including virtual, hybrid, and in-person events as well as webinars. Other key features include closed-captioning and live translation, a content library, social feeds, and one-on-one networking.

SpotMe integrates with technology like Salesforce, Veeva, and Marketo, making it a seamless addition to your other platforms.

If you’re looking for a hands-off management experience, SpotMe offers white-glove services and implementation teams that can help to get your event up and running. Live customer support is available in less than 30 seconds, and you can access that support 24-7.

SpotMe offers Starter, Business, Advanced, and Enterprise plans, but you’ll need to request pricing.

2. Whova

Whova is event management software that helps you streamline the tedious elements of event management so you can focus on the matters that really need your attention. It includes a wide array of valuable tools to help with event planning and execution, including mobile notifications, virtual business card scanning, email campaigns and event promotion, live polling, and ticketing management.

Whova’s event app offers robust features, including the ability to showcase sponsors and exhibitors with QR code lead collection, promotional opportunities, livestreamed demos, and more.

Whova also offers impressive customer support, with responses delivered within 30 minutes on business days. That support is also available on weekends and holidays, so you can get help when you’re holding your event.

Whova doesn’t post its pricing online, so you’ll need to request a price quote.

3. EventPro

EventPro is a platform that encompasses venue booking, event management, and catering management. You can use each element on its own or combine them, depending on your business needs. The platform is loaded with valuable features, including an integrated customer relationship management (CRM) tool, staffing and resource management, an itinerary scheduler, booth and exhibitor management, travel and accommodations management features, floor plans, and integrated budgets.

EventPro is available as software installed on your desktop or network, or as a cloud-based platform. Support representatives are available if you need help, and you can reach them by phone, fax, email, or even online via GoToMeeting. EventPro even offers a user interface customization service that puts you in command of the look and feel of your software, which can save you time and help you get more work done.

There are varying price levels, so you’ll need to request a quote for your business.

4. Jotform

If you’re looking for an easy-to-use platform at an affordable price, you’ll find it in Jotform. While Jotform isn’t specifically an event planning and management platform, it’s full of tools that can help you streamline your event management workflows.

Jotform’s event registration forms and table templates are fully customizable for your event planning needs. The drag-and-drop interface is easy and intuitive to use, and you can add your business logo and brand colors to the forms. You can even use Jotform Apps to design your own app for event registration or other purposes.

Jotform Approvals allows you to streamline the approval process for your event, so everything from budgets to speaker changes to schedule revisions can receive the necessary review and approvals, keeping your workflow moving forward and on schedule.

Jotform offers five pricing tiers, including a free Starter tier, so you can choose the one that works best for your budget and event planning needs.

5. Splash

Splash is an event marketing platform to help you prepare for your in-person, hybrid, or virtual event. With the platform, you can create custom event pages and emails. Features like smart, segmented guest lists, registration forms, targeting, and email communications ensure you have all the tools you need to promote and prepare for your event.

Splash’s workflow feature includes role-based user permissions and allows you to determine who can access event campaigns and reporting, fostering collaboration. Data visualization tools make it easy to review reporting and verify that your planning process is on track. When it’s time to host your event, features like the ability to check in guests, run surveys, and hold contests are located right within the app for a seamless experience.

You can choose from four plan options, including a free plan, a Basic plan that starts at $14,000 a year, a Pro plan, and an Enterprise plan.

Any of these Cvent alternatives can help you manage your events efficiently and professionally. With the right platform, you can stay on top of all of those essential details while working effectively and staying on schedule.
