Over the last year, the world discovered virtual events as a way for people to come together, despite lockdowns and social distancing.

Hopin played a vital role in that story, enabling more than 100,000 organizers to host online gatherings for tens of millions of attendees from across the world.

What began as a necessity, however, very soon revealed a new way forward for gathering post-pandemic.

We realized that people could—and, indeed, should—be able to take part in the experiences and join the communities they care most about, no matter where they happen to be in the world.

In other words, we experienced how online events could open up a whole new world of access.

This idea—of removing barriers to shared experiences—has always been at the heart of our work at Hopin. It’s what motivated our CEO, Johnny Boufarhat, to found the company in the first place (in mid-2019, before even a flicker of the pandemic).

And it remains our north star, guiding our mission to make the world feel smaller and more connected.

It is in harmony with that idea, then, that we are pleased to launch a Free plan for Hopin Events.

Designed to extend the power of online gathering to all, this new plan gives everyone the ability to create immersive, interactive events on Hopin for free.
