The Utah Jazz and Chatbooks today announced a multi-year agreement to make Chatbooks the official photo book partner of the Utah Jazz, allowing Chatbooks to highlight its commitment to building a stronger Utah community as it captures special game-night memories among families and friends, and through a variety of other fan-based programs.
“Partnering with the Utah Jazz was a no-brainer for us, not only because we’re Jazz fans ourselves, but because our organizations share the same values of family and community,” said Nate Quigley, CEO of Chatbooks. “I think fans will be especially excited about this partnership because it’s going to give them great photos of their game experience. Chatbooks is taking fan photos to the next level by using facial recognition software to turn their favorite Jazz moments into printable family memories.”
Throughout the 2022-23 season, Chatbooks ‘Fan Fame’ partnership will provide fans with multiple new ways to create memories during each home game, including:
- Fan Fame: Using facial recognition technology, fans will be able to find all their posed and candid photos taken in the arena – including free photos from Chatbooks’ designated photo stations, or candid videos displayed on a video board – within the Utah Jazz mobile app. These ‘Fan Fame’ photos and video clips will be automatically delivered to their mobile phones before the night is over, courtesy of Chatbooks.
- Fan Fame Photographers: From designated photo stations to on-the-go locations, Chatbooks will provide ‘Fan Fame Photographers’ at each Jazz home game to capture fan memories on the plaza and throughout Vivint Arena.
- Selfie of the Game: During each home game, Chatbooks will display a collage of fans’ social media photos associated with the ‘Take Note’ hashtag on the center-hung video boards. Fans will also be encouraged to submit images for the ‘Selfie of the Game’ to be eligible to win an autographed Jazz jersey.
“Jazz games create indelible sports and entertainment moments for our fans,” said Utah Jazz Chief Commercial Officer Chris Barney. “This partnership with Chatbooks is a perfect fit because together we can unite families and friends, share good times, and provide lasting keepsakes.”
Founded in 2014, Chatbooks is based in Lehi, Utah, as a service to commemorate memories by printing monthly photo memory books, special occasion photo books, and social media books.
