USER'S GUIDE

How will the virtual summit work?


The event platform we are using is called Hopin (www.hopin.to). Hopin is a virtual venue with multiple interactive areas to help you connect and engage. As an attendee, 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 main stage area, interactive sessions, live video, and text-based chat functions, an exhibitor tradeshow to discover innovative solutions, as well as connection and networking functions.

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 the summit using your own personal laptop or desktop computer. Hopin works best on the latest version of Google Chrome and Firefox. For our complete technical specifications and a troubleshooting guide visit here

Setting up your Hopin Profile

You won’t be able to access the event until 5 minutes before it starts, but you can create your profile in advance.

Click on the 'create your profile' hyperlink. A popup window will open, from where you can adjust your profile information and add an image of yourself. You can always update your profile by accessing your account from the upper-right hand corner.


Your email is not visible to other attendees unless you connect with them via the Networking area. 


PRO-TIP: The Headline field of your profile is searchable. Include words that will help people find you like your company name and title. 

EVENT FEATURES

Similar to a physical event, you can choose where you want to go and what you would like to attend. In the reception area, you will find the complete agenda showing what is happening where.


Communication Hub

On the right side of the screen is your communication hub where you will find the main Event Chat. Use the event chat to introduce yourself and explain who you look to connect with. Make sure to follow the event chat for any important announcements and updates.

Want to see who is attending this event and connect with them? You can see and search for everyone who has registered for the event in the "People" tab. Click on the person's name to see their profile, chat with them, or invite them to a video call.

PRO-TIP: Been away from the event and curious if anyone chatted with you? In the upmost right corner, there is a notification bell where you can see missed interactions. 


Event Areas

You can navigate through the different areas on the left side of your screen

 Stage

The Stage is where you can hear from the most prestigious C-suite landlords, developers, brokerage leaders, and tech wonders ever assembled for a real estate technology conference. The stage has it's own chat so you can comment along and be part of the conversation. Missed a segment? We will have all sessions available on-demand for purchase the week following the event. 

Networking

One of the best parts of an in-person event is the kismet of randomly striking up a conversation, and boom, you just met your best new connection. The networking area brings a little bit of that random chance to this virtual event.  These 1-on-1 meetings will last up to 3 minutes, and you are able to leave the meeting at any time. If you wish to exchange contact information, both participants must click the 'Connect' button. If you connect, Hopin will share information such as your name and email address with the other participant. You can find the contacts you’ve made on your Hopin profile, under the ‘Connections’ tab. You can also select 'Unmatch' to lose the connection.

 Sessions

Sessions is where you can find a bit more niche-content and an interactive stage. Each session will be set up differently: workshops, roundtables, demos, panels, etc. In some sessions, you can even request to join the panelist on the virtual stage. If you are not camera-ready, you can still participate in the session's dedicated chat. We have 25 unique sessions over the 4 days. 

Expo

Visit the Expo to find the largest collection of commercial real estate technology and innovation companies. Preview their cutting-edge products and solutions that will solve your most pressing business challenges. Every expo booth will have its own chat so you can leave questions or interact with other participants.
