We decided on using the Hopin platform for our #Roadmap events. Hopin is a virtual venue with multiple interactive areas that are optimized for connecting and engaging. Attendees can move in and out of rooms just like an in-person event and enjoy the content and connections you‘ve created for them.
The Hopin platform provides four functionalities:
_ The stage is for live speakers, presentations, talks, interviews, live-streaming, and webinars. Up to five people can be on stage at a time and 100,000 attendees can watch the stage at your event.
_ Sessions is the area for live video group discussions, workshops and breakouts. You (and your attendees) can set up virtual roundtables in Sessions based on a topic.
_ Networking is where one-on-one conversations take place. Attendees are matched randomly and can connect. Attendees do not meet the same person twice at an event.
_ Expo is for your virtual vendor booths.
Depending on the speakers proposal, the session will be on the main stage or on a session stage. For an insight session slot there is no restriction for the number of attendees. For a workshop session slot, there can be up to ten people active on-camera. If needed this number can be set up to 20.
