Photo Booth At Events: Yay or Nay?
You may have seen it at some of the events that you attended and now you are wondering, “Should I have a photo booth at my event?”
If you want your guests to have fun and remember your event then the answer is a resouding “Yes!”, you should rent a photo booth service at your coming event. These past few months I went to two events with photo booth and it seems obvious that attendees had fun posing with the props provided while taking pictures with their colleagues. A lot of people might think that photo booths are only for social events like weddings, birthdays and the likes but personally I think having them at more ‘serious’ events like conferences or seminars that are targeted for professionals will also work as it injects a bit of fun into a rigid setting and is a good way for people to relax and break the ice. It is also a good way to get people talking about your event. In New York, even retail stores are starting to have them in their bid to revive brick-and-mortar stores to their former glory. Retailers recognized that it is important to let their customers have fun while shopping at their stores.
So what are the things that you need to consider before renting such service?
- Budget: Each photo booth service charges differently based on photo quality and also duration of the event. Make sure that you do a survey on the average cost and factor it in the event budget during event planning.
- Location: Make sure the location of your event is suitable to set up a photo booth. They will always require a power source, usually a standard wall outlet so make sure one is available. Space is also a concern as they are quite huge and most service usually includes backdrop design so keep that in mind when you are picking a space to set up your photo booth. Better yet, ask the service provider to recommend the best space for your booth.
