BOOTH MASTERMIND LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS 2023
Our industry has come a very long way over the last 2 decades, I don’t think I have ever worked in an industry which is so supportive to industry peers, works collectively and comes together to make the entire industry better, quite like the photo booth industry.
And there is so many people who have been at the foundations to creating this open, transparent and helpful path for the people coming up below them… We wanted recognise them!
