Though challenging, this year has presented an incredible opportunity for our team to strengthen their digital event experience. The #REDSQUAD strongly believes in utilizing a variety of virtual event platforms to curate the best experience to suit the needs of our clients. With that being said, platforms like Pheedloop, Hopin, and AirMeet have proven to be fan favourites due to their robust capabilities and simplicity. Hence why we are thrilled to announce that Redstone is one of the first agencies, worldwide, to become a Certified Hopin Partner!
Virtual events are evidently here to stay for the foreseeable future and of course, this will lead to hybrid events (or already has depending on your location in the world). As we continue to operate in this digital event space, we’re confident the Hopin platform is well positioned to support our client needs, whether it be fully virtual or hybrid. Check it out for yourself!
With this incredible partnership came the opportunity for our events team to participate in the first-ever certification program for agencies. We’re pleased to celebrate the following team members who have demonstrated their proficiency and understanding of Hopin’s capabilities by obtaining their certification:
Jenna Attard, Event Planner: “I find Hopin to be extremely user friendly for attendees. As a virtual event platform, it provides many opportunities for attendees to interact with each other. Of course, we are all missing in person conferences, but Hopin strives to mimic the in-person level of engagement with easy-to-use features like the networking tab, session chats, event wide chats, and seamless integration with Slido.”
Shayna Asgill, Event Manager: “My favourite Hopin feature is it’s functionality – it is very clear and easy to use when putting an event together!”
Sarah Christens, Event Planner: “My favourite feature in Hopin is the integrated polling and Q&A. Having those features built right into the system makes it very seamless to engage attendees without them having to leave the platform. Attendee engagement is more important than ever with virtual events. It can be really hard to keep them engaged, so making it very simple directly in the platform is a very effective way to get attendees to participate in the sessions.“
Rachel Keller, Event Manager: “I love how user friendly it is, it’s easy to log in and figure out exactly where you need to be!”
Liat Korenberg, Event Planner: “Hopin has so many standout features – I personally am a huge proponent of the Streamyard integration, particularity I love the way utilizing Streamyard creates such an amazing user experience and high production value. Hopin makes it very easy for attendees to be immersed in the content and bring the event to life!”
Lauren Mincer, Senior Account Coordinator: “I love the ease of navigation on the platform which allows for great functionality for building the event and for users! I also really love seamless integration with Streamyard!”
Tawnia Politis, Event Planner: “I found Hopin to be a very engaging and user-friendly platform. I was particularly impressed with their networking functionality. You have the opportunity to connect one-on-one with multiple attendees and exchange “business cards.” As an organizer you have the option to set up networking between specific ticket holders or at random. This way your attendees can meet many people during the event and collect contact info immediately.”
Samantha Rosen, Senior Event Planner: “I love to see the live analytics in real time.”
Carly Silberstein, Chief Executive Officer: “My favourite feature is the ability to have attendees / viewers easily, quickly, and conveniently become active participants within a session (depending on how the session is setup, of course). This increases engagement, participation, and is a significant differentiator from being a passive actor.”
Sneha Shenoy, Event Planner: “Hopin is great for interactive sessions, the ability to have moderated sessions is unique and very user friendly!”
Maria Soultanoglou, Event Planner: “My favourite feature with this platform is that the organizer can easily select which segments are required for the event such as the stage, sessions, networking and expo, while creating and setting up the basics of the event.”
Jessica Symons, Event Manager: “Hopin has many amazing features – I particularity love the live analytics, robust post event reports, Streamyard integration, and the engagement possibilities! Hopin makes it very easy for attendees to interact live at an event, whether that be with each other, or during a session.”
Esther Todes, Digital Event Manager: “I love having the ability to have up to 20 people on video in a session.”
Khadijah White, Event Planner: “My Favourite Hopin Feature is that you have the ability to make your event private or public. I like the fact that public events can be accessed and promoted to anyone who may be interested in exploring the Hopin explore site.”
Our team continues to hone their skills, solidifying Redstone among the leaders within the virtual event space. The #REDSQUAD is committed to lifelong learning and looks forward to partaking in additional platform certification programs once available.
