Veeva Events Management is designed so vendors can work directly within the system. Vendors who work on events within the system must be given log in permission. In order for a Vendor to be selected on an event, the Vendor’s status must be Eligible_vod.

Additionally, there is a Vendor object within Veeva Events Management, EM_Vendor_vod. This is used to store a list of vendors, and be used for a number of purposes.

An event can be related to a vendor via a lookup relationship. When this lookup is populated, Salesforce work flows can be configured to alert the vendor a new event is scheduled. The appropriate person from the vendor can be added as a team member to gain visibility to the event details and assist in planning.

Expenses for an event can also be tied back to a vendor, such as logistics service fees.
