Welcome to the 'Back to Business' Networking Event. This is an online networking event aimed to help you connect with local business professionals in the Greater Toronto Area.  During a time when physical networking is just not possible, we wanted to provide an outlet for you to meet new people and continue to build your professional network. We may not all be ready to get back to business like it once was, but as we start the process for returning, this event will help you connect with local professionals for help, resources, and most importantly, to make new business connections. 

Key Elements to this event:

  • Easy to use online platform on desktop or mobile interface
  • See who else is at the event (name, profile picture, and bio)
  • Easily toggle between main room, exhibitors, and 1-to-1 networking zone
  • 1-to-1 networking automatically connects you with another event attendee for a private and timed video call
  • Option to extend your 1-to-1 networking chat further with an untimed video call
  • Easily see someone's LinkedIn profile to connect after the event ends

Q: How does one-on-one networking work?

Hopin is the only events platform that provides one-on-one meetings, like speed networking, in an event.
When you join a One-on-one, you are paired up with one person at a time via Hopin’s video chat for a set amount of time that is conducive for a facilitated networking session.
Once the time is up (there’s a timer), Hopin automatically moves you to the next person. Matching is 100% random. You can stop meeting with someone and move to the next person anytime you want. You can also set up a private continuation of the video call should you decide that you need more time to network and talk with that particular person. 

Q: How is Hopin different from a webinar or video conferencing platforms? 

Hopin is the only all-in-one, digital events platform. Hopin is the only platform that provides everything to host an event with sessions, keynotes, webinars, breakouts, networking, and fireside chats. But that’s just the front of the house.
