So... what are HipMaps?

It’s pretty simple really!

Think of a HipMap as the handy little guide you created that slips into your guest’s pocket to ensure they’re always exactly where they want and need to be. 

  • Include only the places that you want to highlight on your map – from the insider’s local scoop on hot spots & hidden gems in the area to event logistics – you choose!
  • Curate your comments about each place & tailor your map to your audience, whether that be for guests or marketing – you choose!
  • Guests link to websites and get directions right from the app – there is no need for you or your guests to learn new technology – our app is easy-peasy!
  • HipMaps are visually engaging and designed in your style with your branding, serving as part tool and part keepsake!


HipMaps ensures that every guest feels welcome and informed — and every organizer looks like a rock star. HipMaps are both printable and used in our interactive app so ALL your guests feel the love – from the digital-savvy young’uns to the paper map-loving elders!

“Not only is Rachel LeRoy a joy to connect with, but the HipMaps concept takes something of necessity (especially for people like me who have zero sense of direction!) and combines it with creative and visually beautiful ways to ignite attendee curiosity. What if we stopped thinking about an event as the end destination and instead, where the real attendee journey begins?”

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to create a custom map?

Every map we make is completely from scratch, we do not use templates! Once you send us your info to design the map, we will send you the first draft of your HipMap in 3 weeks. A rush service may be available, please contact us to inquire.

Yes! We love to brainstorm with you. Schedule a Discovery Call and let’s put our thinking caps on and get creative.

Head to our Shop to see the flat-rate prices for different types of HipMaps. For winery maps and other mapping services, we charge our hourly rate – please contact us to talk about your project and we will provide an estimate.

A flat-rate HipMap includes up to 30 locations on your map which is designed in your style & branding, with your curated comments about each location displayed in the HipMaps app, website links and directions to each location in the app, with hosting on the HipMaps app for one year for up to 1,000 uses of your map in the app.

If your HipMap exceeds 1,000 app uses in one year, there is a $100 charge for each additional 1,000 uses. For maps with fewer than 1,000 app uses in a year, there is a $100 app hosting fee per year (after the first year). In addition, if you would like to make changes to your map after it is designed, we charge our hourly rate to update the map – and we can provide an estimate before we begin.
