Chicago, IL – June 23, 2023 – Gather Voices, a leading SaaS platform for automating community-driven video content for events, showcased their seamless and enhanced video content creation experience at Cvent CONNECT July 24-27, hosted by Cvent, an industry-leading meetings, events, and hospitality technology provider.
Cvent CONNECT attendees interacted with Gather Voices technology and experienced first-hand how community-driven video content can transform events by:
Gather Voices' Video Kiosk, an easy-to-use solution for capturing video content at live events, was used by Cvent CONNECT to collect attendee testimonials, key takeaway clips from attendees engaging with breakout sessions, and acceptance speeches from recipients of the Cvent Excellence Awards.
“Gather Voices makes it is easy for us to capture real-time videos that highlight the incredible Cvent CONNECT experience and enable the seamless collection and creation of attendee testimonials,” said Stacey Fontenot, Senior Vice President, Marketing at Cvent. “These customer videos can be used throughout the year to promote future events and keep attendees engaged after the event. We’re excited to showcase their technology once again at our industry event.”
Gather Voices also launched its new Speaker VideoBoost app in the Cvent App Marketplace. Speaker VideoBoost is a video-first event promotion tool that empowers event planners to turn session speakers into event promoters with engaging short-form videos. Cvent used Speaker VideoBoost to promote Cvent CONNECT 2023.
Gather Voices joins industry-leading SaaS platforms such as Salesforce, Google Analytics, Adobe Marketo, Uber for Business, American Express, and SAP Concur in the Cvent App Marketplace.
Speaker VideoBoost allows event speakers to record and publish an authentic event promo video that's instantly branded with the event's look and feel. This AI-powered solution coaches speakers to record high-quality videos anytime, anywhere, on their own device. After recording, their branded promo video is ready to use and share. Real-time reporting and analytics allow event marketers to understand which speakers' videos generate the most registrations for their upcoming event.
“Savvy event marketers understand the importance of word-of-mouth marketing for maximizing event attendance. But existing community marketing tools rely on text and image-based marketing tactics. That’s a problem because the data consistently shows that video is the most engaging and highly-converting content format out there right now. We built Speaker VideoBoost to make the process of creating, editing and sharing user-generated video content from event speakers simple so event marketers can broaden their reach and increase attendance more efficiently,” said Michael Hoffman, Co-Founder and CEO of Gather Voices.
Finally, Gather Voices and Cvent tapped into the broad reach of virtual events by integrating the video creation option directly into the Cvent Attendee Hub. This integration enables virtual event attendees to share their stories without having to leave the online experience. Video, like that collected via Gather Voices technology, can enhance events, create new revenue streams, and extend the community and learning experience from an event for months.
Gather Voices was built to empower organizations to co-create video content at scale with their community anytime, anywhere. Our turnkey solutions simplify the video process for you and your customers. Collecting, editing and sharing their stories is as simple as it is engaging.
The Video Kiosk from Gather Voices makes it simple to collect high-quality video content at live events. And because the Gather Voices software automates processes like branding, securing digital rights, and captioning, videos collected at the event can be used to inspire others and create more impact in real-time.
Gather Voices’ Speaker VideoBoost app, available in the Cvent App Marketplace, is the only video-first event promotion platform. It’s an easy-to-use, word-of-mouth tool for event marketers, enabling session and keynote speakers to promote an event in their own community using video.
