One Young World organizes annual Summits where the most valuable young talent from global and national companies, NGOs, universities and other forward-thinking organisations are joined by world leaders.  At the Summit, delegates debate, formulate and share innovative solutions for the pressing issues the world faces.

Speakers such as Kofi Annan (7th Secretary-General of the U.N.), Mary Robinson (Former President of Ireland), Harley Finkelstein (CEO at Shopify), Vinicio Cerezo (Former President of Guatemala), Cher (Singer & Oscar Winning Actress), just to name a few were present to lend their global stature to the delegate’s views and inspire them to create positive change.

During the 2016 Summit held in Ottawa, we provided our photo and social media kiosks to be used as networking tools for the hundreds participants present.   The delegates used our photo kiosk to take their pictures and then type their contact information on the touch screen.  This information was automatically applied to the final photo to be used as ‘photo contact cards’.

The delegates could then share their photo, complete with their contact information, with others either by giving them an actual 4×6 print or electronically by using our social media kiosk.  We have to say that this was an excellent way to help them ‘put a face to a name’ and everyone had a great time exchanging their new unique photo contact cards!

Full branding was provided which included custom screens, photo and social media kiosk custom panels, custom graphics applied to the photos (electronic and print), signage as well as programmed messaging on social media and email.  Needless to say, the One Young World brand and the sponsor was highly visible during those 4 days!

Dress up for a good cause!  The Loft, in partnership with the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation, presented the 2nd Annual Loft Gala on April 30th, 2016 at The Hilton Lac Leamy.  The Loft Gala has quickly established itself as one of the most prestigious annual events in the National Capital Region and is a distinguished celebration of fashion, art, culture and live music.

For the second year in a row, we were on site with our photo booth, social media kiosks as well as with our Hashtag Station.  To help increase the ‘Wow!’ factor and give more sponsor visibility, we provided the Loft Gala with our complete branding solutions.  This meant that all of our equipment, all printed photos, all social media photo shares, all hashtag prints and more were branded for the event!

Immediately after the guests took their picture in front of the media wall, they were uploading their branded photos to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with our social media kiosks.  We even added preprogrammed hashtags and handles to the messages to ensure maximum visibility of the Loft Gala on social media.  In the 4 hours of operation that night, we generated a direct initial social media reach of over 30 000 users and over 350 photo activations!

As part of our Event Marketing Solutions package, O-Zone Productions recorded the whole event including ‘before and backstage’ scenes for an upcoming promotional video for the Loft Gala.  We can’t wait to see the final product!

The University of Ottawa (uOttawa) reached out to us to be a part of their Spring Open House on March 19th 2016.  Some of the activities that took place were an information fair, faculty guided tours, presentations, demonstrations, and of course contests like a draw to win a $1000 admission scholarship!

To help engage attendees and amplify the University’s social media presence, we provided the Hashtag Station to monitor and print branded photos tagged with #DiscoveruOttawa and #DécouvrezuOttawa. As guests used their own devices to take photos and tagged them on Instagram and Twitter they were automatically eligible to win prizes and also they got to take home some unique branded photo keepsakes because we printed their pictures!  Those who didn’t have a smartphone could use our photo booth and upload their photos to Instagram or Twitter with our social media kiosk!

This was a great way to engage guests and get them to talk about the University on social media.  We are extremely happy that we were able to help them in their campaign and we hope to be part of it again next year!

In preparation for prom 2016 and just in time for the dress hunt, Hudson’s Bay, Canada’s iconic department store launched their prom collections for millennial girls.  In celebration of this launch, they hosted Prep for Prom at 23 locations nationally on March 5, 2016.  There was a prom fashion show modelled by local high school students, cosmetic outposts by MAC, DJ’s playing the best tracks, custom corsages with local florists created on site and of course our photo booth!

To help Hudson’s Bay engage and encourage social conversation we provided our social media kiosk which also complimented the photo booth entertainment.  With our kiosk on site, guests shared their digital photos to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Email.  Besides the digital copy that was shared, fans left with a branded takeaway to remember their time at the event.

Twitter and Instagram were also programmed to automatically add #HBpromsquad and @hudsonsbay to each activation. This gave Hudson’s Bay added visibility on social media and also provided them with an opportunity to directly interact with their guests.

The initial social media reach was close to 10 000 in less than two hours and of course as people keep sharing, liking and commenting on the posts, this number will continue to increase substantially.

We had a great time at Prep for Prom and hope to be part of the event again next year!

Photo booths at weddings have gained remarkable popularity in the last 5 years or so and they have now become a must!  If you are planning a wedding and are wondering if a photo booth at your reception is a good idea, then read below…

Entertainment
Your guests, young or old, will love it!  We always have a line up to get into our booth and when guests come out they are always cracking up laughing; it’s so addictive that they come back again and again!Having a few activities besides dancing at your reception is a good way to make sure all your guests have fun.  Sometimes people just want a break from the dancing – and the loud music – and the photo booth provides a nice escape.  It’s also a good alternative for people to gather, socialize and enjoy the evening.
Read one of our Facebook reviews talking about this “They got all the guests involved, young and old, and were so much fun!”.

Wedding keepsake
A lot of guests will appreciate having a photo of themselves with their family, their friends, their kids, or their date.  Why give the traditional expensive fine chocolates when your guests can get a fun photo as a constant reminder of how awesome your wedding was.  Nobody will remember your fine chocolates but they will remember the fun they had in the photo booth!

Share the love
Not only will your guests receive a printed copy of the fun pictures, we can also add a social media twist to your reception!  Guests can upload their pictures to your very own Facebook album and/or post to their own Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or email! This helps carry on the fun for weeks after the big day as friends and family tag, comment and copy their pictures.We will also create a free online gallery where you and your guests will be able to share, download or purchase the pictures.
