SpotMyPhotos: Think Outside the Booth

At many events, whether corporate or personal, professional photography is the best way to save and share memories. But searching through thousands of photos online can be a difficult task, which means your event attendees may skip past it entirely. That’s why we’ve added a better way for you to share event photos with attendees: SpotMyPhotos.

SpotMyPhotos is an automated private photo delivery service that simplifies event photography in four ways: automation, personalization, delivery, and analytics. Since its launch, more than 750,000 photos have been shared using SpotMyPhotos at 2,600+ events.

With its 99.9% spotting accuracy and 13-second delivery time, SpotMyPhotos with Amusement Masters is a fast, accurate way to share your photos with those who want them the most.

Automation

At the beginning of the event, each attendee registers with the Amusement Masters’ photographer, indicating where they want their photos to go. After the event, SpotMyPhotos high-tech proprietary cloud “spotting” engine will send each attendee the images they are in—meaning no scrolling or searching required.

Personalization

Organizers have the ability to create custom settings that generate personalized galleries centered around their own branding. Clients hosting the party can add overlays to customize the look and feel of each image, which can give them more leverage and outreach when attendees download and share photos online.

Hands-Free Delivery

SpotMyPhotos requires nothing more than a traditional photographer and a cell phone—simplifying the traditional photo booth option. Attendees receive photos in as little as 13 seconds through text, or they can print from their phone and pick up with onsite printing within 20 seconds.

Analytics

Unlike a traditional photo booth or hired photographer, SpotMyPhotos gives you access to Photo Reach Analytics that can give you real-time insights on who is utilizing and sharing your photos. This gives you better and more in-depth understandings of your photography and event ROI.AM Spot My Photo Collage

Create Better Engagement by Adding Virtual Reality To Your Event’s Entertainment

Amusement Masters Virtual RealityThe use of virtual reality for event entertainment is a growing trend and it’s no wonder why. Statistics show that by the end of 2018, there will be over 170 million virtual reality users worldwide. With prices for this entertainment becoming more affordable, now is a great time to start engaging your event audiences by creating a unique brand experience.

THE WHY
Virtual reality technology immerses your audience in your brand’s world, all within a small space. No need for large presentation screens or lots of materials to pack. With limited equipment, this technology provides more impact than a flyer or brochure. Consider these survey results regarding consumer awareness and interaction with virtual reality:

• 92% of survey respondents in 2017 were familiar with the term “virtual reality.”
• 35% of respondents rated their experience with a virtual reality headset as “very exciting.”

As the virtual reality trend continues to grow, so will the statistics as more audiences engage with the technology at events.

THE HOW
You don’t have to be a multi-million corporation to incorporate virtual reality at your events. Just remember the key ingredient to Virtual Reality success is focusing on the user experience. Here are a couple of tips Amusement Masters shares with clients for getting started:

• Keep the Virtual Reality experience short at 2 minutes or less.
• Make the experience easy to do with simple controls.

VR Button Amusement MastersFrom playing games to experiencing destinations, virtual reality is changing the way audiences participate in events. As the technology continues to evolve, more opportunities will become available for brands to develop unique experiences. Virtual reality is fun, exciting, and an available marketing tool no matter the size of your company. If you’re ready to jump into using virtual reality to engage your audiences, contact us. With the latest in virtual reality equipment, Amusement Masters’ professional staff stands ready to help you get started!

Casino-Style Activities For Your Event

There is something uniquely glamorous about going to a casino. The excitement of watching the dice tumble, or that moment knowing that the next turn of a card might be what doubles your winnings. You don’t have to go to a casino to capture that feeling, though. In fact, you can bring it to your next event by making sure you have the right activities for your guests to join.Blacklight Craps Amusement Masters

Why Turn Your Event Into A Casino Night?
Whether you’re hosting a corporate holiday event, or you’re trying to get people together for a non-profit fundraiser, it’s important to have a theme for the evening. It immediately sets the tone for how people should dress, how they should act, and the sorts of games that will be available. And when you tell your guests they should come with a Las Vegas mindset, it can get them excited for the night to come.

The other reason a casino night is a good idea is that it provides something for every guest’s tastes. From card games like poker and blackjack, to table games like roulette and craps, there’s always something to do. Even better, these games provide a simple place for attendees to socialize. While it might be awkward to make small talk just standing around a bar height table, it becomes a lot easier to do when you’re both holding cards in your hand. A game provides something to talk about, and a shared activity breaks a lot of ice.

Low Cost, High Reward
It takes less than you think to plan and bring in a casino-style event. Companies like Amusement Masters make it easy by providing game tables, inventory (chips, cards, dice, etc.) and experienced game dealers to lead activities. You can even rent larger games, such as a roulette wheel or unique variations on the games, like Black Light casino activities. Scale up with lots of games or down as your event requires – a theme that provides flexibility without losing out on the potential for attendees to enjoy themselves.

Although a secure sense of company and team loyalty is difficult to accomplish with a group of individuals, members of a tightly-knit team feel like they’re an important part of achieving a common goal.Amusement Masters Team Building 2

Increase Productivity
Once that tight-knit team is formed, the feeling of having a common purpose influences how they work together. That unity comes, in part, from the seamlessly applying lessons employees learned on team-building exercises to situations and challenges.Amusement Masters Team Building 3

The Positive Impact of Hosting a Company Family Day Event

Amusement Masters Family DayWhether it’s a carnival atmosphere with inflatables, rides and ice cream, or organized activities such as biking, archery or DIY projects, company family days can be fun events for your employees and their families to enjoy. That fun-filled time can also generate additional benefits for your organization.

Here are three benefits of hosting a company family day:

Secure Company Retention
Showing your employees that you respect and value them goes a long way toward securing their loyalty. One way to do that is to simply treat them to a company family day. Taking a little time away from the regular routine for some enjoyment can help employees recharge and become more productive. Additionally, such a special day provides employees to not only bond with their families, but to discover shared interests with colleagues and supervisors. That connection can have a great impact on employee retention.

Demonstrate Your Commitment and Appreciation
Treating your employees to a day of family fun shows them that you appreciate them and the work they do. It also demonstrates your commitment to their well-being, which can boost morale and increase productivity.

Encourage a Healthy Work-Life Balance
These days, it can be difficult for employees to effectively split their time between family and their responsibilities at work. By hosting a company family day you demonstrate your company’s support of your employees’ between work and personal lives.

Amusement Masters has a large inventory of games, rides and amusements that open the door for creating great experiences for employees at company family day events. Click here to view video of one of our favorite 2016 family day client events! Then for tons of ideas on how Amusement Masters can help to make your US family day one that employees will never forget connect with us!

The Evolution of Inflatables For Special Events

The use of inflatable structures in the special events industry has changed a lot in the last ten years. Historically, inflatable structures were great options at carnivals, block parties, birthdays, and other events that would be heavily populated with children. The classic ‘bouncy house’ is where the inflatable structure industry started, but since the introduction of the bouncy house those structures created and used have evolved. Inflatable structures are no longer just for kid’s birthday parties!Lagoon of Doom

In the last few years, inflatable structures have gotten a lot more sophisticated, and they have been getting use in many types of special events with the focus on adult users. The corporate world now brings in inflatable games, obstacles and amusements as part of team building exercises or entertainment for company retreats and picnics. For other types of events Inflatable walls and igloo structures are also commonly used. At the 2017 IMEX America conference recently in Las Vegas several large inflatable structures (igloos) were used as meeting areas throughout the conferences’s ‘Inspiration Hub.’Adrenalator

Big inflatable slides, obstacle courses, and use as structures have really changed the scope of inflatables in special events. The industry of inflatables that was once led by bounce houses has really moved from a niche, a rather large niche market of child entertainment to be fair, into more widespread usage. It is rare to go to any large event today and not see at least one inflatable structure at it. An item that used to be used only for kids has now become the staple of any good event. The numerous possibilities that inflatables can be used for is a major reason why they are so popular. Also, they are just plain fun!

4 Hot Amusements & Novelties For Your 2017 Holiday Company Party

It’s time for your company to start planning for the holiday party. But it’s not fun to do the same things year after year or to do what everyone else is doing. So, this year, stand out by considering these four Amusement Masters’ super-fun entertainment options!

PHOTO BOOTHS & SELFIE STATIONS
What better way to remember your time at your office party than with a photo booth or selfie station, right? With our Photo Booths you can go into a booth and take photos with friends and coworkers. Have us add some props, and you really and the fun and silly. Then print your photos out and take them home…extending the memory beyond the holidays!VIP Photo Booth

Or, add a selfie station like our DC Digital or the Instacam Station. What is a selfie station? Well, instead of going inside a photo booth and having to print off your photos, a selfie station is just a free-standing station. Our selfie stations allow party guests to choose from amazing backdrops, green screen effects, and filters just like the apps on your phone. Plus, you can send these photos instantly to your phone or social media accounts!DC Digital

GOURMET COTTON CANDY
Another fun idea is to add a cotton candy booth to your party activities and dessert stations. But not just any cotton candy…Amusement Masters Gourmet Cotton Candy! A sugary treat that’s perfect for all ages – our cotton candy is made in a wide variety of flavors (some very unique) and each made from air-spun organic evaporated cane juice, using only 100% all-natural flavors and colors. Here are a couple of great ideas to customize and make this more of an ‘adult’ station:

Add LED lights! We can really bring your cotton candy offerings to life by adding LED-filled handles. This is great when you want to add a night-club feel or simply light up the party.

Mix in cotton candy into some cocktails! Mixing champagne with your cotton candy is a deliciously sweet addition to any adult cotton candy booth.Cotton-Candy GLO STICKS (1)

CASINO
Keep your party entertaining by bringing the casino to the office. Bring in craps table, black jack, poker, Texas hold ‘em, roulette or other must-play casino games. You can rent these tables from various companies, or just grab some tables and set them up yourself. They are a fun and inexpensive way to make sure your guests have the time of their lives! You can even build a party theme around it, like the Roaring Twenties. Have fun with it!Casino AM 2

LED GAMES
Captivate guests and light up the evening with the glow of LED lit games. From an electric dance floor to glowing billiards or radiant ping pong, LED Games add unique entertainment to parties instead of the traditional. If you want to see your guests leave the party with a glowing smile then LIGHT UP your event!LED Dance Floor
