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.

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.

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)

WHAT brands love using social walls for events

Steve chisik

Heather Herron

VP of Corporate Communication, Sweetwater

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.

We were so happy to find the features Walls.io offered. It allowed us to create a virtual audience so that anyone watching could cheer on teammates and celebrate wins at home. It kept engagement up on social and also helped spread the word about our events. People were excited to see themselves on the wall!
