The Cvent 2022 Q1 Planner Sourcing Report: Europe Edition is the biannual pulse check of meeting and event planners’ sourcing plans and priorities; uncovering the trends that will help hotels and venues understand how best to attract, engage and support planners across the UK and western Europe as they source events in 2022 and beyond.
Cvent, a market-leading meetings, events, and hospitality technology provider, commissioned independent research company, Censuswide, to survey over 500 event planners, managers, coordinators and directors across the UK and Europe (France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain) in January 2022.
Venue representatives and planners are invited to join Cvent’s live webinar on Tuesday 29 March, 2pm GMT, which will provide deeper insights into the report findings. Karla Pearce, Marketing Director Europe, Cvent Hospitality Cloud will lead the discussion joined by meetings, events, accommodation and travel management specialist: Anna Snoep, Director of Operations, Inntel. The webinar is free to join and industry professionals can register here.

This webinar offers insights into current planner sourcing trends, and we’re excited to have Anna join the discussion to give hospitality professionals the opportunity to hear first-hand from an event professional.”
