Tripleseat | February 03, 2023
Tripleseat, a prominent cloud-based sales and catering management platform for hotels, recently announced a collaboration with Cvent, a leader in events, meetings, and hospitality technology, creating a new integration that will unite and automate the event management and inquiry process.
This integration will connect the Tripleseat platform to the Cvent Supplier Network. As a result, event planners utilizing Cvent to submit a request for proposal (RFP) to venues will automatically be added as new leads on the Tripleseat accounts of the respective venues. To benefit from this integration, venues must be a Cvent Supplier Network member as well as a Tripleseat customer.
Moreover, the integration allows venues, particularly hotels, to gain from the global reach of the two companies. More than 15,000 hotels, restaurants, and unique venues worldwide use Tripleseat to book 10 million events and experience a 35% increase in customer revenue. Additionally, over 90,000 corporate planners use Cvent to source venues and manage events.
Jonathan Morse, CEO of Tripleseat, said, "There is no doubt that the number of events being planned and the cost per event is growing." He added, "Which is exactly why we partnered with Cvent. Our new integration will help venues that work with both Tripleseat and Cvent to reach thousands of event planners who are looking for properties to host their events in 2023."

Cirium's 2022 On-Time Performance rankings examine the world's top airports and airlines. This study honors the aviation industry's on-time performance.
Cirium, a global aviation analytics leader, named Azul Airlines the best on-time airline for 2022. This week, the Cirium 2022 On-Time Performance Review came out. It is the world's standard for how well airlines and airports do.
Last year, many airports and airlines had trouble with delays, disruptions, and insufficient resources. North America and Europe were significantly affected. However, Asia-Pacific is trying to break free from COVID's grip. As a result, many airports and airlines performed well despite the weather.
Delta Air Lines won the Cirium Platinum Award for operational excellence for the second consecutive year. This award considers an airline's on-time record, operational complexity, and passenger flight disruption handling.
Regional champions were Delta in North America, Thai AirAsia in Asia Pacific, Oman Air in the Middle East and Africa, Azul in Latin America, and Iberia in Europe. Haneda Airport turned out to be the world's best airport. An airport's departure time is considered on time if it's within 15 minutes.
Cirium's 2022 On-Time Performance Review's top airlines and airports deserve praise for ramping up operations quickly after a pause. Delta Air Lines performed well in Cirium's 2022 On-Time Performance Review, bringing passengers to their destinations on time, while the sector improved in 2022.
In 2022, airlines struggled to predict demand. Throughout the pandemic, they were discontented. Once the demand picked up, it reversed course in the face of new COVID variants. Last year, when the recovery started, airlines, airports, air navigation providers, and other parties were short on staff and resources. Delayed flights also caused problems. As the industry added staff, operations improved, and 2023 looks promising for the aviation industry.
