The networking area on Hopin is designed to recreate the “coffee-in-the-lobby” conversations or watercooler chats that are important at an in-person event.

Attendees can participate in one-on-one networking in the networking lounge. When you enter the networking lounge and click the Join button, the system automatically pairs you up with someone else in the networking lounge. This match is paired randomly. If both parties are available, the two are matched instantly and the video chat begins and lasts for three-minute intervals. Learn more about this feature in Hopin’s networking tutorial.

Attendees also have the option to network within a group setting in the connections café. To participate, simply join the connections café room and turn on your video and mic to chat with other conference participants.
