How to add speakers to your event on Hopin

  • Updated


Adding Speakers brings more structure and makes the event more informative to the attendees.

Here is what you need to do to add Speakers:

  • Click the People tab on the left sidebar of your event dashboard and then Speaker
  • Now you have two options to add speakers: Create a Speaker Profile or Add Attendee as Speaker

Create a Speaker Profile

Clicking the Create a Speaker Profile button will open a modal for you to populate with the following fields.

  • Profile Picture
  • First name (required)
  • Last name (required)
  • Email (required)
  • Headline
  • Website Link
  • Twitter
  • Linkedin

Once the speaker profile has been saved, that speaker will automatically be displayed in the speaker section of the event’s registration page.


Organizers are also able to add these speaker profiles to any scheduled segment.


Note: This does not register your speakers for your event. Your speakers will still need to register for your event, either through a ticket registration or a magic link invitation. If the speaker profile is created before the speaker has registered for the event their Hopin profile and speaker profile do not merge; the speaker profile is the one that will show up during the event, not the personal Hopin profile. 

Add Attendee as Speaker

If you'd like to add an already registered attendee as a speaker to your event, then this option is best.
Click the Add attendee as speaker button and enter their name into the Select Speaker field.

Note: Your speakers must be registered for your event with a ticket in order to be selected as a Speaker. If they have registered for the event already, their name will come up automatically as you type. Only one speaker at a time can be added.

Add the speaker Headline with 100 characters max and click Save for the changes to take effect.

That’s it! The speaker has been added and will now be displayed on the Reception page of your event. Speaker information is visible to the attendees when there is no live video on the Stage.
