We are very pleased today to announce the 2012 International Photobooth Convention, which will be held at Electric Lodge in Venice, California, May 18 and 19, 2012. It’s been almost three years since our last event in Chicago, and with all of the exciting stuff going on in the world of photobooths, we’re ready for another convention. Just as in previous years, the event will be a low-key gathering featuring photobooth art, workshops, lectures, projects, and of course, free photochemical photobooths.

We’re still in the early planning stages of the event, but we wanted to make the announcement and let people know with as much lead time as possible. Check back on the Convention page, on our Facebook page for the event, and on our Twitter feed for updates as they become available. We very much hope some of our readers will be able to join us in California for the event, but if not, never fear, it will be well documented on our site as it happens.

Feel free to contact us with any questions about the convention, and stay tuned for more news as we get closer to the date. 


  1. Hi Brian, My name is Mary with Picture U Photobooths here in the SF Bay Area, we are so excited to find your website and to hear you have an upcoming convention surrounding Photobooths. We are in our second year of business and we are looking for other people doing the same business. Can you tell us about what to expect in Venice Calif May 18th and 19th. Thanks Mary

    The Photobooth Convention is more of a low-key get-together and art event for enthusiasts of photochemical photobooths than any kind of commercial thing. We’ll have art projects, talks, video screenings, and open photobooths for people to use. More plans will be posted on our site as they get finalized.
