Digital photo booth pop-ups this holiday season; text-to-win sweepstakes launches across U.S.

BETHESDA, MD — No time for holiday photos? Global restaurateur HMSHost has you covered. This holiday season, HMSHost is spreading holiday spirit and good cheer by bringing a digital photo booth to three U.S. airports offering travelers the opportunity to create a lasting memory during their travels. In addition to these Holiday Snapshots events, HMSHost launched a nationwide Holiday Twist Off promotion that gives travelers the chance to instantly win one of many gift cards, right in time for the holiday. 

“With our Holiday Snapshots photo booths, along with our instant win promotion, we’re delivering a unique and memorable experience to travelers, giving them an unexpected fun photo opportunity during the holiday travel season that they can remember for years to come,” said HMSHost Vice President of Marketing Atousa Ghoreichi. 

Beginning in December, HMSHost will bring its holiday-themed digital photo booth on select dates to Chicago O’Hare International Airport, McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, and Orlando International Airport. With these photo booths, travelers can instantly print a 4x6 photo to keep and they can also email their photo to loved ones and share it on social media with #HMSHostSnaps. Travelers can see in real-time their photos showcased on a giant social wall along with a social media feed of other #HMSHostSnaps photos. 

To further the fun holiday spirit, travelers can choose to pose with a wide selection of unique photo props to help creatively spruce up their photo sessions. Travelers who stop by and take a photo can also enjoy a 15% discount at participating HMSHost airport restaurants.

Travelers not at one of these airports are still encouraged to share a photo of themselves during their holiday travels tagging @HMSHost with #HMSHostSnaps for a chance to win a $100 digital retailer gift card. Photos will be picked based on creativity and relevance to the holiday travel season. Visit for rules and details.
