  • Everyone had a great time! People loved the music, games, and moving between tables to talk to different small groups. Everyone was impressed, and many stayed until the very end. Three days later and they are still talking about how much fun they had! Much better than Zoom breakout rooms or events. Management was thrilled with the whole package offered by Social hour – background music, ease of changing table topics and moving around to meet individuals in small groups, and announce virtual raffles every half hour.

    Project Manager at Stamps.com

  • The party turned out fantastic! People really enjoyed moving around to different tables and catching up with different people. They loved that there weren't assigned breakout rooms and really appreciated that they could choose who they wanted to interact with at the event. Oh, the other standout feature was the background music! It really made the event feel like a party and not another team meeting.

    Chief Operating Officer at HFA

  • Social hour's breakout tables provide the closest experience I've seen to networking face-to-face at conferences. Faster and more intuitive than Zoom on many levels!

    Nick Martin

    President and CEO at TechChange

  • Social hour really sweats the small stuff to make better virtual events. You know who’s in the room and what they're talking about, quickly creating intimate small group conversations. It's easy to use and navigate. As natural as walking into a real mixer!
