Size: 1000+ attendees
Highlights: The European Higher Education Fair (EHEF) is a yearly event that "brings 80 institutions from over 20 EU Member States to promote their programs and courses to visitors interested in education opportunities in Europe." The EHEF organizers planned to draw in more attendees this year by inserting a bit of FUN to the event. PicTokyo brought their Photo Booth, their props, and their smiles on a beautiful, sunny Saturday.
Held at Meiji University in Tokyo, the event was easy access for many students at the school, and it attracted students from neighboring universities as well. As guests entered and left the fair, they stopped by the Photo Booth, had some fun, and took home a custom-printed photo as a souvenir.
We had a lot of great help from the volunteer students at the event, and to our MVP, Keita, for being such a charismatic person! You definitely helped made this event smoother!
Notes from Daniel:
"As I stepped foot inside the EU Delegation Office in Hiroo, I felt a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. To have the European Union contact us for an event told us that the past few years of steady hard work has finally bore fruit. I was smiling from ear to ear after the initial face-to-face meeting with the organizers. Thank you, EU Delegation for this opportunity!"
Participants experienced "graduation," dressed up in a classic black graduation gown (academical dress)
In addition to the graduation gowns, the European Union had these custom daruma (だるま) dolls made! I (Daniel) LOVED them and was thrilled to be able to take them home. I might just start my own daruma doll collection.
Attendees could choose from beautiful, scenic spots found in the participating EU countries as their background.
We designed a blue photo template inspired by the colors of the EU, as well as a silhouette of famous structures in Europe.
