EMCVenues announced it has partnered with Cvent to enhance sourcing functions through the company's signature VenueFinder tool. Cvent's technology now powers VenueFinder, providing planners and suppliers with additional search functions and placement resources.
"We are just thrilled with our new strategic partnership with Cvent," says Jody Wallace, president and CEO of EMCVenues. "Our VenueFinder tool is now the most sophisticated on the market with significant ability to source the right venue for each client every time."
VenueFinder provides detailed profiles of suppliers for planners to utilize in strategic online searches and with a menu of qualifying options. Profiles include specific details on property location, amenities, meeting and function space statistics, photographic images, as well as virtual tours—accessible to planners free of charge.
Planners also are able to use the services of EMCVenues by sending their RFP, at no direct cost to the planner, to the EMCVenues Sourcing Help Desk, which can aid the planner in finding the right venue, in the right location, and within the planner's approved price range.
"We are so pleased to now have this powerful VenueFinder search tool, which supports our goal of getting back to our customers quickly, with qualified responses," says Nancy Crook, EMCVenues' director of online sourcing. "Our customers can not only use our sourcing team to aid with their search, but can also leverage our supplier relationships with brands and small and independent hotels alike to support their budgetary goals."
