The key to a successful event is to focus on engagement, and creating engaging experiences usually requires the right tools. The following list will give you an overview of the most modern event engagement tools and ways to implement them at your event. 

The Sketch Effect

The Sketch Effect helps you get the attention of your attendees with Virtual Graphic Recording. This visual event engagement tool is highly effective. Not only will viewers appreciate the art in front of them, but they will understand the topic even better. Check out their website to learn about different use cases and examples.

Walls.io 

Walls.io is an engagement tool that allows you to collect content posted by attendees and speakers using your event’s hashtag. You can display the content on screens at the venue or embed it on your website or virtual event platform. Seeing attendees’ messages pop up on the screen in real-time keeps them engaged and motivates them to keep posting.

If your event is private, a Walls.io social wall will help you connect with attendees by letting them upload content directly to the wall with the Direct Posts feature. The event wall acts as a social hub and encourages interaction between attendees, speakers, and sponsors.

Wonder

Wonder is a virtual event platform that focuses on providing energizing experiences. The tool helps people create spaces that always feel personal, no matter how many people join. A place that’s completely effortless to connect and interact. Attendees using the platform will be able to move around freely as bubbles, and each time they run into another attendee, a conversation prompt is given to boost interaction. 

Try Wonder if you’re looking to host a virtual event that makes room for organic conversation. You’ll never look at online event planning the same.

Virtual Selfie Booth + Walls.io

Social walls and virtual photo booths are two of the most significant engagement drivers for virtual events because people enjoy creating and sharing content. So why not combine both tools to get an ultimate interactive solution? 

Creating custom photo content and displaying it on a social wall fosters community and helps speakers and sponsors connect with the audience. Moreover, by showing selfies from attendees, you help your speakers fight the feeling that they’re talking in a vacuum. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.
