From 0 to 100 with Hopin
March 2020 was the beginning of a hard and uncertain time for many organizations. But not for the team at West Peek Productions, an online event production agency that creates seamless virtual experiences for its clients.
After coming across Hopin, co-founders Trévon Hill and Scooter Taylor decided to host their own fully immersive virtual event on the platform titled ‘Quarantine Con’… in just four days.
They stayed up late into the night during that four-day period, learning everything they could about the platform. The duo even met with Hopin’s Founder and CEO, Johnny Boufarhat, to iron out some wrinkles before the event.
“We found ourselves on a video call with the founder of Hopin, while he's on his couch. And he was giving us all these tips and tricks about how to execute a flawless event.” –Scooter Taylor, Co-Founder, West Peek Productions
Trévon and Scooter expected just a few hundred guests to attend their impromptu conference. Instead, 2,500 registered in just two hours using Hopin’s quick and easy registration page, and the final turnout was an incredible 5,000+ attendees.
While the conference was only meant to be a trial run for Scooter and Trévon to learn, connect, and build a community, it ended up catching the eye of several organizations that needed help with their own events. So much so that West Peek Productions was born – a virtual and hybrid events agency for modern brands.
