The Milken Institute is a nonprofit think-tank devoted to increasing global prosperity by solving some of the world's most pressing issues facing the economy, education, medicine and more. One of the chief ways the institute brings people together, sparks collaboration and disseminates its ideas is through its 200+ annual global events.
Prior to using Cvent and CrowdCompass, the Milken Institute's planning team spent late nights and early mornings hand counting registrations and creating event programs. Once they began using Cvent's platform and a CrowdCompass mobile app they were able to spend less time on manual planning tasks.
The planning team enjoyed how Cvent's platform could handle everything from email marketing, reporting, onsite social media engagement, event check-in and program content.
For the Milken Institute's California, London and Asia Summits, event programs were completely eliminated because all speaker information and event content was put into the app.
"CrowdCompass is a great resource for staff and attendees on site to the point where we were able to forgo printed programs."– Teresa Whang, Senior Events Associate.
