Brightbox Inc., the leading platform provider of networked, safe and secure mobile charging, will be enhancing the attendee experience at Event Marketer magazine’s upcoming EventTech conference and exposition, taking place Nov. 3-5 at The Bellagio in Las Vegas.
“We’re thrilled to have Brightbox join us at EventTech 2014,” said Jeff Fortmann, associate publisher, Event Marketer. “Enhancing the attendee experience is always something my team is focused on. Brightbox will allow our attendees to stay charged, focused and excited.”
EventTech is the world’s only conference and exposition entirely focused on using social media and technology to optimize events and tradeshows. Upwards of 1,000 marketers from across the Fortune 1000 and the most innovative marketing agencies join together to learn the latest trends on connecting digital and live, hear new ways to activate events with social media and test-drive hundreds of event technologies.
“Brightbox is the next big thing for event marketers in need of a customizable and secure mobile device charging amenity,” said Billy Gridley, CEO, Brightbox. “EventTech is a unique opportunity for us to showcase and introduce the new Brightbox Mark3 platform to the experiential marketing industry.”
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 charging sessions via Brightbox will be offered to EventTech attendees. 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 perfect for tradeshows, conferences and events and is the latest event technology that can be customized to clients’ needs. The Brightbox Mark3 features a 10” interactive touchscreen, customizable swipe cards and a strong brand-messaging platform. The UL and agency certified stations ensure the physical security 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 phablets, while delivering the safest fast charge possible at optimized manufacturer recommended rates.
“Mobile applications are an integral part of advertising today. From shopping malls to experiential street activations, agencies rely on mobile to have customers interact on social media, so this show is a great way for us to reach this market and showcase the Brightbox Mark3 as the best solution in the marketplace,” said Joel Martin, global events director, Brightbox. “Event professionals tend to use more mobile power at conferences, so it is critical to have the Brightbox solution available for their on-site charging needs.”
Brightbox charging stations are anticipated to be heavily used throughout the entire EventTech conference, which features more than 100 classes on technology and social media. Attendees can continue to go to sessions, network, take meetings and work, resting assured that their phones are being safely and optimally charged in a station that delivers both data privacy and physical security.
In addition, Brightbox will have an exhibit at EventTech, allowing attendees to learn more about the company and its products.
