Setting Up the Virtual Event Photo Booth

Getting the selfie photo booth up and running for your event takes no time at all! It allows your attendees to contribute selfies directly to the event feed, which will be visible in the virtual event lobby and the physical event mobile event app - contributing to an exciting suite of hybrid event features to bring physical and virtual attendees closer together.
