Photo Booth Rentals For Conventions And Trade Shows

The same type of photo booths you’ve seen at the mall can be used at trade shows and conventions. Many party rental companies rent photo booths for use at weddings and other social events. But a master marketer should realize that putting a free photo booth in your exhibit space is an excellent way to increase your foot traffic, spark conversation with prospects, and generate general warm fuzzy feelings about your brand. Further, if you know what to look for, a photo booth rental can actually give you much more than that. Modern photo booths take advantage of technology to spread your brand or message, and collect information from prospects. Some will even collect video testimonials about your product.

Make sure any photo booth rental is capable of putting your message on the photo strips. Better photo booths will even allow you to design a postcard with your branding all over it. In my opinion, this is the way to go. People loose the swag given out at shows. Free pens get used up or lost. T-shirts fade. But people generally keep photos forever. Imagine your message pinned to your prospect’s refrigerators for 10 years. Be sure to ask if the rental company charges extra for the design work.

Some photo booths will allow users to email themselves their photos. They simply enter their email address and the booth sends them an email with your custom message along with the images attached. Booths that do this are capable of storing the user’s email addresses to use for your marketing purposes later. It’s great way to fill your lead list. Since you’re giving them something for free, there’s no ill will about collecting the email address and using it. Just make sure you use a professional email service like Constant Contact to allow users to un-subscribe if they wish.

The most advanced booths allow users post their photos to their Facebook accounts right from the booth. If you are advertising at a trade show, imagine having your message show up in the Facebook news feeds of professionals in your industry. People almost always have colleagues from their same industry in their Facebook friends list. If they are doing something goofy in the picture, the picture will spread even further as people hit the “Like” button.

If people at the convention have already used your product, why not collect some video testimonials about it? A video capable booth will do this for you, as long as you have someone there to coach the users through it. I recommend using specific questions to make it easier on them. For example “when was the last time you used my product?” Or “how has my product changed the way you do business?” Post the best videos to a YouTube channel, and embed them on your site. As an added bonus, having a YouTube channel associated with your brand and web site will help your search engine rankings. Google, in particular, loves a site with rich content like videos.

Make the most of your photo booth rental by having a strategy. People will be laughing and having a great time in your exhibit space. Capitalize on the jovial atmosphere created by the booth. Engage prospects in small talk as you usher them in and out of the booth, and let that lead into your sales pitch. Most of all, have fun! If you’re having fun with it, your prospects will loosen up too.

Bounce House Rentals

Visit any kids’ birthday party and you’ll see the newest fashion in birthday party entertainment; the fun, inflatable bounce house which is popular as well as party jumper, moonwalk, water slide or inflatable moon bounce. Fairly cheap to rent and filled with a constant stream of cold air, these sewn vinyl party supplies come in bright colors and fun shapes (like castles, houses, slides) and keep kids jumping and entertained for hours. Bounce House rentals are huge hit with both kids and grownups. Not only do they keep children occupied, they also give the parents a needed break and help them socialize with guests. Bounce house rentals and bouncy house birthday parties for children are generally held in backyards, front yards, but depending on the season and the area, they can even be held in local parks, recreations or indoors.

Perhaps the key factor when renting a bouncy house or other inflatable such as water slides, party jumpers, moon bounces or jump and slide combos is safety. A good party rental company will have insurance, and this is particularly important if kids will be using the bounce house. Most city parks in Los Angeles and all over USA also consent that the party requires insurance if they are to set up in a community area. If possible, go and see the bounce house jumper before hand, just to be sure it is safe. You may also want to check and be sure it is clean, as microorganisms can pose just as great a danger as substantial injury. Although there are many reputable companies involved in this business, there are also those who do not appropriately take care of the party supplies.

For many customers, bounce house rental rates are the biggest concern. While you want to make sure you don’t pay more than you have to, be sure you do not sacrifice quality or the safety of your kids. Most moon bounce party rental companies have a set rate for the entire event, including set-up and break-down. Try to find some information on the company you are considering renting from. Check the Internet, ask friends and family, and look at local business reviews. A little bit of research can help you a lot. Remember just because jumpers cost more or less than their competitor, it doesn’t mean they are better. Do some shopping around; try to find a price that you can afford. For a 13′ by 13′ sized Bouncy House, it should cost around $95 US Dollars for 8 hours, and that should include delivery setup and break-down. Also be sure you try to rent one with a front ramp, the last thing adults are going to want to be doing are lifting kids in and out of the jumper all day long.

Before you rent a Bounce House you need to find out what your requirements are. Take into consideration how many kids are invited, what their ages are, if any grown up will want to join the fun jump, etc. If there are going to be small kids or babies visiting, it may be worth renting a small Jumper House as well, to prevent possible injuries with older kids inside the moon bounce. Also evaluate how much space is available on the area, as Bounce Houses can be pretty big. All in all, bounce house rentals are a great way to add fun to any occasion.
