Q: Can I run webinars on Hopin?
A: Yes, you can do that on Hopin. But, what we offer is much more than a webinar tool. 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. At a Hopin event, your attendees can network one-on-one, break out into group sessions, watch keynote presentations, send chat messages and polls, and explore interactive expo areas. There’s even a virtual backstage for speakers.
Q: Is your pricing per event or per month?
A: We currently have monthly and yearly pricing plans. The monthly Starter plan is $99/month while the annual Starter plan is $999/year. The monthly Growth plan is $799/month while the annual Growth plan is $8000/year. For the advanced plans (Business and Enterprise), please contact our Sales team. You can learn more about pricing here.
Q: What is the difference between the Starter, Growth and Advanced plans?
A: Feature-wise attendees don't really feel a difference amongst all plans because we include all participant facing features (networking, sessions, stage, expo, private chats) in our Starter plan to make sure everybody has a great experience. The Growth plan offers more advanced tools for event setup and management and the Advanced plan is mainly about customisation, integrations, and analytics which are most relevant to larger organisers who derive a lot of value from them.
