Hopin vs Zoom

Let’s get this out of the way and give credit where credit is due.

That being said — Hopin offers a richer, more immersive experience that won't leave your attendees fatigued. Watch the video or read on to find out how.

The things I liked best about Hopin is how user-friendly it is and the features it provided. I think it is a more modern way to connect people in the community online. It is helpful because as an attendee I can navigate through the site with ease.

The ease of navigation between tracks on Hopin is great. The layout is clean and simple and I think it's a really useful feature that when looking through the schedule, delegates can add reminders to their personal calendars straight from the platform.

There are three main things that I love about Hopin. 1. It's insanely easy to use. 2. Their documentation. It has been so easy to find step by step information on features and functions within the platform. 3. Cost. I think the pricing is very fair and I hope they keep it that way.
