We were recently asked to name ways Pixster has had a positive impact on our industry. Here's what we said:
Through Pixster's endless drive to innovate the way people experience and share photos and videos at events, they have been one of the most recognizable names in the events industry for almost a decade. For nearly a decade, Pixster has helped to shape the market by scaling unique services and bringing them to the general public. In the past 12 months, Pixster has helped introduce services such as their signature Glam Booth™, which only celebrities like Kim Kardashian could once afford, into a broader market. In the past year, Pixster has also set the standard for 360 Degree Video booths and VideoFX.
These offerings were once unobtainable for most of the event industry. Through ease of purchase, affordable pricing (made possible by scale), and finding new cost-effective processes, Pixster has been able to bring these services to the broader market, enhancing client experience and elevating the industry as a whole. Pixster is the clear leader in innovation and is the blueprint for many other event companies when determining trends and forecasting.
Another way in which Pixster has helped positively shape the events industry in the last 12 months was their response to the pandemic. During the pandemic, the events industry came to a drastic halt and Pixster received over 1800 cancellations. Pixster set the standard in the industry on how cancelations and postponements were handled and thus far Pixster has made good on accommodating every single rescheduled event without charging a fee or penalty. By creating an infrastructure that prioritized existing customers who had been forced to cancel their special events over new business, they demonstrated to partners, competitors and clients that sacrificing short terms profits can eventually lead to long term rewards. In addition, Pixster set the standard on what safe reopening of events looked like for photo booth companies. They took necessary steps to ensure the health and safety of employees and event guests. Their systems as well as verbiage on their website for how they were handling the safe reopening was widely adopted and copied by other companies in the industry.
