Smart Events Cloud is a Single Cloud-Based Platform to Manage All your Meeting and Event Needs

For mid-sized and enterprise organizations, the Lanyon Smart Events™ Cloud provides strategic meetings management and event marketing tools on a single enterprise event management platform. Use this solution to gain a complete 360-degree view across all of your meetings and events activity.

Unlike other point solutions for event management, the Smart Events Cloud is revolutionizing the meetings and events industry by providing organizations with a complete, 360-degree view of their meetings and events ROI.

Procure the Right Suppliers for your Meetings and Events

Gain a total view of what you spend on meetings & events across your entire organization and save, on average, 10%-25% by tracking use of preferred hotels and negotiating better prices. Shop for hotels from an online marketplace with tens of thousands of global hotels and create electronic Request For Proposals (RFPs) in ready-to-go or custom templates.

Plan and Budget Your Meetings and Events

Centrally plan and manage all your meetings & events; and protect your company from risks such as non-compliance to spending guidelines and industry and government regulations. You have all the tools you need to easily centralize planning, manage planners, forecast future spending, and budget and track out-of-policy event spending.

Promote and Build Your Event Like a Pro
