Frequently Asked Questions

Before the day


What is Hopin?


Hopin is an online events platform chosen to make sure you get the most out of your virtual event experience. There you will find our main keynote speaker, panel discussion, workshop sessions, networking opportunities and the digital Expo Booths. You can watch a short intro to Hopin here .


How can I ensure a smooth experience on Hopin?


As Hopin is a bit more demanding than Teams or Zoom, please use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox as your browser to connect. Both browsers are fully compatible with Hopin.
