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.

Photo Novelties Bring A Lasting Impression To Your Event

AM Green Screen Booth

Event after event we experience first-hand that people love walking away with souvenirs of their experiences. Whether they’re attending a corporate event, holiday party, trade show, bar mitzvah or other social event, it’s fun to have a token to remember it by that leaves a lasting impression…right?!

So what’s more lasting than a real photo? Photo novelty games are a great way to bring people together at an event and end it with the perfect photo take-away. In the digital and ‘selfie crazed’ world we live in, with smartphone cameras in every hand, we find that event attendees still find it cool and different to have an actual printed photo, or item with their photo. Amusement Masters has a wide variety of novelty game ideas that can turn into unique photo souvenirs for all types of special events!

FlipBook Turns A Photo Op Into A Lasting Gift
One of our favorite novelty photo games is the Photo Flipbook. This is a small printed photo book that each attendee can take with them. Guests step into the photo booth, and each film takes a seven second video, which is then turned into the flip book that’s printed immediately. You can even include a custom cover for it that matches your event’s theme. For days, months and even years after the event, people love to flip through these tiny photo books again and again.

Social Event Excitement That Can’t Be Beat
One of the most fun novelty photos opportunities to use at a social event is to bring in a photo area with a large prop, like our inflatable Big Chair. This is an adorable and fun way to mark the occasion. People love to hop up in the big chair for repeated photo ops – by themselves, with a bestie, even in groups! Each guest receives a 5×7 photo to take with them that can be branded to fit the occasion. Great for birthdays, weddings, and even anniversary parties. Commemorate the event on each photo by adding the name and date of the event.

Corporate Branding For The Ultimate Impression
Using a photo novelty game at a corporate event gives you the perfect opportunity to have a take-away item centered around your unique branding – making it a subtle but effective way to advertise. One of the most fun ways to do this is by adding a Green Screen Photo Booth to your event – where we can project any kind of background you want onto it. The photo is then printed with your company’s branding and the event attendee leaves the party with a fun marketing piece that will keep your brand first and foremost on their mind each time they revisit that item.
