What is the best software for online events?

We're a small team of 7 working in the event space and I've received a lot of requests about online / virtual events vendors. Would love to get feedback from other customers.

I run a conference business. Hopin is the best. We've demo'd everything from Run the World to Brella's new virtual feature to Crowdcast and all the legacy players.

With hopin you get:
- Mainstage streaming keynote, panel, roundtable presentations and discussions
- Face-to-face video networking and meeting opportunities
- Easy break-out virtual group session offerings
- Workshop and education session room area
- Engaging live chat and poll interactions
- Interactive virtual expo booths to learn more about companies and products
- Private virtual backstage/green room for speakers

Crowdcast.io, Run The World, and Hopin have all been easy to use and get the job done

I would strongly recommend Airmeet (https://www.airmeet.com/) we as a community have tried this to do online events and it just works and gives you desired outcomes.

I recently used Airmeet for attending a virtual event, and it has a fresh new format which mimics a real world conference/meetup. Attendees can join different tables (upto 4 people) and start a video conversation. You can jump in and out a conversations as you wish. It tries to capture the serendipity and variety of real world events, and makes the event more fun than a regular video conference.

The video quality is good, the UI is a bit rough around the edges (it is a pretty new product). But worth a try if you are hosting an online event.

Oh interesting, I'd wanted to try a video conferencing tool that would replicate the in-person feeling of joining small-group chats. How does it work in finding breakout groups to join? Can you join and listen before joining in, or do people have to invite you? In real groups you can overhear conversations but that breaks down incredibly fast in video calls.

What are your favorite small, single-purpose apps?

There are plenty of advanced, powerful software filled with enough features to do almost anything. And then there are the tiny utilities that don't do much, but that are great at what they do do. ...
