MCI, the global leader in meetings, events, and conventions, is pleased to announce a new strategic partnership with Cvent, a leading technology provider for the meetings, events, and hospitality industries. MCI and Cvent have created the first-ever platinum-level partnership to serve the dynamic needs of the complex and customized events industry – serving both associations and for-profit organizations.

“With MCI’s vast event knowledge base and high-touch, high-tech integrations and customizations built on Cvent’s unsurpassed technological platform, we can now deliver a consistent, streamlined user experience for events of all sizes,” said Shawn Pierce, President, Strategic Meetings, Events & Incentives, MCI USA.

In the United States, MCI USA’s ONEsystem+ platform will build upon Cvent’s core technology to offer additional services, integrations, and customizations to standard registration, housing management, onsite, and lead cultivation systems. This cutting-edge, customizable technology solution will accelerate MCI’s ability to launch large, complex trade show and conference registration sites quickly. Smaller corporate and association events will also be able to use the same powerful registration capabilities traditionally only accessible for large events.

“This partnership with Cvent builds on MCI’s philosophy of innovation in our core platforms and key technologies that have the potential to disrupt the industry. We look forward to working with Cvent to develop creative solutions for our clients,” commented Richard Torriani, MCI Chief Operating Officer, Americas.

MCI is unveiling this collaboration at the 2019 Cvent CONNECT at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Members of the MCI USA team are onsite throughout the event to explain how this global partnership will change the way the event industry operates.
