Thanks to thephotobooth.gr (our partner for events in Greece), we've had the opportunity to set up our panoramic selfie system for Nescafé Frappé, sponsor of the Athens Release Festival...
This campaign was another success and we can't wait for more activations in Greece and Cyprus this summer!
Paris for Dessert was a three-day-long, immersive Parisian dinner experience in New York City, where one lucky couple could win an unforgettable culinary experience which included two round-trip Business Class tickets from New York to Paris, a two-night stay at a Marriott hotel and dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant at the Saint James Paris.
On June 12 - 14, the Air France’s Paris for Dessert staircase in Union Square Plaza, on Broadway and East 17th Street was open to the public. This lovely pop up installation - set up by experiential agency We Are Gradient - was equipped with our panoramic selfie system.
People were invited to climb to the top of the staircase to take their panoramic selfie. Our superzoom camera was installed more than 300 meters away form the staircase, on the 22nd floor of a building.
To enter the contest, participants had to post their panoramic selfie video on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #parisfordessert.
The outcome was incredible! We collected more than 600 panoramic selfie with a huge involvement by the participants.
We Are Gradient probably made the best use of the panoramic selfie technology in an experiential marketing context. We provided them a powerful solution to advertise the brand experience in real time, capturing the extraordinary and emotional connection between the participants and Air France.
Belgium: this small country that we love. This country whose people are proud without really showing it, because showing off is not their thing. And still, the saxophone, the dynamo, surrealism, the world wide web and, not to be forgotten, the delicious fries are all Belgian inventions that revolutionised the world. Not to mention the exhibitions, the landscape, the sense of humour and the welcoming reception. Yes, Belgium is phenomenal. But not like other countries. Belgium is phenomenal in its own way. Uniquely, and almost secretly.
FPS Chancellery of the Prime Minister launched with Ogilvy Brussels and VO Event a big campaign to promote the Belgitude all over the country and the world. Thanks to Eventattitude, our partner for events on the Belgian market, our panoramic selfie technology was part of the kick-off event during the Red Devils Fan Day.
Let's hope there will be plenty of more opportunities to make your #BelPhenomenal panoramic selfie this year...
We were in Mechelen this Sunday for the final day of the 8th edition of this amazing event organized to raise funds to help the fight against cancer. The event was a huge success, with 4.085.000 € raised!
Our panoramic selfie system was installed on the city hall, pointing towards the main square and the St Rumbold’s Tower, which features on the UNESCO list of world heritage.
Today, we were lucky to make some tests from an amazing place: the roof of Palais 5 at Brussels Expo. Built in 1935 for the World Exposition, this building offers a breath-taking view on Brussels and the Atomium.
Have a look at our demo!
Together with UP Brand Activation - our partner for the Czech and Slovakian markets - we've been busy with panoramic selfie campaigns for Fanta during 2 festivals for YouTubers in Praha and Brno.
Have a look at the photo report and the panoramic selfie videos samples...
To celebrate Europe Day, the EU institutions open their doors to the public on 6 May in Brussels. Local EU offices in Europe and all over the world organise a variety of activities and events for all ages. Each year thousands of people take part in visits, debates, concerts and other events to mark the day and raise awareness about the EU.
Following a successful first collaboration during the opening of its Europa Building, The Council of the European Union asked Panora.me to install its panoramic selfie solution during the Europe Day.
The result? Almost 350 panoramic selfie videos were made during the day, generating thousands of views on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp)!
Eventattitude (our partner for events and brand activation in Belgium) installed a panoramic selfie solution for Sportizon and its client Cofidis during the Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2017.
The public was invited to take a panoramic selfie on the Cofidis stand on Place Saint-Lambert, with the former Prince-Bishops' Palace in the background.
While in Madrid (see other blog post about Plaza Toros de Las Ventas), we took the opportunity to make this demo in the Parc del Buen Retiro...
The Buen Retiro Park is a large and popular 1.4 km2 (350 acres) park at the edge of the city centre, very close to the Puerta de Alcalá and not far from the Prado Museum. A magnificent park, filled with beautiful sculpture and monuments, galleries, a peaceful lake and host to a variety of events, it is one of Madrid's premier attractions. The park is entirely surrounded by the present-day city.
During our trip in Madrid, we took the opportunity to make a demo in Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas (often shortened to Las Ventas). This is a famous bullring situated in the Guindalera quarter of the district of Salamanca, it was inaugurated on June 17, 1931. It has a seating capacity of 25,000.
This bullring was designed by the architect José Espeliú in the Neo-Mudéjar (Moorish) style with ceramic incrustations. The seats are situated in ten "tendidos". The price of the seats depends upon how close they are to the arena and whether they are in the sun or the shade (the latter being more expensive). The bullfighting season starts in March and ends in October; bullfights are held every day during the San Isidro Fiesta, and every Sunday or holiday during the season.
Las Ventas can also be visited and there is also a museum...
This week-end, we were in Dubai for the Earth Hour Challenge. We were very excited to get the opportunity to install our panoramic selfie solution in front of the Burj Khalifa!
The Burj Khalifa, known as the Burj Dubai before its inauguration, is a megatall skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It has a roof height of 828 m (2,717 ft), and with its antenna included, it stands a total height of 829.8 m (2,722 ft), making it the tallest building and the tallest structure in the world.
The UAE has been celebrating Earth Hour every year since 2008, with all seven emirates involved. It is the biggest environmental event of the year, and with each passing Earth Hour more and more people are showing their commitment to our planet.
We were asked by the Belgian newspaper La Libre to highlight their presence on the Brussels Book Fair with a panoramic selfie activation on their booth.
We took this opportunity to test our new solution for indoor locations like museums or shopping malls. No more smartphone here. The superzoom camera can be triggered through an iPad...
In addition, we've also tested a new creative trick at the end of the zoom-out. Together with the fact that the video is now looping, it makes the whole package quite spectacular on social media!
The belfry is part of the Charleroi City Hall, designed by architect Joseph André in 1936. It is a perfect blend of Classicism and Art Deco. The 70-metre-high belfry can be accessed by climbing 250 stairs and was built using blue and white stone and bricks. It is crowned with a small bronze tower. The last three levels are reserved for the chambers of the 47 bells forming the carillon. Every fifteen minutes it chimes out a few bars of folk songs by Jacques Bertrand, the bard of Charleroi. This belfry is a UNESCO world heritage site and can now be visited by tourists every Wed an Sat afternoons.
We couldn't resist to test our panoramic selfie technology on this beautiful - but sadly quite unknown - historical site...
We've been asked by the City of Charleroi to install our panoramic selfie system for 7 days during the Viva For Life event.
For every panoramic selfie taken, Panora.me supported Viva For Life with a financial contribution. At the end of the week, more than 850 videos have been generated - more than 60% of those being shared on social media...
From Dec 22nd to Jan 2nd, the Municipality of Brussels is offering you to take part to the Brussels And Me experience at Atomium.

That's why we propose to every tourist, Belgian or inhabitants of Brussels to take part to this free experience and share a panoramic selfie with their families and friends. 2017 is coming and it's a cool way to wish a happy new year to your beloved ones!"
A first edition of Brussels And Me has been held this summer. On 3 weeks time, 20.000 participants joined the movement and 8.000 panoramic selfies have been taken and shared on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and WhatsApp...
