What is Hopin?

With Hopin, you can create live online events that are interactive and personal

When we started designing Hopin a few years ago, our aim was to give organizers the ability to recreate the in-person event experience as closely as possible, but online and all in one place.
Nothing like this existed and we knew it would be a tall order. But over time, we have come up with a few innovative features that help you accomplish this.

At a Hopin event, your attendees can:

  • Network one-on-one over live video.
  • “Connect” and exchange virtual business cards for following up later.
  • Join breakout sessions and participate in groups.
  • Watch keynote presentations on stage, send chat messages, fill out polls, and explore interactive expo areas.

There’s also a private virtual backstage for your speakers and branding placements for your sponsors.

Our story

Whether you’re hosting a live training workshop, bringing your company’s remote team together, or launching a full-scale digital conference, it’s easy to create an engaging Hopin event for hundreds of thousands of people.


We’ve attended virtual events for years in the past and, like many of you, we didn’t have a great experience.

There has been something missing from virtual events. They just didn’t feel like the real thing. This is the problem we sought to solve.

After years of thinking and developing, we launched Hopin in 2019—the first virtual venue for live online events.

What made Hopin unique was it enabled meaningful interactions and networking between people online, just like at an in-person event. We chose to focus on engagement more than content. We wanted people to not just watch, but be part of the experience themselves.


For organizers, we developed tools for building these highly interactive online experiences. Hopin is a customizable venue that organizers can make their own. It’s:

  • Flexible
  • Modular
  • Scalable to fit all kinds of events

A few months later, we now have hundreds of thousands of users around the world and we’re fortunate to be working with leading brands to host their online events. Our team is growing fast, and we’re rolling out new features every week to constantly improve our platform.

Our goal is to reimagine virtual events from the ground up and make them so good that they become no longer a plan B option but a primary destination. We foresee a future where all events have a virtual component that isn’t a lesser experience—but is rather an equally meaningful and effective way for coming together and connecting.


Even more, if we are successful, the world becomes a better place. Hopin events bring the world together without harming it, since online events are sustainable, carbon-neutral, and 100% online, so everybody can join.
