 Online meeting management tech provider Cvent unveiled upgrades to its Cvent Supplier Network on Monday. The platform, which is free, provides detailed information on more than 100,000 hotels and event venues worldwide. The latest iteration sports improvements to the interface and design, and includes new features such as Quick RFP, a shorter version of the system's standard request for proposal for faster turnaround, and an RFI, or request for information. The RFI is a more scaled-down version of the Quick RFP, designed primarily for small meetings at restaurants or other special-event venues. New design benefits include tabs dedicated solely to hotels, restaurants or other venues, for more streamlined searches. The CSN can be accessed at
