Rob has been involved in the entertainment industry for the last 27 years, starting as a DJ in 1987. In 1996 Rob opened up a store for DJs and has been selling the DJ Companion Book, collapsible limbo sticks and a variety of different items at DJ shows such as Mobile Beat. After being introduced to photo booths through his work for a major DJ and photo booth company as operations manager, and since starting his own photo booth companies, Green Scream Photobooths and Best Entertainment Network, Rob has learned more about photo booths in a few short years than he would have expected to learn in a lifetime. In late 2013 Rob also wrote the book “Start Your Own Photo Booth Business” which was published by Mobile Beat. By being the producer of Photo Booth Expo, Rob hopes to make his contribution to the industry.
As publisher of Mobile Beat Magazine and producer of the long-standing and highly successful Mobile Beat DJ Trade shows, publishing and internet mogul Ryan Burger brings a wealth of experience in creating the environment for a successful trade show. As President of BC Productions, Ryan also runs one of the largest and best DJ and photo booth companies in the Des Moines IA region. Ryan will be producing the show guide and will be invaluable in providing his guidance and advice towards making this show a success.
My husband and I have been thinking about starting our own Photobooth business and felt this was the perfect opportunity to see if this is truly something we want to do. We left the expo knowing we wanted to pursue this business. We not only got valuable knowledge of what it takes to be successful but we met some great people who were more then willing to give us suggestions and tips. I would absolutely recommend this expo for anyone who is thinking about starting a Photobooth business.
I just had to say how much I loved the expo. I'm new to the industry and thought with all of my research, I had a good handle on where I was headed. But this expo totally flipped me around. I came away with a ton of new ideas as well as new connections with some phenomenal people. I was really pleased with how warm and helpful people in this community are. I already can't wait until next year!
Fantastic show! Well worth the flight costs from Scotland, I really enjoyed all aspects of it.
It was great meeting like minded people from all over the world! I probably would have never met my vendors face to face if it wasn't for this conference. I'm so happy that we spent the time and money to come, we learned some cool tricks, have new friends, and more inspiration.
The speakers panel was great. Well thought out with the right mix of technical information and inspirational characters. Well worth taking the trip from Brazil up to Nevada! Will be back next year.
I went into the conference with a limited connection to the outside network of people, companies, and resources available and was blown away by all of the amazing connections I made. My future will be forever impacted by my experience at The Photo Booth Expo because of the business decisions I made after attending. I am passionate about this business and finally feel confident in applying that passion to my business in a unique and creative way.
