Brella vs. Hopin — which is best for your event?
How Brella's pricing compares to Hopin
Hopin's lowest plans make it an affordable alternative for smaller (and simpler) events, but sacrifice key features and access to comprehensive service and support offerings — there are also limits on the event duration and attendee numbers.
Brella's starting price is a bit higher, but it turns into a very economical option for larger events with complex needs. We only offer a single plan with a user-based pricing model that provides unrestricted access to all features, apps (web, iOS & Android), support and service offerings — plus, multi-event portfolios get discounts.
Brella is the tool for engagement-first events
Brella is the platform of choice for professional event organizers and companies that host conferences and events where provable ROI and industry-leading engagement rates are critical.
An affordable pricing model, all the support and guidance needed to make the most challenging events successful, and features that meet the highest quality standards make Brella a surefire option to keep attendees (and sponsors) coming back for more.
Which tool is best for in-person, virtual and hybrid events?
Both Brella and Hopin offer features that make them well-suited for all 3 event types.
However, Brella is the gold-standard for events that require strong networking and engagement features — whether they are in-person, virtual or hybrid.
Brella can serve a matchmaking & networking tool at in-person events, a complete online event platform for a virtual event, or a matchmaking, engagement & content delivery platform that connects in-person and virtual attendees at a hybrid event.
