Travel and Adventure Series Core Client

After half of the 2020 Travel and Adventure Show series was cancelled due to COVID-19, plans are underway for 2021 AND 2022.  Those plans will include the infamous US Event Photos experiential green screen photo booth.  We have made a few tweaks to the experience, taking DELTA variant into consideration.

For the 2021 Dallas, Atlanta, and Bay Area shows, we are eliminating all on-location, physical props.  Instead, we are substituting in “virtual props” to provide an interactive, reduced-touchpoint photo experience.  Eliminating props also helps our photographers and assistants maintain recommended social distances.

In addition, we have developed a QR Code Photo Retrieval system, eliminating the need to email or text message photos.  Again, with the goal of reducing touchpoints, this process allows participants to digitally access their photos — in real time — simply by scanning a QR Code on their personal device and typing in their name.  In fact, we’ve integrated the system into the Travel and Adventure Shows’ Connected Marketplace.  Participant’s flash their barcode from their show ticket, which we scan at the beginning of the photo experience.  Scanning permits us to tag their photo with their name for instant retrieval — and gives the booth sponsor the ability to seamlessly follow up with participants through the Connected Marketplace.

With the 2022 Travel and Adventure Show Schedule announced — and with US Event Photos returning to provide this experiential marketing photo powerhouse — we will determine which shows continue with virtual props and the QR system moving forward, based on both show management and recommended CDC guidelines.

Yamaha
Bassmasters 2021

2020 will forever be known as the Year of the Pandemic.  After Bassmasters, 2020, all of our in-person, live events were cancelled.  In 2020, we saw months where staying six feet apart was the new staying together.  Face masks became the go-to fashion accessory.  Everyone caught up on their favorite television shows, binge watching endless hours.  There were no in-person live events.  Virtual photo booths replaced our traditional green screen photo experiences.   Mike started a new, local podcast.

It was March, 2020 when photographer and US Event Owner Mike Gatty returned from  the Bassmaster Classic.  He’d just completed his assignment for Yamaha, an experiential photo marketing booth at the world’s largest bass fishing contest in Birmingham.  It was the fifth time Mike had provided the green screen photo booth for Yamaha.  Complete with a 12′ dock and two replicas of the world record largemouth bass, the photo set lets Mike reproduce the cover of Bassmaster Magazine. Participants, with a little Yamaha branding, are featured front and center with their “record catch”.  When Mike’s flight landed, as he was collecting the luggage from the belt, he glanced up at the news.  The world was shutting down.  It would remain shut.

Now it’s 2021, and the Bassmaster Classic was as busy as ever in Fort Worth, TX .   In fact, record crowds swarmed the Yamaha experiential photo booth.  Clearly, the world is reopening.

Carpet One In-Person Convention Held in Denver

National Event Photography

For more than 7 years, US Event Photos has been the convention photographers for CCA Global.  When the Covid-19 Pandemic hit in Spring of 2020, their Summer Convention was postponed, and postponed again.  Carpet One hosts two conventions a year: Winter and Summer, in different cities nationwide.  When the in-person convention still couldn’t happen last fall, it was cancelled.  Then the Winter, 2021 convention was cancelled.  It seemed we’d never return to events.

But in person events were around the corner.  And through all the postponements and cancellations, we worked with Carpet One to be ready for their convention photography needs when they were able to safely return to in-person events.  Now that vaccinations are happening nationwide, in-person corporate events are being scheduled — though there are still masking requirements, and in some cases, vaccination requirements due to the Delta Variant.

We resumed our convention photography schedule with Carpet One; and to say people were happy for an in-person convention would be a huge understatement.

They.  Were.  Ecstatic!
