Cvent, the world’s largest provider of online event management, meeting site selection and web survey solutions, today announced that more than 500 new customers have adopted its event management software in 2010 to automate event management processes, decrease costs and boost event attendance. Cvent’s new event software customers include The Boeing Company, Nationwide Mutual Insurance, BusinessWeek Magazine and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, among others.

We see the recent uptick in customers adopting Cvent’s event management software as evidence that the meetings industry is gathering steam,” said Brian Ludwig, Cvent‘s Vice President of Sales. “At the same time, meeting and event planners are under more pressure now than ever to increase attendance, significantly cut spending and measure results.
