The events and hospitality industry has faced unprecedented challenges in recent times. Events have been canceled or postponed, causing havoc for suppliers, venues, and clients. However, amidst the chaos, the industry has been forced to embrace technology and develop an online presence to engage with audiences. One platform that has been leading the way is HOPP.

Embracing Technology for a Brighter Future

HOPP, an innovative online platform, has been connecting clients with suppliers in the events industry. Tor and Ted, the founders of HOPP, witnessed firsthand the struggles of finding the right suppliers for the job. They saw the need for a digital solution to make exclusive industry knowledge available to everyone.

HOPP

Unlike traditional methods that relied on word-of-mouth recommendations, HOPP's goal is to empower clients and energize the industry by giving exposure to brilliant suppliers. With an extensive network of florists, caterers, entertainers, venues, and more, HOPP has become a go-to platform for event planning needs.

Connecting Clients with Trusted Suppliers

One of the standout features of HOPP is its curated selection of suppliers. The platform only includes the best of the best, ensuring clients have access to trusted professionals. HOPP's revenue comes from the suppliers who have profiles on the platform, allowing event hosts and planners to browse profiles and connect with their preferred suppliers without any referral charges.

Empowering Clients with Choice

A Collaborative Approach

HOPP understands the value of collaboration between event planners and suppliers. It is not a replacement for party planners but a powerful tool that helps them discover new, talented suppliers. HOPP ensures that clients have direct contact with suppliers, fostering open communication and allowing the best possible outcome for their events.

HOPP's journey has been filled with valuable lessons. The founders have learned the importance of patience when building an innovative website like HOPP. They have also recognized the strengths in each other - Ted's ability to see the bigger picture and streamline workflow, and Tor's energy, ideas, and deep industry knowledge.

Looking ahead, HOPP has exciting plans in store. The platform will continue to focus on connecting clients to suppliers while offering tips, advice, and even podcasts. Online tools such as timelines, budget calculators, and mood board templates will be introduced to make event planning easier than ever before.

HOPP Supplier Showcase

In the fall of 2020, HOPP has planned a Supplier Showcase at West Wycombe Park, where suppliers can showcase their talent and clients can connect with the best in the business. With an unwavering commitment to excellence, HOPP continues to revolutionize the events and hospitality industry.

Thank you Tor and Ted for sharing your inspiring journey and for providing a platform that empowers both clients and suppliers in the events industry.
