We’re huge fans of TED and TEDx events, so we’re happy to say that more than 20 TEDx organisations have used Walls.io in the past to accompany their events — some even repeatedly, year after year.

4. S&P Global Market Intelligence internal event private social wall integration

If you’re running an internal event and want people to post to and communicate via a social wall, you may find yourself facing privacy concerns. For social media posts to show up on a social wall, they have to be posted publicly, which can breach privacy laws in some companies. It can be tough to navigate, especially in large companies with strict social media rules.

Luckily, social media isn’t the only way to get posts up on a social wall. Walls.io has recently launched a Direct Posts feature, allowing customers to set up an easy workflow to let their users post on their social wall. Direct Posts circumvent social media entirely, and it’s a completely hands-off process, too! One of the first customers to use the Direct Posts feature was S&P Global Market Intelligence. They put a social wall with Direct Posts in place for MI Content Expo, a large-scale internal event with around 5,000 attendees. The wall was integrated into a virtual event platform and combined with a Snapbar photo booth. Read the full story.

7. DMEXCO conference social media displays

It’s incredible to see how DMEXCO completely embraced social walls and found multiple ways of incorporating them smoothly into the trade fair. The team created a more interactive and engaging environment, both offline and online.

Displaying social walls on a massive display at a central point of a trade fair or event is a great idea. A prominent social wall is an eye-catcher, reminding people to share their posts using the official hashtags.
