Aggregate content from hashtags, profiles and pages. Curate your content and display it on a social wall on your event website, embed it underneath the live-stream or show it before and after each session.

The Benefits of Using Social Walls for Virtual Events

Social media is one of the biggest engagement drivers for virtual events. Displaying social media posts shared by your attendees, speakers and sponsors on a social wall has multiple benefits.



ENHANCE YOUR PROMOTIONAL REACH
Use a social wall to promote your virtual event and create buzz. Social media helps you gain reach and connects you to your target audience. Speakers start preparing long before an event and share their progress on social media. Capture that free promotion on a social wall and use it to get people interested in your event.



CREATE A SENSE OF COMMUNITY
On a social wall, attendees can talk to each other without disturbing the live-stream in any way. They get a chance to step out of the shadows and become active participants instead of passive consumers. They can post photos and comments, which speakers get to see, making them feel less like they’re talking into a vacuum.



ENGAGE YOUR AUDIENCE
Interacting with a physically not present audience becomes much easier with a social wall. Take audience questions using hashtags which will then show up on the wall for everyone to see. Or use the wall to play ice-breaker games to help people start a conversation with the speakers and network with other attendees.



BOOST REVENUE WITH SPONSORED POSTS
Monetise your social wall by giving your sponsors the option to buy ad space on your wall. Show their ads as Sponsored Posts to give them some extra exposure. Display the social wall next to your live-stream to make sure it gets seen by lots of viewers.



ENHANCE YOUR VIRTUAL EVENTS SETUP
By combining a live-streaming tool with a social wall, you open up a way for attendees to interact with each other and with the speakers without having to install any software. A social wall is easily embedded into your virtual event set-up, doesn’t require any downloads and is completely user-friendly, no matter the tech level of your audience.



INCREASE TICKET SALES FOR THE NEXT EVENT
A social wall and hashtags allow you (and your speakers and attendees) to keep the conversation going after the event. A social wall is a great way to promote any future events you’re organising because it gives an insight into how interesting the last event was. Seeing the conversation can create demand, making it easier for you to sell tickets early on.
KNOW-HOW
Social Media in Tourism

Social media is a great addition to virtual events

Social media is a powerful channel for virtual events. 81% of virtual event organisers use social media to drive registrations. But the impact of social media is also utilised for post-event promotion. 54% of companies use social media to relive highlights after an event. The benefits of virtual events became particularly clear during the 2020 global pandemic. But, overall, 92% of respondents plan to incorporate virtual events into their event strategy even after COVID-19. (Source: Markletic, Bizzabo and Freeman XP & EMI)

Case Studies

How companies use social walls for virtual events



FIRST® AND STAR WARS: FORCE FOR CHANGE USE A SOCIAL WALL FOR ENGAGEMENT
FIRST® and Star Wars: Force for Change implemented a social media wall to interact with participants around the world during the COVID-19 lockdown when they were forced to hold tournaments online. They used the social wall to feature attendees’ work, serve as inspiration and share learnings.



A SPECIAL PLACE FOR THE SOCIAL WALL WITHIN THE VIRTUAL WORLD OF THE FIRST DIGITAL TOMORROWLAND FESTIVAL
The annual electronic dance festival Tomorrowland held its first-ever virtual festival in 2020. It created an engaging and imaginative virtual 3D environment for attendees. They could navigate a virtual island freely to “visit” various music stages, as well as a social wall set up for the event.



UNIVERSITIES TURNED COMMENCEMENT CEREMONIES INTO INTERACTIVE VIRTUAL EXPERIENCES
Colleges and universities had to move their graduation ceremonies online during the lockdown in 2020. Many used social walls to add an interactive element to the commencement live-streams for students, their families and friends.
