Over these past few years, the biggest trend for celebrity parties, corporate events and exhibitions have been party photo booths, which take instant photos much like a regular photo booth. These can be a fantastic marketing tool, especially at promotional events as they are a fun form of interactive entertainment that drums up excitement and gets people flocking to your stand, so you can potentially gain lots of new clients and business connections.
One of the many positive points about photo booths is the variety and flexibility that you get with them, both with their shape and design as a whole to their customization and add-ons, such as props and accessories. Megabooth, which is among the UK’s top photo booth hire companies and is a favorite with celebrities and blue chip companies alike, have a large range of photo booths that they can customize to fit any event. They have recently released the photo pod, which allows you to instantly upload your photos to Facebook, Twitter or email.
For weddings and other celebratory events, such as anniversaries and milestone birthdays, one of the most popular styles of photo booth to use are those that have a white board attached to them. This has been seen at several celebrity weddings recently and means that the photo booth doubles as a guest book, so people can leave their well wishes. The instant photos can be used as party favours and you could ask each guest to leave one of their photos so that you can build up a photo collage of your special event.
Instead of an enclosed booth, you can also get photo walls; these are fun backgrounds that you can pose against or with your head through holes, like the old fashioned ‘head in the wall’ stands that can be found on seaside piers. This kind of photo booth has been seen at awards shows for one of the UK’s largest woman’s magazines as you can get a lot of guests posing together at once and, as they are open, you can take your own photos with your camera phone at the same time.
Classic cars and black cab taxis modified into photo booths are always popular because they are so eye-catching and versatile. These are great for corporate events, such as exhibitions and shows where you will be making an appearance as they can be customized with your company’s logo and they get the crowd flocking to have a go. Having something fun at your stand means lots of visual positive reinforcement; a really effective marketing tool! As you can get various styles of vehicle, including VW Beetles and classic minis, these can really fit well into the theme of a vintage wedding or event. Some hire companies can even transform your photo booth into a karaoke booth, so you and your guests can have double the fun.
There are so many styles and variations of photo booth out there that you are bound to see at least one this year at an event or celebration.
