New Hopin Features - May 2020 Update
So much has happened since our last update here a month ago, so we wanted to fill you in on what's new with Hopin. Going forward, we'll be breaking these bigger monthly updates into smaller weekly updates.
Where to start! New team members, new features, and so many new users and new events. Welcome to our new Hopin organizers! Things have been quite busy and there's no sign of slowing down. We are hiring, have a new website coming soon, and some exciting news to share on the horizon.
The feedback has been fantastic, too — if you have thoughts or ideas, we'd love to hear it. Feel free to drop a comment below this post.
Let's get to the good stuff.

So much more
Due to the expanded inbound we're receiving, we're constantly looking for ways to improve our sales and support documentation and processes to make onboarding and managing your events easier. We also started doing more group demos with hundreds of people inside a live Hopin event instead of one-on-one demos.
Lastly, we have a huge pipeline of new features that are coming and will be released on a weekly basis from now on. We're excited to show you what we're working on.
We're thankful for a wonderful community of organizers who are passionate about reimagining virtual events and delighting attendees as we are.
