CVENT DUBAI OFFICE
MEETINGS and events technology specialist Cvent has announced the opening of its first office in the Middle East.
Located in Dubai, the new location will serve as a regional hub enabling the company to service current clients more quickly and address the growing demand for its event and hospitality cloud platforms in the Middle East and Africa.
“We signed our first Dubai customer nearly eight years ago and our decision to tap into the MICE and business travel markets in the Middle East with a local office was prompted by our valued business relationships in the region and the growing demand for our solutions,” said Cvent CEO and Founder Reggie Aggarwal.
“The addition of a physical office in the region, along with a local team, will allow us to spend more time with our customers and build closer relationships with them,” said Aggarwal.
In response to increased MICE interest going into the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region, Cvent launched a separate category for MEA in its annual list of the Top Meetings Destinations, which can be viewed HERE.
With the upcoming World Expo 2020, the region is set for growth in the tourism and hospitality sectors.
