How a professional Event Photographer can help your event in Barcelona.

Barcelona is also world famous for it’s many international conferences and events. Each February people travel from all over the world to attend the Mobile World Congress (MWC). The event is so huge, that in 2019 it had 109,000 attendees, of which 7,900 were CEOs, 3,640 were International Media and Industry Analysts, and 2,400 were exhibitors.

4YFN, Barcelona Wine Week, Expo Sports, Alimentaria, Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week, Retail and Brand Experience World Congress, IOT Solutions World Congress, Manga Barcelona, and the Smart City Expo World Congress.

As you can see, Barcelona is a very influential city on the world stage. If your business is participating in an event or conference in Barcelona, here are:

5 reasons why you should consider hiring a professional Event Photographer for your event. 

1) Show the world how great your event was

You’ve invested money, time and energy in making your event a success. With the help of a professional Event and Conference Photographer you’ll be able to show the world how successful your event was.

An experienced Event Photographer knows how to cover your conference in a unique and engaging way. They have been trained to capture the most important moments (the laughter during a workshop, or your most influential speaker delivering their talk).

These photos will be treasured by your attendees, speakers and sponsors. Good conference photographs can provide you with content for your website, newsletters and social media.

2) Professional photographs help you promote your event after it’s finished

You’ve spent months preparing your event, and it’s paid off: you solidified business opportunities and made new ones.

However, without Professional Photographs from your event, you have nothing tangible to show just how great your event was. This is even more important if you have a special guest speaker, an impressive exhibition stand or a memorable event.

Strong photographs from your event help you tell your story to your audience.

If you have a point of interest at your exhibition stand, professional photos will help you promote your next event.

If you have a unique experience for your attendees, great photographs provide great memories for those who were there.

Event photos can be used to promote your next event, giving potential attendees an idea of what to expect when they meet you face to face.

Both our online and offline worlds are saturated with imagery. In order to stand out you need great photos. Attention-grabbing images that show the emotion and energy from your event provide invaluable marketing material for your next one. 

3) Create a buzz on Social Media

Nowadays, your Social Media followers expect live updates throughout the day during an event or conference. Why settle for photos taken on your phone, when you could upload much higher quality and professional looking photographs?

Photos like this can be added to your Social Media during the event.

Many professional Event and Conference Photographers can supply you with Social Media images during the event. These can be used in your tweets to help them stand out from the crowd of your audience’s congested social media feeds. 

Tweets with images earned up to 18 percent more clicks, 89 percent more favorites, and 150 percent more retweets. (Source: Buffer)

4) Capturing flattering photos of your speakers and audience in a candid way

A trained and experienced Event Photographer knows how to predict when someone is about to laugh, look engaged or just plain cool.

They have the skills, patience and knowledge of how to best position themselves to get engaging and killer images. They take into considerations things such as the best angle to flatter the subject, the lighting, and how to incorporate the environment to create visually rich photographs.
