If you’re a conference organizer or a public speaker, you might be wondering how you can tap into the social media chatter swirling around your event or presentation. While there are various creative solutions, social media walls are a fun and easy way to bring social media conversations into the real world, in real time.

Conference organizers can set up displays throughout the event to encourage attendees to participate in the digital experience. The social media wall will likely spark social media interactions among attendees, increase digital exposure for the conference, as well as increase the number of people who follow the conference on social media.

In addition, presenters can consider displaying comments on a real-time social media wall before and after their presentations. As a creative alternative to the traditional Q&A format, presenters can respond to the social media comments during and after their presentation. 

If a social media display seems like a valuable addition to your presentation or conference, check out the social media display options listed below. If you test any of the listed options, we would love to hear about your experience. Tell us your story by tweeting us at: @Ethos3.
