Now that you have an idea on how to host a Hopin event, it’s time to think about scaling and moving toward production-level events. Hopin is a powerful platform and the opportunities are many, so we’ve created a pricing model that works for many types of events.
How Hopin pricing works
Hopin has three pricing plans.
- Hopin Free — create unlimited hidden events with less than five registrations available. This is designed for learning and testing the platform.
- Hopin Monthly. Starting at $99/organizer/month, this plan is designed for small to medium sized recurring events, like meetups, company events, online classes, workshops, etc.
- Hopin Pro. Starting at $10,000 per engagement, this plan is designed for large conferences and heavy usage of Hopin with thousands and thousands of registrations, branded experiences, customizations, integrations, and dedicated support.
To sign up for Hopin Monthly, create an Organiser Profile and go to the Billing tab to sign up.
If you’re interested in Hopin Pro, please contact us at [email protected]. The Hopin Pro plan is executed with a custom quote and contract.
Managing multiple organisations
If you have clients that you are creating Hopin events on behalf of, you can create separate organizations within Hopin and keep things separate. Each organization in Hopin is attached to a separate Stripe account and pricing plan.
If you’d like to work out a Pro plan that is shared between multiple organisations in Hopin, please contact us.
If you’d like to create a referral link for your events, you can use the Referral tab in your event dashboard. You can create individual codes for your speakers or any of your attendees.
The Hopin referral system is a way to track ticket sales that were referred from a specific link. You can view the sales generated through your referrals by clicking the referral in your Referral dashboard.
Note: to compensate your referrers, you’ll need to manage and pay them outside of Hopin. Hopin’s referral system is a way to track referrals but does not provide an automated way to dispense commissions.
Using an external registration system
You can use a third-party registration system instead of Hopin’s registration page for your events using Hopin’s “Magic Link” system on our Pro plan. The Magic Link system allows organisers to upload CSVs of their registrants into Hopin’s event dashboard and send an email with a “Magic Link.” Once clicked, this link sends your users into the Hopin event with no need to create a Hopin account or register for the event. Please contact us to learn more about how this works.
We’re building out integrations with Hopin’s API currently. To request or set up an integration with your Hopin event and a third-party software, please contact us.
Hybridize physical events
It’s straightforward to set up a hybrid experience — an event with an offline and virtual version. To do this, you would set up your video production suite at the in-person event and feed the video and audio inputs into your preferred livestreaming software such as OBS, Restream, Ecamm, Switcher Studio, and others. From these programs, copy the RTMP URL and Stream Key from your Hopin Stage and paste it into the output field in your livestreaming program. In Hopin, select the Stage stream provider as “Custom.” Now you can display footage from your offline event directly into your Hopin event for your online attendees to see.
You can also follow this same process for hybridizing your vendor booths. Each vendor booth can ingest a livestream from any RTMP source. Simply select Custom as the booth stream provider and use the RTMP URL and Stream Key for that booth.
If you’d like dedicated support from Hopin to help with your Hopin events, such as train your team, set up your events, manage them, and so on, we can provide that as a part of the package in a Hopin Pro plan. We have professional event managers who can help make your online event a success from start to finish. Please let us know your requirements and we can discuss.
For users on our monthly plan, we provide support via our website chat, email, and knowledge base.
