The frustration

The BMW Riders of Oregon held an iconic annual motorcycle event, the Chief Joseph rally. It was their 43rd rally, this event is a vibrant gathering that brings together over 400 motorcycle enthusiasts in John Day, Oregon. The coordinator of the event, Kurt Miller, faced a predicament. He wanted a platform to collect and showcase photographs from the attendees, capturing the essence and memories of the rally. He initially opted for a social media aggregator, but it proved problematic and ineffective. In previous years, the sharing of photos was manual and cumbersome, making the process inefficient and limiting engagement.

The fix in action

DropEvent emerged as the silver lining. Although it was Kurt's plan B, it completely outperformed his original idea:

  1. Attendees could effortlessly email their photographs directly to a provided address/link.
  2. DropEvent collected over 1,200 photographs and helped creating a lively slideshow. This slideshow became a focal point, with attendees gathering around to see the wholesome memories.
  3. These photographs are more than just digital files. They're memories which we can use for website, newsletters, and more, ensuring the rally's essence lingers throughout the year.

Conclusion

Kurt summed it up beautifully, "It worked out great for us. Thanks for this solution." Looking ahead, DropEvent isn't just a one-time tool for them; it's set to become a staple for their future events.

Hereโ€™s what people say after using DropEvent

Andrea Shirland
“I had a special event last month for 100 senior citizens and wanted a secure, yet easily accessible means of sharing the photos taken that night. 
Then, happily, I came upon the DROP EVENT website and it checked all my boxes: easy to use, good value with security to protect the privacy and identities of those in the photos.
DROPEVENT is simply FANTASTIC!!!  I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to share photos with the capacity to upload and download easily.

Clayton Halliburton
“We needed to compile family photos for 400+ teammates as a safety initiative at our plant. DropEvent made this simple and even allowed us to create individual links for our teammates to upload their photos to their corresponding department. We will be using DropEvent again in the future.”

Ashley Smith
“I volunteer with a group of almost 2,000 members and we couldn't find the best way to collect photos from our members. These photos are important to celebrate the work we are doing, recruitment and explaining different volunteer functions. By using DropEvent, we have been able to engage more members and see their unique experiences as volunteers, all in one place! I'm excited about all the new photos we are able to use going forward.”

Joshua Madden
"I'm so glad we found DropEvent for our wedding! It was the perfect tool for crowdsourcing all the amazing photos that our guests took. The fact that guests didn't need to create an account to upload their photos (directly from their phones), and were able to see all the other uploads (our choice) made the experience seamless and enjoyable. We had so much fun watching the photos roll in after the big day, and our guests were really impressed too. Highly recommended!”

“After our wedding, we were scrambling for a one stop photo and video sharing site where guests could quickly and easily upload without having to download an app. After a couple failed attempts with other sites, we settled on DropEvent for how easy it is to upload pictures and videos, the ability to organize into folders, and all without downloading an app! The customer service was fast and helpful, and my overall experience has been excellent. DropEvent is definitely the right choice for fast and easy photo and video sharing post wedding!”

Ann Davey
“It’s a great way to collect everyone’s event photos easily. Everything else seems to need an account or an app or sharp tech skills (or all 3!). But even a technophobe or a social media recluse can use this. And the easier you make it to do so then the more people will contribute so it’s a win win.”

“DropEvent was perfect for collecting photos from the wedding guests. I'm the "techy" friend and have set up photo sharing for several events over the years. DropEvent was the easiest, and best priced service I've ever used. Instead of looking for something new, next time I'm recommending DropEvent.”

“Just a word to say how great your application worked out for our 50th year High School Class Reunion. When putting our reunion together the committee looked at a lot of options for photos to capture the event including the costly expense of hiring a photographer. That’s when an internet search led us to your program. Now that the reunion is over, I just wanted to let you know, how happy we are with the choice we made! We ended up with over 165 pictures and best of all, it was from our own classmates phone cameras and their perspective. It was so easy with the DropEvent provided QR code. We printed out the code and placed one on each table at the dinner. The QR code took them directly to the event site which allowed them to pick and choose what pictures they wanted to upload. And upload they did! After the reunion we sent a link to all classmates, and even people who couldn’t attend, were able to feel like a part of the evening’s festivities. Thanks for an excellent and economical solution to our photo needs!”

โ€œWe used DropEvent for a medium sized wedding. Well worth the moderate cost, the guests loved that it was simple and that they didn't need to install an app or create an account, and it was a fantastic way to show pictures right away of the event to folks that couldn't make it (we have to wait a while for the professional photos). Overall, a very well designed and convenient service, and one that I will recommend to others when the need comes up in other .โ€

Took me a few hours of research to find a website that would work well to collect and display photos and videos from a recent high school reunion. There are a lot of photo-sharing websites out there but most seem to be designed either for professional photographers or to display photos live during an event. DropEvent seemed like the perfect fit for a high school reunion. I just started using it a few days ago and it's easy to use. They give you 45 days for everyone to upload their photos and videos. You can organize the photos and videos into folders so they're easier to view. You can add captions and choose whether to display photos with small thumbnails or larger images. You can set up your page with a password so only your classmates have access to the images and, if they want, you can set it up so that they can download any photos or videos they like. And, finally, the tech support has been amazing. I've been getting quick replies to all of my questions

โ€œI searched high and low for a service that would minimize barriers of needing to create an account, download an app, and more.โ€œAfter a tragic death, this was the best way to gather photo memories of our loved one. The platform made photo sharing seamless and will help the family grieve and honor the memories.โ€œEvery funeral home should be using your technology as a service to their families! Just wanted to share my gratitude. Thank you!โ€
