Best known for his book, The Power of Positive Thinking, author Norman Vincent Peale wrote, “Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities—always see them, for they’re always there.” This week, we tip our hats to three such “possibilitarians” who not only see the possibilities, but are actively transforming them into new and exciting opportunities.
EventsAIR Passes 100,000 Virtual Attendees Via OnAIR
A trailblazer for event technology and innovation for more than 30 years, EventsAIR continually reimagines what an event management platform can do. When COVID-19 forced restrictions on in-person events, EventsAIR responded by launching its OnAIR virtual and hybrid event solution in May 2020. The cloud-based solution offers a secure online environment where conference, meeting and event attendees can connect, share ideas and do business via an intuitive web interface.
EventsAIR recently celebrated the record-breaking milestone of 100,000 virtual attendees, which equates to more than 300,000 registrations and hundreds of events over a three-month period.
According to Global Sales & Marketing Director Joe Ciliberto, “As the product evolves, we will enter into the next phase of virtual events where a blended or hybrid-style of events will emerge. Version 3 of OnAIR will be well-positioned to offer clients a smooth transition while maintaining a high level of engagement and capability.”
Built by event planners for event planners, EventsAIR is a secure, scalable, cloud-based solution that can manage everything from in-person, virtual to hybrid conferences, meetings and events in a single online platform—anywhere, anytime and on any device.

OutSnapped Delivers Full Digital Branding Experience Online
The pandemic could have forced photographer Nicholas Rhodes, aka Nicky Digital, to shutter his photo booth business OutSnapped. Instead, this tenacious “possibilitarian” reinvented his brand by taking it online and delivering a full digital branding experience to companies, tradeshows and event planners.
With OutSnapped, virtual attendees can play inside a virtual photo booth and use custom overlays and stickers to create fun individual photos, or harness the power of AI to create virtual group shots. Further, microsites, mosaic video recaps and event platform integration allow everyone to show off snaps, gifs, and more, as part of a wide-reaching campaign. From digital shutter click to social share, OutSnapped’s tools turn screen time into a shared experience for virtual attendees and curated content for brands and influencers. (Pictured right: Attendees stood out at the 2020 Harlem Fashion Row Designer Retreat and owned the virtual red carpet at the premier of “Raised By Wolves” on HBOMax).
Rhodes honed his craft shooting for notable publications, international music festivals, performers and fashion brands. Through OutSnapped, he is bringing his expertise in photography, design and social media to elevate both digital and live event experiences.
