Hopin x AhaSlides: A New Collaboration for Interactive Events


Lakshmi Puthanveedu 30 August, 2022 4 min read

In June 2022, Hopin and AhaSlides announced a new partnership that will bring together an innovative, new generation of event management and interactive presentations globally.

As an affordable and easy-to-use audience engagement app, AhaSlides is a must-have on the Hopin App Store. This partnership makes it much easier for Hopin’s thousands of event hosts to enjoy greater engagement in their online events.

Both AhaSlides and Hopin share an important mission in today’s remote age - to encourage real, productive interaction at events around the globe. 

I’m always in awe of what Hopin has achieved over the years and how they’ve made it easier to host virtual and hybrid events globally. I have high expectations from this partnership between AhaSlides and Hopin.

Dave Bui, CEO AhaSlides

What is Hopin?

Hopin is an all-in-one event management platform that lets you host any kind of event - in-person, hybrid, virtual - in one platform. All the tools you need to plan, produce, and host a successful event are available on the platform, making the experience seamless for both the host and the audience.

How Can Hopin Benefit AhaSlides Users?

#1 - It’s suitable for events of all sizes

Whether you’re hosting a small gathering of 5 people or a large corporate event with thousands of attendees, Hopin can help you with it all.  You’ll be able to set up a live video chat and integrate with other apps, such as Mailchimp and Marketo, to make the event successful.

#2 - You can host both public and private events

Sometimes, you might want to host an event just for a selected number of registered attendees. You don’t have to worry about uninvited people joining the event with the link, as with Hopin, you can make your event ‘invite-only’, password-protected or even hidden. You can also host paid and free events depending on your requirements.

#3 - Go hybrid, virtual or entirely in-person for events

Distance is no more an issue for hosting any event you want. Irrespective of how you want your event to be, you can host it on Hopin without having to travel.

#4 - Brand your event the way you want it

Event rooms, reception areas, main entrance - whatever it be, you can change the whole aesthetic of your event to suit your brand colours and themes on Hopin.

Hopin is trying to be a mainstream platform that connects the event hosts with everything they may need to ensure success. And as I’ve known about AhaSlides since the early days, I am sure it’s a must-have app on our platform that will help many hosts have exciting and engaging events. We are looking for ways to make this integration a lot more powerful in the near future.
