Chicago is such an iconic city perfectly situated between America's coasts which makes it an ideal location for conventions, trade shows, and corporate meetings. This past year we have had all kinds of new and interesting businesses looking to use a Fotio photo booth to capture and impress event attendees at various events around Chicago. Most recently NeoCon was in town (the largest architecture and design expo which takes place at Merchandise Mart). We worked with Humanscale for their NeoCon after party at Moe's Cantina in River North. They wanted an open air photo booth which could capture guests posing on their elegantly designed Ballo stools. They also wanted the photos to be branded so we included a watermark on the online gallery so guests would remember who sponsored the fun photo booth!
Another recent event in town was the Microsoft Ingite 2015 Convention which took place at the McCormick Place Convention Center. We were hired to cover the photo booth for the Microsoft Surface party at Headquarters Beercade River North. HQ Beercade is a fun and interactive event space with all the wild and crazy video games and craft beer you can imagine. This is a perfect non-traditional corporate gathering space close to downtown Chicago!
Another Microsoft Ignite event we covered was for the Krewe Meet N Greet 2015 which took place at Kaiser Tiger. We used the ornate wall paper at the venue which looked amazing in the photos! Kaiser Tiger is a fun West Loop venue which specializes in bacon and beer.
We also had the opportunity to work with Dell & Intel for the HIMMS15 conference at McCormick Place. They wanted a corporate sponsored open-air photo booth with watermarks that would fit in with the festive Latin fusion decor at their West Loop event space Carnivale. Carnivale is beautifully decorated and extremely spacious - it's address is 702 W. Fulton Market.
Another HIMMS15 event we covered was for IMO which took place at the Chicago Club on 81 E. Van Buren St. The Clients wanted to use a step and repeat backdrop to brand the photo booth photos which turned out really well in black and white!
