The social wall tool trusted by the world's leading brands

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

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.
