Reggie Aggarwal

CEO & Founder, Cvent

Reggie Aggarwal is the CEO and Founder of Cvent, a market-leading meetings, events and hospitality technology provider. A lawyer by trade, Reggie founded Cvent in 1999, with the goal of making meeting planning easier for his peers in the business community.

The Cvent business idea first came to light after Reggie spent years painstakingly planning hundreds of events for the Indian CEO Network of which he was president. Driven by the desire to transform the meetings and events industry, Cvent has grown to 4,800+ employees and 21,000+ customers worldwide. In March 2023, Cvent entered into an agreement with Blackstone to be acquired for $4.6B. The transaction closed in June 2023, making Cvent a private company under Blackstone, one of the world’s largest private equity firms.

Cvent is now a leading meetings, events, and hospitality management technology provider, with the solutions organisations need to automate and simplify the entire event planning process and maximise the impact of their in-person, virtual, and hybrid events. Cvent’s platform powers millions of virtual, in-person, and hybrid events for thousands of organisations, including 50% of the Fortune 500. The Cvent Hospitality Cloud partners with hotels and venues to help them drive group and corporate travel business.
