Goldcast… or Hopin?

Finding the right solution for superior webinars and engaging virtual and hybrid events

Goldcast makes it easy to host fun, engaging, fully branded webinars and virtual events designed to capture valuable engagement metrics for sales and marketing. While Hopin does offer a robust event platform, they can’t compare with Goldcast’s gorgeous and intuitive attendee experience.

Superior branding

Delight your customers with a sleek, modern environment for every webinar and virtual event. Goldcast events are easy to navigate, giving attendees intuitive access to the content they want. And our branding capabilities are miles ahead of anything Hopin has to offer.

Built-in video production

Easily run live, pre-recorded simulive, or hybrid-video events with real-time WebRTC video, up to 5 RTMP video sources, and native tools for seamless video production. Hopin users have to manage complex RTMP and streaming software for event video.

Easy event entry and navigation

Our magic link and calendar-based login flow significantly improves event attendance. Once they're in the event, our unique auto-navigation feature lets attendees "binge" events by automatically directing them to the right place at the right time, every time.

Better sales and marketing integrations

Goldcast offers native Marketo, Hubspot, and Salesforce integration, making it easy to sync complete event data for every attendee, and run powerful and personalized post event workflows. Hopin's simple integrations only pass registered and attended status updates, so you have to manually upload event metrics, UTM tracking, and other critical sales and marketing metrics.

What Goldcast Customers are Saying

Nina Butler, Director of Event Experience, Alyce

One of the main reasons we chose Goldcast was because of the data grab; a lot of software don't have those different touchpoints (for collecting data). We didn't have to prepare for anything in terms of data and we're getting the leads we want!
