Make your hybrid events more interactive by displaying attendees’ social media posts both online and on-site.
“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.”

“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.”
