Fanoramas is obsessed with the fan experience. Using the power of big events to bring people together and create epic memories is what we are all about. My husband Al is a massive sports fan and has been around the world to all kinds of events. The biggest thing missing for him was the option to have a great photo of himself from the game. We’ve picked large venues because we are creating a global brand that fans love. Our vision is to be an expected part of every event experience. We appeal to the fans because we capture them during their authentic in-the-moment reactions. When fans are standing and cheering we are capturing that moment for them and giving it back to them to cherish and relive whenever they want. Every night is special to fans in different ways. Maybe it’s your kids very first ball game or you just witnessed the NHL Stanley Cup win in your hometown! Those are both amazing moments with meaning.
