    SEJ eSummit has been meticulously planned to simulate a true conference experience for attendees which could not have been possible without a tool like Hopin. We’re excited to bring you a conference experience that includes all the typical ingredients you’ve come to expect from an in-person event including actionable education, industry connections, and information on tools and services.

Having a complete profile will serve you when networking with other attendees and connecting with speakers and moderators in chat.

    Aside from recording keynotes and speaker presentations in order to avoid any technical issues and to ensure a polished delivery for attendees, SEJ eSummit will be a live event. Speakers will be taking questions from the audience in real time and will stick around throughout the day for networking and chat engagements. Expo booth activities and workshops will be 100% live.

    Read More

    Keynotes and speaker presentations will be available to watch one week after the live event for attendees.

    Networking will be a 1:1 video chat experience. Upon entering the networking space, you will be greeted with a button that reads “Are You Ready?”. Once you click that button, the Hopin platform will match you with another eSummit attendee. You two will have ten minutes to get to know each other and exchange contact information before moving on to your next connection. You may leave the networking session at any time by clicking on the “Leave” button in the top right corner of the screen. If you have any issues during your networking session, then you can flag your experience within the Hopin platform and a team member will be there to assist you immediately.
