Brightbox, Inc., a platform provider of networked, safe and secure mobile charging, is the official charging sponsor of IMEX 2014, a meetings exhibition taking place at the Sands Expo, Oct. 14-16.
IMEX creates a unique environment for global meeting and hospitality professionals to gather in one place.
“Brightbox has enjoyed a high level of success with hotels and casinos [that] have embraced customer need for a secure charging amenity,” said Billy Gridley, CEO, Brightbox. “IMEX is a unique opportunity for us to showcase and introduce our new Brightbox Mark3 platform to more hospitality professionals.”
The new Brightbox Mark3 mobile charging platform, which enables consumers to continue to communicate, navigate, search, shop, share, pay and play on their mobile devices, is the most innovative, safe and secure mobile device charging solution available today. Unlimited time charging sessions via the Brightbox amenity are offered for free to hospitality industry attendees of the IMEX show. Users simply swipe a credit card to open an available station chamber, plug in their mobile device, close the chamber and return later to swipe the same card to retrieve their charged phone.
Brightbox is for tradeshows, conferences, and professional meetings and is the latest event technology that can be customized to clients’ needs. Brightbox Mark3 features a 10” interactive touch screen, customizable swipe cards and a strong brand-messaging platform. The UL and agency certified stations employ the strongest cryptography to ensure the physical and data integrity of phones being charged, are PCI compliant and meet the highest standards for security and safety. They offer retractable charging cables and larger chambers that can accommodate nearly any mobile device, including the latest tablets, while delivering the safest and quickest charge possible at the fastest optimized manufacturer’s recommended rate.
Brightbox charging stations are anticipated to be heavily used throughout the entire week at IMEX as the conference features a dozen educational classes as well as seminars that require high levels of social media connectivity amongst attendees. Hospitality professionals can continue to go to meetings, network, eat and work, resting assured that their phones are being safely and optimally charged in a station that delivers both data privacy and physical security. Brightbox charging is instrumental in keeping conference attendees connected who might otherwise be tempted to return to their hotel if their phone is without a charge, while also ensuring continued interaction with the IMEX Show’s mobile apps via a fully charged device.
“Mobile applications are an integral part of the tradeshow experience. Exhibitors and attendees alike rely on them to make appointments, enhance the show experience and keep patrons connected on social media,” said Joel Martin, global events director, Brightbox. “Meeting professionals tend use more cellular power at closed shows so it is important to have a good solution for their charging needs on site.”
In addition, Brightbox will have a Brightbox lounge across from Visit Florida, one of the most popular displays at the show.
“We’ve just opened our new Florida office, so it is only natural for us to support the state by having our charging lounge across from such a popular destination at the show,” added Martin.
