life of the party
The event industry is growing rapidly. Last year, corporate event planners spent over a trillion dollars to promote their businesses at conferences and events in the United States. In fact, there were 1.8 million corporate meetings and events in 2015, according to a PriceWaterhouse Coopers' study. One of the most coveted items for event planners were modern photo booths connected to social media, email and text that magnify the impact of every photo with valuable branding and word-of-mouth marketing.Today's photo booths provide near limitless opportunities for customization and connection, but there's a dearth of photo booth companies in many markets across the country. IBISWorld’s Party & Event Planners says, “There are no companies with a dominant market share in this industry.” That means intrepid entrepreneurs have an opportunity to tap into a growing market. Carpe Selfie! Growth, lack of competition and low cost of entry make a photo booth a great investment for outgoing people ready to make people smile at fun events. Owners of photo booth companies become part of the meetings economy. Corporations and meeting planners want to leverage photo booths to promote and advertise at their events as well as lure customers to their booths at crowded conventions.
Companies love using modern photo booths for the ability to customize images and backdrops with their logos, products and beyond. Connection to the internet means potential customers and influencers are posting images to Twitter and Facebook in real time as well as sharing photos via text and email. Further, top-of-the-line photo booths collect email and phone data for re-marketing to interested consumers.
Depending on the local market, photo booth companies charge $250-500 per hour for photo booth rental. Plus most events last over eight hours a day for multiple days.
More than corporate events, the wedding and party industry is growing, too. There were 2.3 million weddings in the United States last year with over $4 billion spent on those weddings.
