There are exhibitions for just about everything these days, this week in Melbourne there was a photobooth expo called Boothcon held in Caroline Springs where all the photobooth companies in Melbourne and Australia could attend and see what new products and technology were out there. No only did Australian photobooth companies attend Boothcon but Melbourne DJs, printing companies, photographers and people who were interested in starting their own photobooth business attended to get some insight into the industry.
It is incredible how much has change in the photobooth industry, from setting big bulky photobooth machines at weddings to now running everything from an ipad with no power supply needed. The team at Melbourne Dj hire saw new possibilities where we could implement these new inventions into the events we work at.
Boothcon was split into 2 days, the first day was jam packed with seminars from industry leaders. Some were photobooth companies who also made and sold photobooths, some were photographers who now are full time photobooth operators and some were Djs and some were web designers. The days gave new ideas for photobooth companies to enhance their business from the way they manage their business and time to tips on how to make your website stand out from your competitors.
The second day of Boothcon was the trade show and masterclasses. The trade show exhibitors ranged from photobooth machine companies to, prop companies, flower wall companies, different printer companies and new software companies. It was a great way for customers to actually physically see and touch the props and also get to look at the photobooth machines up close and get to use the machines and ask the manufactures questions. Melbourne DJ hire bought so many new and amazing props like burgers, wine bottles, ice creams and donuts which we know for sure our clients would love.
The masterclasses were in depth topics about SEO, introduction to a particular software, time management and photoshop classes. The classes were run by passionate industry professionals who had specialised in those topics and the classes were small and interactive so everyone could get a chance to ask questions if they don’t understand.
It was a great couple of days and networking and learning about other details of the business we may not usually think about and we are looking forward to seeing what these new skills will bring to our business.
