Talking virtual events and Disrupt with Hopin founder Johnny Boufarhat – TechCrunch
Register now to attend the event on 8/6 at 10 AM PT. Registered attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions via Slido.
Next in our series of talks with virtual event masterminds, we’ll be meeting with Johnny Boufarhat, founder of virtual events platform, Hopin, about the virtual venue we’re developing together for Disrupt.
Hopin was founded in 2007 with the aim to help organizers recreate the in-person event experience virtually. So far, it’s hosted events with partners including the UN and Dell. In June of this year, Hopin announced that it had raised a $40 million Series A led by IVP.
In our discussion with Johnny, we will cover topics including: how COVID-19 has accelerated the demand for virtual events, his perspective on virtual venues, the Disrupt virtual venue, the attendee experience, the partner experience, how sponsors can leverage the event, and what the future of events might look like. If you’re interested in attending, becoming a sponsor, or learning more about Disrupt, this is for you.
