Event technology organisation Cvent has announced plans to expand its European footprint as it aims to hire nearly 1,000 employees around the world in 2019.
The company will double the office headcount in Frankfurt and will continue to increase hiring efforts for its other regional offices in London and Dubai. The news comes just one year after Cvent announced it is opening a Frankfurt office which was established to provide more localised support and dedicated service for the Company’s growing German customer base.
“This is a very exciting time for the company,” said Cvent founder and CEO Reggie Aggarwal (pictured).
“We are rapidly expanding our employee and customer base in the UK, Germany and across Europe. Last year alone, we saw a 38 percent increase in DACH hospitality clients. We’re expanding our headcount to support this growing interest in event and hospitality technology in the region, and now have more than 4,000 employees worldwide.
“With more than 31 per cent of business trips to Germany attributed to meetings and events, the MICE industry is a major driver of economic growth. Our customers in the region realise the importance of utilising technology to drive revenue and capitalise on these business opportunities.”
