Demo Session at Future Forward

OnLatte speaks at executive retreat

On November 19th, OnLatte will give a Demo Session talk at the invite-only executive retreat for the Future Forward conference.

According to their website:
“Future Forward explores the ways that innovative technologies are developed, and then deployed effectively in the real world. Since 2001, we’ve brought together New England’s top CIOs, CTOs, entrepreneurs, and investors for unvarnished conversations about creating competitive advantage and achieving breakout success.”

Thanks to an invite from FF founder, and Boston Globe columnist Scott Kirsner, OnLatte will be speaking about how the company was founded and its plans for the future. Afterward, during the cocktail reception, we will set up the printer and print the conference sponsor’s logo on Guinnesses for the guests.

We are extremely honored to be invited to this event, and being able to receive feedback from New England’s top executives and VCs is an incredible opportunity for our company. Who knows, maybe we will run into an investor with extra cash burning a hole in his/her pocket.

OnLatte Teams Up with Millipore

Creating Buzz at the Millipore Booth

On Oct. 22nd at the Boston World Trade Center, OnLatte was hired to run a complimentary latte service featuring the Millipore logo for all conference attendees. The goal was to provide a unique marketing opportunity that would help draw traffic and to keep people engaged. By all accounts, the service was a success. Elaine Fitzpatrick, Millipore’s corporate events specialist, had this to say:

While people lined up waiting for their latte, it was a perfect opportunity for our booth staff  to engage them in conversation about Millipore.

According to our stats, the average person would hang around the booth for at least 1 minute to watch the printer in action; which gave the booth staff ample time to introduce themselves and chat with the attendees. 

On several occasions we noted that people would walk by, do a double-take, and then turn around and stop in front of the exhibit to watch as the logo was printed on the latte.  One thing that we learned was the importance of having enough booth staff to mingle with the onlookers.

Are you looking to spice up your next event, and draw traffic that will stick?  Please feel free to inquire about our beverage service, and we will work with you to determine the best setup.

You did what with a Guinness?

OnLatte does the first image printing on a Guinness!

First Guinness Prints!

Many of you have seen bartenders draw a clover Shamrock in the foam of a Guinness (boring), but we decided to take it a step further and print the first images on a Guinness with our Latte Art Printer.  In honor of the upcoming elections, my friend Jane and I decided to print the nearby images on a Guinness.  It was then I realized, that we were actually making history as well!

This also has spawned a new service that we are planning on rolling out for pubs who want to shake things up a little. Think about it. What better way is there to break the ice and muster up the courage to chat with the person you are eyeing at the end of the bar? “Excuse me ma’am, but I couldn’t help but notice that you have something printed on your beverage…”

Please feel free to send us any comments if there are images you would like to see.  Better yet, give us a call (+1 617-401-8707) or sign up on our website for your next party and we will guarantee that your guests will have something to talk about!
