Cvent Announces Partnership With ID.me to Enhance Event Health and Safety

Cvent, a market-leading meetings, events, and hospitality technology provider, today announced that it has partnered with ID.me, the leading secure digital identity network, to bring seamless health, testing, and vaccine status verifications to hybrid and in-person events in the United States. Cvent Health Check, powered by ID.me, is a user-friendly solution that allows event planners to implement a secure method of verifying attendee health status in just a few simple steps. By combining ID.me vaccine, testing, and identity verification capabilities with Cvent’s robust event marketing and management platform, Cvent customers can include additional health and safety protocols at their events with easy-to-use, confidential health checks on event attendees’ own mobile devices. Built with planner flexibility and usability in mind, Cvent Health Check allows event hosts to set specific parameters around attendees’ proof-of-vaccination, testing status, and/or health screening in a privacy-compliant manner, giving individuals sole control over their personal medical information to determine when, how, and with whom it is shared.

The portable digital ID streamlines check-in and helps to ensure all attendees meet any requested health criteria to enter the event. Importantly, no user information is passed between ID.me and Cvent, allowing for individual privacy and control while also ensuring event planners and organizers are not storing, accessing, or distributing sensitive attendee health data. “As health and safety remain top priorities for event planners and attendees alike, reliable and secure solutions like health or vaccine verifications are critical,” said Patrick Smith, Chief Marketing Officer of Cvent. “We’re pleased to combine ID.me’s proven technology and strong commitment to user data privacy with our event marketing and management platform to enable a more customer- and safety-centered approach for in-person event experiences.” “Anyone considering attending an in-person meeting, conference, or event during the pandemic wants to know that they will be in a safe environment, and in many cases, that means health checks and vaccine verifications,” said Mark Lockwood, General Manager of Commercial Sector of ID.me. “Our partnership with Cvent is enabling meeting organizers and hosts to simplify health checks and vaccination verification processes while meeting the highest levels of security and data privacy. As the industry works to return to normal, we believe our partnership will bring greater confidence to attendees, encourage higher in-person attendance, and reduce the stress and burden on event hosts.
