New Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Photo Album Set in Orlando
Filed under: News
To celebrate the only minivan that allows scrapbookers to take their hobby on the long haul, the Dodge brand has broken the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest photo album. Presented at a scrapbookers’ convention in Orlando, Fla., the record-breaking album measures approximately 9 feet wide by 12 feet tall, contains 20 pages of photographs and requires at least two adults to turn a single page. The Dodge brand’s album trumped the previous record, which was set in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and measured 3.9 feet wide by 7.8 feet tall.
The Dodge Minivan Page in History record-breaking event recognized the mass appeal of scrapbooking – a more than $2.6 billion industry – and the arrival of the all-new 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan in dealer showrooms. Following the official Guinness announcement, consumers, who had come to Orlando to participate in a 72-hour scrap-a-thon, helped “scrap” the record-breaking album by adding their own unique touches using oversized embellishments such as ribbons, stickers, buttons and more.
Photography in the album highlights the history of the Dodge minivan since its introduction in 1984. The album showcases the latest innovation in the Dodge Grand Caravan, the Swivel ‘n Go™ seating system, which offers second row seats that swivel 180 degrees to face the third-row with a removable table that installs between the two rows, covered storage bins in the floor of the second-row, third-row uncovered storage and fold-in-the-floor third-row seating.
“We embellished the Dodge Grand Caravan with 35 new and improved features, so it made sense to invite some of the world’s best scrapbookers to experience the new features of our minivan and add embellishments of their own to our giant photo album,” said Mike Accavitti, Director – Dodge Brand Marketing and Global Communications. “In addition to being a top performer in the minivan market, the all-new 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan is setting the standard for storage and organization on the road. With its exclusive Swivel ‘n Go™ seating system and table, the Dodge Grand Caravan converts quickly and easily into the perfect scrapbooking space for busy scrapbookers ‘on the go.’”
