HOW TO USE HOPIN
We are using an event platform – Hopin – to host The Autos 2021 and you should have now registered on the site. Please ensure you update your profile and add a picture ahead of the night if you haven’t done already – and make sure you remember your password!
The system is easy to use and very intuitive so it will be straightforward to find your way around the site and the different elements to the evening. The key things you need to be aware of are:
The ‘main stage’ is where you can view the awards ceremony.
There are a number of ‘fun rooms’ where you can take part in some activities and interact with other team members. More information below.
We have a great night in store on the platform and to ensure you get the best from the night please watch this 'How to' video below
Fun Rooms and Bar Chats
From 6pm until 6.45pm you will be able to visit a number of Fun Rooms – or take part in a Bar Chat…
Visit the Cocktail Making Experience Room and create a cocktail by following the instructions of the in-room specialist. You can view what you need here.
The Music Room will help you to get the party started, visit this room to have a pre-event dance or sing-along and vote on your favourite songs!
Have your picture take in the Virtual Photo Booth Room – the funnier the better of course and there will be some virtual photo frames and props to help or create your own at home! All photos taken in this room will be uploaded to the site for everyone to see.
We know that one of the things people love about The Autos is the opportunity to socialise with different colleagues – some you might not have seen all year. Bar Chats is here to help! Visit this section of the site and be randomly allocated to another team member for 5 minutes. And if you want to chat to more people, stay in this area and you’ll be allocated someone new.
