NORTH VANCOUVER, BC, November 14, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Introducing TapSnap, a revolutionary new photo system that is shaping the future of event entertainment, and is now available as a franchise across North America. This is the photo booth reimagined without walls or ceilings, completely open-concept and highly interactive. TapSnap seamlessly integrates a giant 42-inch multi-touch screen with social media to give event guests a "phototainment experience" they'll never forget.
Imagine a giant tablet computer made larger than life. TapSnap allows event guests to take their photos with a simple tap of a fingertip on the 42-inch multi-touch screen. Then, they can draw and add personal messages to their pictures, and share them with the world, all with the touch of a fingertip.
"Playing with TapSnap brings out the joy in people," said Scott McInnes, CEO and Founder of TapSnap, which is based in North Vancouver, Canada. "We call it the TapSnap effect. Wherever TapSnap goes - weddings, corporate events, parties - people loosen up, start laughing and soon they're having a blast. TapSnap naturally brings people closer together."
The machine's instant connectivity to social media means event guests can share pictures and videos on social media as soon as they are taken, actively encouraging guests to create a social media presence for an event while it's still happening.
TapSnap is offering franchises across North America, building on its team's 12 years of experience helping people start their own businesses. TapSnap CEO Scott McInnes also founded DVDNow Kiosks, which launched in 2006 and has grown to be the largest independently operated network of movie rental kiosks in the world, with operations in 16 countries.
"This is the time for TapSnap. Recent advances in multi-touch technology made it possible to create a larger-than-life, incredibly responsive photo system with the power to capitalize on the surging popularity of social media," said McInnes. "Social media creates an insatiable demand for unique photos to share, and TapSnap allows event organizers and social media marketers to feed that demand while giving guests an unforgettable entertainment experience."
Brad and Alison Rudover invited TapSnap to their wedding this fall in Vancouver, Canada, aiming to have "the party of the century."
Alison said, "Not everyone wants to dance, sit at their table, or pound drinks at the bar. We thought about what we could do to get the non dancers out of their chairs and really get everyone involved. TapSnap was the solution. Just about everyone made their way over to the TapSnap area and the photos are absolutely amazing. It captured candid moments of our guests just having fun. And that is exactly what we hoped for."
The newlyweds are still receiving feedback from their guests that it was the best wedding that they had ever been to.
Having your picture taken has never been this much fun. TapSnap is the next big innovation in event entertainment and franchising, bringing sophistication to the concept of the photo booth. Open-concept and instantly connected to social media, TapSnap blends a sophisticated high-tech product with an innovative franchise model, and is based in North Vancouver, Canada.
