Sometimes we get the opportunity to try something a little different. At the end of February I attended a conference with my wife. For the past two years, I’ve offered on-site headshots to attendees. This year, the conference reached out and wanted to help us market this opportunity to their attendees. We offered mini sessions (20 minutes) at times that did not conflict with the conference schedule. We booked a conference suite, basically the front half of our room as actually a board room. Opened up the space, setup our gear and got to work.
By the end of the conference, we had the opportunity to capture headshots for 17 clients over a 3 day period. We had a blast, got to meet some interesting people and have some ideas on how this could expand this offering to other events. We loved working at the conference and got lots of great feedback regarding the opportunity to get this done while at the conference.
