At this very minute, there thousands of events happening all over the U.S. that would benefit from TapSnap's ability to bring people closer together with fun, interactive phototainment. This revolutionary new photo booth is hitting the market as the event planning and wedding sectors are poised for growth. Brides and event planners are searching for new, exciting ways to entertain and impress guests. TapSnap is their ideal event entertainment solution.

Weddings are worth $49 billion

Weddings are a $49 billion industry in the United States, according to the 2011 IBISWorld Wedding Services market research report. The opportunities for TapSnap are tremendous, and they're growing. Over the next four years revenue from the wedding services industry is projected to grow to $54.3 billion, according to IBISWorld.
2.1 million weddings in the U.S. each year. 5,753 weddings a day!
  Many brides spare no expense. They want their wedding to be perfect. It is, after all, a once-in-a-lifetime event. Couples spend an average $27,000 on their weddings, according to the 2011 Real Weddings Survey of 18,000 brides by TheKnot.com and WeddingChannel.com. The Survey also found that:
  • Wedding budgets are on the rise in 2011 for the first time since 2008
  • Couples spend an average $2,299 on wedding photography
Custom guest entertainment, such as photo booths and comedians, is an increasingly popular trend. Some 22% of brides surveyed are incorporating special entertainment into their weddings. They want to stun and surprise their guests with exceptional experiences like TapSnap. The rapid growth of social networking sites has also been a windfall for wedding photography. The widespread ability to share photos and videos online, and the desire to impress one's friends, means the photography segment of the wedding services market has grown rapidly from 2006, according to IBISWorld. Their report notes that social media brings out the competitive nature of brides driven to impress family and friends with their wedding photos. That has driven the cost of services higher. People want unique and memorable wedding photos, and they are willing to pay more for them. That's great news for TapSnap. Sources:  

Strong growth predicted for the event planning sector

Great opportunities for TapSnap are waiting in the event planning industry and convention sector. Over 1.8 million meetings and conventions take place every year in the U.S., according to a PricewaterhouseCoopers report, the Economic Significance of Meetings to the U.S. Economy. Meetings and conventions spending worth $109 billion a year Spending on related goods and services is worth $31 billion alone. For the first time since 2007 and the recession, revenue from events and parties is expected to grow 2.5% in 2012, according to the IBISWorld Party and Event Planning Market research report. Strong growth predicted over next five years The industry is poised for a period of positive growth, with IBISWorld predicting the event planning sector will "bounce back strongly" from the recession over the next five years, outpacing growth of the GDP. Employment of meeting, convention, and event planners is expected to surge 44 percent from 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labour Statistics. All these events and conventions are happening every day in a town or city near you. This means there is tremendous potential for a TapSnap franchise that will only grow in the immediate future.

  • YouTube has more than three billion views per day

TapSnap enables event hosts and brides meet the demand for social media content about their event. The machine's ability to share pictures and photos instantly creates buzz for an event while it's still happening. Corporate logos can be included, so when guests share photos they are furthering the brand image in cyberspace. TapSnap is an easy way for event planners to transform their event into social media capital, while providing a unique and fun experience for their guests. And best of all, every time someone somewhere uses TapSnap at an event, our social media presence grows.
