The New Kids On The Block
When you hear the word cell phone charging stations what comes to your mind? For ECM Media, its one word, “relationships”. OOH Today will not argue relationships are important when marketing your products or service. We would add targeting is essential. Cell phone batteries notoriously run out of power too quickly. In an environment like a conference, it can be a scramble to find an outlet to recharge between breaks. The tables with multiple charging connections are a welcomed relief. Common in airports, casinos, restaurants, shopping malls, stadiums, and airports; branded charging tables effectively target.
OOH Today almost pulled off a last-minute ‘buy’ placing two of these cell phone charging stations at last month’s GO2018 Out of Home Media Conference & Expo in Austin. Geopath, the 2018 convention’s host and vendor ECM, were more than accommodating in our late planning, placing ‘tables’ outside the doors of the main conference hall. Unfortunately, we were not able to pull the trigger in time to move forward. What better way to message the OOH attendees, especially when the Expo booths are sold out. Bonus for us was the data collection for each person who plugged in. For those exhibitors who secure a place in the Expo center, a charging booth would add to their visits and dwell time.
We still like the idea. Maybe, next year.
