The main programme of keynote addresses, workshops and panel discussion runs between 1100 and 1600 on Tuesday 19th October and Wednesday 20th October 2021.
Hopin will be open for you to join the event from 1400 on Monday 18th October to check out the exhibitors in the Learning Zone and familiarise yourself with the platform.
You can join and re-join the event at any point, but you may miss some of the speakers if you do!
Hopin is an all-in-one events platform chosen to make sure you get the most out of your virtual event experience. It provides a stage for keynote and other speakers, sessions for panel discussions and workshops networking opportunities and a Leaning Zone with exhibitor booths. You can watch a short intro to Hopin here
Yes please, especially if you plan to actively contribute to workshops and network with others. This will help you to hear others and be heard more clearly and avoid background noise/feedback.
The Hopin conference site will be open from 1400 BST the day before the conference. So, on Monday 18th October why not log on, have a look around and familiarise yourself with the event programme and the Hopin platform. Tech support will be available to help you with any difficulties.
During the registration process you will be asked to create your Hopin account. It is helpful if you can add a profile picture and contact details and social media links, such as Linkedin and Twitter. This will enhance your ability to network.

You can register for the conference at any time before or during the event. However, we would encourage you to register well in advance to familiarise yourself with the event platform and create your personalised agenda.
You can connect with other delegates using the built in Hopin match-making feature. You can also connect with others via direct chat, private video call and by setting up your own meetings or breakout sessions.
You will need a webcam if you wish to participate in video calls, e.g., as part of networking and when participating in workshop sessions.
Yes. There will be named technical support team members on the day. If you have difficulty registering for the conference, please email email@example.com
For further technical support check out the Hopin Knowledge Base here.
With a large number of attendees registered for the event, tech support may be stretched at peak times. Here are some ways to be ready, and solve any common issues:
You should have received a confirmation e-mail containing the event link. If you did not receive this then please could you check your Spam folder. If it’s not there then it’s worth re-registering for the event under a personal e-mail address, as the link may have been filtered by your corporate system.
If it detects any problems then here’s some common solutions:
It is best to use a Desktop rather than pad or smartphone, and for audio a headset is ideal.
Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox are fully compatible with Hopin. Safari and Internet Explorer/Edge/Chromium are not fully compatible. Using incognito mode in Chrome also eliminates some issues.
Refreshing the browser page also solves some issues during conference.
Camera and Audio Issues
Please check your browser preferences (permissions/ security settings) to make sure Hopin has permission to use your camera and mic.
A reasonable broadband connection is required for full conference connection, however you should still be able to view presentations and communicate within the chat boxes if the connection is below optimum speed.
There is an excellent Hopin trouble shooting resource here.
