How long have you been in business? 3 years
What is your favourite booth? Though we own and have tried several booths, Mobi Booth Aura is the one we most love using. We love it because of its size, flexibility and easy customization!
What is your favorite software? We like Snappic because of its incredibly user-friendly UI, background removal, facial recognition technology, customizable themes, filters, effects, social sharing, and collaboration for both customers downloads and clients results.
Tell us about the best event you ever did? Our favorite event was a large wedding, which presented a variety of obstacles in terms of setup, but we were fortunate to have enough room to get everything looking beautiful. We had cold sparklers, Dancing on the Clouds, the Mirror Booth & 360. The wonderful thing was how well-received and enthusiastic the guest were; we loved it and so did the clients!
