Promote your event, 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. It enables you to curate the content and display it on a screen, or embed it on your event website or live stream.
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.

After the event is over, a social wall is a great way for everyone to look back. Use the tail end of one event to start promoting the next one. Get current participants to sign up for the following event as soon as possible by keeping them engaged with what’s going on. An embedded social wall on your event page will give visitors a first impression of your event and convince them to buy a ticket for the next one.
