Cvent | Meet the Cvent Check-In App

OnArrival App

Discover the better way to check in attendees by downloading Cvent's mobile app, OnArrival. It makes tracking attendance as easy as a swipe of the finger. You can search through your attendee list by name or scan a barcode. Got walk-ins? Register them on the spot.


Not going to have reliable Wi-Fi onsite? 

Checking in works offline as well, as long as you sync the app to your event in advance. If you are sending a post-event survey based on participation, ensure the data is synced by connecting to the internet before the email is scheduled to be delivered.
