Promote your event, increase ticket sales, create a sense of community, and engage attendees with an event social wall
No credit card required.
An event social wall is an engagement tool that allows you to collect content posted by attendees and speakers using your event’s hashtag. If your event is private, a social wall will help you connect with your attendees by making it easy for them to upload content directly on the wall. The event wall acts as a social hub and encourages interaction between attendees, speakers, sponsors, and fans.
It enables you to curate the content and display it on a screen, embed it on your event website or live stream, or show it before and after each session.
Collect content from your event’s hashtag and the event’s official social media profiles. Choose which social media channels you want to get content from and select the posts you want to display using advanced moderation features.
With the Walls.io Direct Posts feature, you can also collect content beyond social media, by allowing attendees to upload image and text messages directly on your social media wall. This is great for internal or private events.

“Our goal was to increase real-time engagement with the 17,000+ people in attendance at GearFest. The social wall was a huge success. People seemed to really enjoy it and watched it frequently to see their posts being displayed. It definitely added to the excitement and made people more engaged during the day. We’re hoping that it will help spark interest for future events as well.”
Heather Herron, VP of Corporate Communication, Sweetwater
“Walls.io helps us to really bring our social media and event-specific hashtags to life at our live events. It is the perfect tool for curating and amplifying the best posts from our attendees, and a great way to encourage attendees to post more when they see their content appearing on the big screen. Attendees consistently give us very positive feedback on the experience, coming up to our social team to ask for more information on this magical tool that saw their post leap out of their phone and into reality.”
Nicholas Jones, Social Media Manager, United Way Greater Toronto
“Social media helps us raise excitement for our events and to engage students and community members in a positive way. We display our Walls.io social media wall at SUNY’s Got Your Back assembly events and conferences. Students and community members post photos and messages which are then rotated on the screens. This helps our attendees engage individually and collectively with the program in real-time.”
