Top 7 Vendors in the Global Event Management as a Service Market from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top seven leading vendors in their recent global event management as a service market report. This research report also lists 14 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Organizations use event management as a service to manage academic and professional exhibitions, conferences, and shows. The service is used for online registration, venue selection, online payment, procurement activities (such as negotiations, buying activities, contracts, inventory control, receiving goods, and storage), booking and billing, exhibition management, paper management, and content management. It also allows on-site operations such as registration and billing of supplies. It helps maintain the quality of an event and offers complete visibility of events to customers.

Competitive vendor landscape

According to the report, the global event management as a service market is highly fragmented with the presence of many small vendors. This creates a huge opportunity for M&A. Both large vendors and core event management as a service providers consider the M&A strategy to improve their market presence and expand their reach. Large companies acquire smaller companies to increase their product base and market share. Through such acquisitions, large companies acquire advanced technologies and have an opportunity to enter new markets.

“The competition in the market is intense as vendors are trying to sustain themselves by improving delivery models with technology. Some of the advanced features provided by Cvent are mobile-friendly registrations, WebEx integrations, and guest side accessibility standards. As many vendors are seeking to gain market share, more acquisitions are anticipated during the forecast period,” says Ishmeet Kaur, a lead enterprise application analyst from Technavio.

Organizations are assessing vendors based on their level of knowledge about document capture software and the degree of superiority in their solutions. This enables them to compete with larger players more effectively and intensifies competition in the market during the recent years.
