Portrait event at Euroshop
Live photo shoot at MC2 Europe booth during EuroShop in Düsseldorf, Germany
"If your message is about communication at trade fairs and exhibitions, how better to get it across than ‘face to face’? The brand architecture of our booth at EuroShop grew with each new encounter.
During the five-day event, photographer Gary Wornell captured the atmosphere in a total of 240 portraits of our visitors and guests, and as if by magic brought smiles to the faces of everyone he photographed. The photos were developed and printed there and then on the stand in a small professional studio, and were on display.
Needless to say his portraits were much in demand, and were very welcome as high quality give-aways. Together, the visitors and Gary’s authentic portraits of them made the MC2 Europe booth a truly unforgettable experience."
Jens Falkenburg, CEO MC² Europe
