The Organiser of BoothCon
I thought I was excited about the first BoothCon but BoothCon18 is shaping up to be even more exciting given how well the first one was received and how much more I want to be able to achieve with this next one. Our industry is at a critical point and more than ever needs the positive impact a well constructed and educationally focused industry event can bring and that remains my focus.
My first “boothin” role began in 2010 as a Photo Booth Operator in South East Queensland which I did for 4.5 years. For the last 3 years I have been Owner and Head of Operations at Photobooth Finder a photo booth search, comparison and enquiry directory with over 250 member operators making this one of, if not the largest, photo booth networks in Australia. Additionally I helped set up and run Booth Cover. The photo booth industries only 100% dedicated insurance provider.
Apart from having successfully organised the first BoothCon I also have credentials as an organiser with nearly 10 years experience before getting into boothing as a travel agent organising thousands of business, personal, group and school trips. As a store manager/team leader for many of the travel agencies I worked for I also have the people management skills to work with a team to get things done.
As I write this I have nearly 12 months to to bring BoothCon18 to life and once again I have a great team of talented, enthusiastic and equally passionate people around me who are going to assist me in pulling off the best possible event.
I promise to deliver the best possible event and look forward to seeing you all in Sydney in 2018.
