imageHOLDERS Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary in the Digital Kiosk Industry


Jonny Christmas



Celebrating a fantastic 10 years since the launch of imageHOLDERS in December 2013

10-Year Anniversary Plaque

Looking back at a historical 10 years in business.

December 2023 marks 10 years since imageHOLDERS was fully launched. It is a decade which has seen many fantastic years of growth, world-class kiosk design and some remarkable landmarks.

Interestingly, imageHOLDERS was actually founded in 2001 by Adrian Thompson, who had a vision to make technology accessible for all. However, with tablet technology not available on the open market until the late 2000s and the first Apple iPad only being launched in 2010, imageHOLDERS was very much ahead of its time!

By 2013, technology had evolved sufficiently for Adrian to turn his business vision into a reality and he launched imageHOLDERS fully in December 2013.

While we celebrate a wonderful 10 years, we look back at how technology has changed how we as users interact with it, as well as taking a moment to reflect on the past decade. From our first £1 million order, surviving a global pandemic and becoming an award-winning company, we have listed some of the most significant highlights here in our 10-year history in the timeline below:
