Here’s How To Use Our Virtual Event Platform, Hopin
Hopin is a virtual venue with multiple interactive areas to help you connect and engage. As a delegate, you’ll be able to move in and out of rooms just like an in-person event and enjoy the content and connections throughout. The Hopin platform includes a plenary area, breakout sessions, live chat features, expo booths to showcase partners, as well as networking.
Hopin is easy to use, and runs straight out of your web browser. While Hopin does work on mobile devices, for the best experience we strongly recommend that you plan to experience #AdventureELEVATE2020 using your own personal laptop or desktop computer. Hopin works best on the latest version of Google Chrome, which you can download here – www.google.com/chrome.
Your profile will let others know about who you are, your company and who you are looking to meet with at AdventureELEVATE. The more complete and robust you make it, the easier it will be for others to find you. Consider this your online business card!

Connecting Individually or in Small Groups: During the event there will be a “chat/poll/people” tab on the right hand column. Click on ‘People’ to see a list of delegates that you might consider requesting a meeting with. You may ask to connect with someone at any time.
Open Networking: You will have the opportunity to meet with other delegates in between published event sessions. The networking will remain open to delegates throughout the entire 30+ hours of this event. You are encouraged and welcome to schedule meetings or network during whatever hours work for you. ATTA online support may not be available at all hours, due to time zone changes.
Networking:Tuesday, 15 September from 1:00 – 2:30 pm Pacific time, our first ever virtual DNA will provide a light and casual networking arena for delegates to break the ice, get to know each other, discuss ways they are surviving or thriving in today’s market realities. Designed to imitate a cocktail setting, in which delegates move organically from one conversation to another, you’ll get comfortable using the event platform’s pre-assigned topic “rooms” to jump from one group to another or optionally stay in one meeting throughout this 90 minute networking session.
AdventureExchange:Wednesday 16 September from 10:30 – 12:00 pm Pacific time. The AdventureExchange is a dedicated networking session for all delegates and takes a randomized and speed-dating approach to provide traditional one-on-one meetings in our virtual setting. Tour operators, travel advisors, media, destination representatives, and industry professionals working in all other capacities within adventure travel will have the opportunity to connect with each other during this 90-minute block. Creative partnerships come from creative thinkers and needn’t fit a predefined formula: listen to a new product idea, share common challenges and solutions with colleagues, find a unique take on your company’s story and share it — the opportunities are only limited by the extent of your imagination.
