Meetings and Events Technology Systems

Although there are many systems that provide Event / Registration / Delegate Management, there are only a handful that provide an end-to-end platform to manage the entire lifecycle of an event. That is, to combine a supplier database and online RFP tool with registration, group travel and meetings management functionality.

After Cvent’s acquisition of Lanyon in 2016, the only truly global integrated platforms are Cvent and eTouches, with systems like Lenos, MeetingBox by Succevo and Ungerboeck lacking an integrated venue database with RFP process. Other systems that specialise in registration include Certain, EventPro, EventsForce and eventtia, while EVED has procurement and payment features that complement most systems.

Another group of systems combine venue sourcing with meetings management, but don’t have their now registration tool. These systems are targeted toward UK agencies, for whom the global tools listed above are ‘too US-centric’. The systems include Gratis by Venue Directory, ABC Connections and BookIt.

Add to this the services provided by GDS’ and accommodation booking engines, and you can see why the meetings and events industry is so challenging!

Smartec works independently and with impartiality, and can work with any client-preferred system. Or it can recommend a solution, based on an organisation’s requirements and business objectives.

​The main systems are listed below, with a link to their website.
