Johnny Boufarhat, CEO and founder of Hopin is this week’s guest on The SaaS Revolution Show.

Online events have surged in popularity as a result of the covid-19 pandemic and the cancellation of all in-person conferences and events. One company leading that charge is Hopin, the all-in-one events platform that we used for SaaStock Remote. Johnny shares his insights on the future of the events industry, why the best online events are those that facilitate the serendipity of in-person ones, and a little of Hopin’s sudden jump into hypergrowth mode since March 2020.
