Why integrate social media in your virtual event

Benefit of using social media walls for virtual events #1

Engage big and small audiences during your event

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.

Benefit of using social media walls for virtual events #2

Enhance your virtual event's setup in minutes

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.

Benefit of using social media walls for virtual events #3

boost revenue by giving sponsors extra exposure

Give your sponsors the option to buy ad space inside your social media 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. You can offer your sponsors presence on your social media wall as part of your usual sponsoring packages.

Social Media For Hybrid and Virtual Events

Learn how to engage your attendees using social media

Planning your side of a virtual event is important, but you shouldn’t forget about your audience either. Many online events severely lack engagement and interaction because the role the audience plays has not been translated well from offline to online.

This eBook will give you an overview of ways to incorporate social media before, during and after your events. When used right, these strategies can make your event more lively more interactive and, ultimately, more interesting for attendees, speakers and organisers alike.

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)

SUNY’s Got Your Back

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.

We’ve been using Walls.io for years, and it’s simply the best social hub tool out there. We implemented our social wall on a touch display at our drinking chocolate bar, and both visitors and employees are loving it.

Public Image Coordinator, Rotary Zone 24W, 2018-2021

Rotary International’s Pacific Northwest PETS, one of the largest in the world for training nearly 800 Rotary leaders, has been effectively using the Walls.io platform for three years now. This year, we noticed a substantial difference in the time of adoption by our attendees. As soon as we fired the wall up in the ballroom, the posts and photos started pouring in! All of our vendors were so thrilled that they have all signed up already for next year.
