We had the privilege of attending the inaugural PBPI Academy in New Orleans, LA. For those of you that don’t know PBPI stands for Photo Booth Professional International. When the Academy was first announced we jumped at the chance to attend because we are always excited about learning from industry professionals and who can resist the food and fun in New Orleans???
PBPI Academy did not disappoint. The most important element for us is education in the photo booth industry. We have thee best booths on the market but it does us no good if we do not know how to maximize their capabilities! We were able to receive specific, hands on training from the creators of our photo booth software! There were no sales pitches, just quality in depth, information! We also learned from top performing photo booth professionals in the areas of making a promo video, generating reviews, hiring staff, financial expansion, and more! We truly learned a wealth of information. Tech alley, is where vendors had new merchandise on display! iPad booths, tethering devices, Boomerang GIFs, mermaid backdrops, and of course props were of no shortage! We enjoyed seeing some of the new products in the market in a small friendly environment.
PBPI Academy also gave us a chance to network and hang out with some of the finest professionals in the world! After intense education all day, it was nice to paint the town with new and old friends. PBPI Academy was definitely worth the financial investment. Next up…The Booth Summit hosted by Photo Booth Supply Co, in Huntington Beach, CA!!!!
