Former White House head of events headlines Cvent CONNECT Europe

UK-based meetings, events, and hospitality technology company Cvent is set to welcome hundreds of industry professionals to the second annual Cvent CONNECT Europe in October.

The event will take place in the Business Design Centre in London from 1– 2 October. It has nearly doubled in size following the sell-out success of the inaugural event in 2017.

Cvent has also announced that Laura Schwartz, former director of events at the White House during the Clinton administration, will be the keynote speaker at the event.

Cvent CONNECT Europe will provide attendees with more than 50 educational sessions covering the latest industry trends and best practices.

Delegates will also get a chance for a hands-on experience at the Innovation Pavilion, where Cvent’s latest product enhancements and innovations will be showcased in a live setting.

The theme of this year’s event is “the power of live”, and will focus on the positive impact that live events have on the business world.

David Chalmers, senior marketing director at Cvent Europe, said: “We had very powerful positive feedback on the quality of content and networking that took place at the inaugural Cvent CONNECT Europe last year.

“As a result, we are taking our event to the next level with more industry expert speakers, enhanced networking opportunities, and additional hands-on training sessions. We are looking forward to another incredible conference in October.”
