People love to share their experiences—so much so that 95 million photos are uploaded to Instagram® every day. How can you get in on this trend? For your next event, create fun opportunities that are easily shareable. Paired with exciting event gifts, these opportunities will turn your gathering into one that’s shared and liked on social media.
To turn your event into an online collage of #hashtags and #selfies, try these ideas:
- Put up signs with suggested hashtags to encourage people to share.
- Use decorations and event giveaways that make fun photo opportunities.
- Hire a photographer to take and post creative photos people can tag themselves in.
- Offer prizes (even if it’s just bragging rights) for likes, shares, selfies and hashtag usage.
Try these picture-perfect event gifts to encourage people to participate.

Shareable hashtags help fill your social media timelines
Every photo can become a shareable opportunity simply by adding a #hashtag to your event giveaways and banners.

Pass out a Mini Foldable Selfie Stick imprinted with a special company hashtag, and every picture the recipient takes will remind them that it’s #shareable.
The FrameWorx Banner Stand lets two people turn their faces and some silly cartoon bodies into a shareable moment. It has easily swapped replacement graphics for when you want your #shareable #selfie #subjects to become astronauts or pirates.
If your event is more serious, the FrameWorx Banner Stand provides a #shareable moment with your full-color imprint. Its design can be easily swapped with a replacement graphic to be used again and again.
Add colorful images to these banner stands for shareable photo opportunities!
