Likelihood to Recommend

Hopin

Hopin is quite expensive if you're holding a larger event with over 1000 registrants, and you want multiple stages. It's not suited for all budgets. It seems more appropriate for a paid virtual event, but large free events, especially since they charge per registrant instead of per attendee, Hopin may not be well suited for.

Splash Event Marketing Platform

Compared to platforms like Eventbrite, I have a hard time recommending Splash to anyone and think if we weren't forced into using it because of our involvement with Hubspot User Groups, we would not be using it.I think if the usability and other bugs could be improved along with support, then Splash could be great for small to mid-sized businesses that occasionally run events that they need 1) hosted all in one place and 2) consistent, custom branding. Or if you're running small events where you simply need a custom designed sign-up page, a reminder email and a check-in app, Splash could work for you. While they're not transparent about their business pricing, I'd have to see that before deciding whether it is truly worth it for this purpose.

Pros

Hopin

  • Hopin was very simple to use from the start. If I had any questions, they had answers on their website and their support is great.
  • I like that we could make changes on a regular basis even during the live event.
  • I like that it incorporates a lot of what you find at a in-person event and it translates well virtually.

Splash Event Marketing Platform

  • Branded Templates: With the Pro account, Splash takes your brand guidelines, fonts, logos, colors and creates customized event templates for your most frequent types of events making it easy to create new events that align with the experience of your brand.
  • Customer Service: Any time I have a problem, my Account Manager (Matt!) always has a solution. Whether it be a glitch in the page, an integration problem, or suggesting new ways to use the system. I'm never left stranded, which when you work in eight time zones, matters.
  • Ease of Backend Use: I've used other start-up event management softwares which are painful to use on the back end, buggy, and not intuitive for a non-coder. Splash is extremely easy to use and customize, which makes working with the system enjoyable.
  • Low Ticketing Fees: One of the main reasons we decided to upgrade to the Pro account is because we were hosting more ticketed events. As a non-profit, ticketing fees make a difference to our donations. Not only did Splash provide the other benefits mentioned above, they were the most competitive on credit card fees and integrated into our donation software system.

Cons

Hopin

  • Hopin should allow customers to upload pre-recorded videos to the platform (hosted by Hopin), for use during the conference. As it stands now, customers must provide their own external video hosting solution (we used Vimeo).
  • Hopin should have some customer support staff based in the USA or Canada, too--not just in the UK.
  • In view of the substantial cost of subscribing to Hopin, it seems as if the number of registrants allowed under the subscription without incurring overage fees should be somewhat higher than 1,000 registrants. (We anticipate going over that limit before our yearly subscription term is over.)

Splash Event Marketing Platform

  • When designing a landing page for an event, the functionality of the layout page is quite finicky. I would love to see the ability to add features to certain text boxes become more fluid.
  • The formatting across the layout page is not always consistent, specifically text sizing.
  • I had an issue with an account, and the support team took an extremely long time (2+ months) to produce a remedy for the issue I was experiencing.

Usability

Hopin

Hopin 10.0
Based on 1 answer
I'm a pretty tech-savvy person but I still feel that Hopin was pretty user-friendly even for those of you who are less tech-savvy. Great thing is, you can play around and test the platform with the free version which allows you to get familiar with it before committing to the paid. I learned most of it on the free version which then made me more confident when deciding to use the paid version. Not only did it help me on the setup side, but it also proved to me that this was what we needed to do what we needed to do.

For the most part, I was able to find what I needed on Hopin's site but when I couldn't find what I needed, their support was there to answer any questions we had in a very timely manner.

We love working with our account manager and priority support to answer questions efficiently and speedily. Our account manager works with us on larger and bigger picture initiatives for our instance, where the priority support is always there when you're stuck with a feature or setup, it's been great to share this resource with our global network of hosts internal and external to the company.

Alternatives Considered

Hopin

Hopin is an all in one platform, that requires little integration. They are building and updating the product more and more each day so that it's the platform has all the features that you need. From registration to hosting the event, to post-event reporting, Hopin has it all. It is great.

Splash Event Marketing Platform

[We selected Splash based on] Looks and functionality. It's the best of both worlds. Every other tool we found was good at one but not the other. I hope Splash stays on the path it's on as it really makes all the right improvements to be such a powerhouse tool.

Return on Investment

Hopin

  • This one is hard to say. We had a solution before, which was virtually free to use and worked okay for us. I can't really tell if using a high-priced platform like Hopin has increased the revenue brought in over the free solution. We would have to do a true split test where we sent half of our attendees to one platform and the other half to Hopin, and see if the additional spend is worth it. As far as true ROI, it's hard to compete with an infinite ROI since the other solution was free. But using Hopin may result in additional profit, meaning we may have made at least our investment more and then some over what we would have made using the free solution.

Splash Event Marketing Platform

  • It helps me manage a number of events that I would not otherwise be able to make invitations for, manage rsvps, and do check ins. We used a more expensive product previously but it had fewer features so this is definitely an upgrade.
  • Using Splash saves me time from needing to follow up with guests. I also love the "send later" feature for email.
  • The support staff make this product super valuable as I am able to accomplish more with their help.
