According to this insightful infographic, 96% of Americans shop online, yet 65% of the buying takes place in stores. This means that overall, most purchases are still happening offline. While these stats may sound promising for those business owners who are running a retail space over the holidays, it doesn't always mean that you can rest assured that your potential buyers are going to come to you.
According to a recent survey, 93% of company managers are planning on hosting a holiday office party this year, and while 66% of those managers say that showing up at the party is expected, many employees will end up being no-shows.
Event sponsorship can be a tough sell. As an event organizer, you need the revenue generated through partnering with event sponsors, and event sponsors need your event to connect with a new audience and increase brand awareness for their business.
We're learning that TapSnap and the gaming industry go together like Mario and Luigi.
At TapSnap, we participate in a wide range of events - over 10,000 events per year! From intimate weddings with the bride, groom, and their closest friends and family, to large multi-day corporate events with hundreds, or even thousands of guests in attendance. Big or small, we've seen them all.

One event type that is particularly rewarding for us, are those events that are not only fun, but that give back to an important cause.
At the end of July, Tammy Lonergan of TapSnap 1188, had the pleasure of bringing the TapSnap photo booth experience to the annual Jeffrey Osborne Celebrity Classic event - a multi-day event hosted by and held at the Foxwoods Resort Casino located in Mashantucket, CT, with a focus on raising funds for non-profit organizations that provide music and the arts to children and their families, and those organizations that provide a safe-haven for families in need.
We asked Tammy of TapSnap 1188 to give us the inside scoop on how the event went down.
It may be the age of "everything digital", but there's something special about those tangible items, too! Snapping photos on your Smartphone is fun, but how often do you actually print those photos? Instead, they often sit on your computer, and eventually get deleted.
While some of your coworkers are off enjoying time on a lake, or fun-filled vacations in far-off destinations, you're stuck in the office, trying to keep your team (and yourself) feeling motivated and engaged as you drudge through the long summer months, stuck behind your desks.
Serving Indianapolis and Marion County, Anne Wessel of TapSnap 1184 decided to think outside the box for her client's corporate event, and the personalized photo booth experience was a huge hit!
Spring is here and it's time to get social! Get your team out from behind their desks, and boost their spirits with a spring mingle, or strengthen your relationships with existing and potential clients by inviting them to a social event where you can network, have fun, and talk shop in a relaxed atmosphere.
For the past five years, TapSnap Vancouver has partnered with the Canucks Autism Network to provide on-site photo booths at their family events, creating a fun yet comfortable environment for families who are touched by autism and capturing the memories from the event, while driving awareness for an important initiative.
"The Canucks Autism Network strives to foster awareness and understanding of autism to create more inclusive environments where individuals and families living with autism can feel understood, accepted, and supported in a range of community activities and spaces."
Providing added value to their events, and working closely with their marketing team to ensure a seamless experience for both their staff, and the families who participate in their events, TapSnap creates awareness for the Canucks Autism Network through easy social sharing capabilities, customized branded elements, and unlimited photo prints that can be taken home by the event guests as special keepsakes.
In our latest behind-the-scenes video, watch how TapSnap was able to help create awareness for the Canucks Autism Network through a recent family event:
The Canucks Autism Network sees great value in partnering with TapSnap, and hopes to continue to do so for future events!
'It's really important for us to to continue to bring education and awareness across the province, and through collaboration and partners like TapSnap, families truly understand that we're in this together, that it takes a village to really do what we're doing here today.
