What is an event social wall?

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.

How to create an event social wall

Collect content from hashtags, profiles, mentions and more

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.

Design and then embed or display your social wall anywhere

You can easily customize your wall’s appearance using the Walls.io Style Editor. No tech skills are needed! Change the background, text, and tile border color with just a few clicks. Your social media wall will be fully responsive and will always look great.

When you're ready to share your wall with the world, you can either embed it on an event platform or website and/or display it on digital signage. Unlike similar solutions, Walls.io offers unlimited embeds. You can also display the wall on as many screens as you like, even on multiple locations if needed.

How brands use social walls at events

Direct Posts Boost Engagement at Trade Show Booth for Delta Electronics EMEA Region

Delta Electronics EMEA Region goes to many trade shows and has been refining their booth setup. Social walls have been a part of that for a while now, but Delta saw quite a change in engagement when they started using Walls.io’s new Direct Posts feature at Hannover Messe in 2022.

Some people just don’t want to post a photo from a trade show on their social media accounts. But they were fine with posting it directly to the wall this time and enjoyed that they could see the picture appearing on the wall while they were standing there. Overall, the interaction with the wall was the biggest we’ve seen since we started using social walls.

Sweetwater’s Gearfest Engages Attendees With a Hashtag Wall

Sweetwater used a social wall to increase real-time engagement with the 17,000+ people in attendance at GearFest. They ran a contest that awarded a guitar, among other prizes, to the best photo using the hashtag #GearFest.

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.
