Organisers of HOSPACE2016 Conference and Exhibition have selected Chargifi’s wireless charging platform to keep some of the most powerful names in the sector fully charged throughout the one-day conference.
Chargifi offerrs venues such as coffee shops, bars, hotels and airports the ability to offer customers a free wireless charging service across eight markets. For the first time this year, HOSPACE delegates will be able to charge their phones and tablets on Chargifi spots installed at the event, due to take place on 10 November at the Sofitel London.
A recent OnePoll survey, commissioned by Chargifi, found that 56% of the 2,000 British adults surveyed said that wireless charging should be made a free amenity in public areas. A similar number added that they’d willing to spend between £1 and £5 in a public venue simply to charge their phones and devices. More women than men (64% versus 51%) would be willing to spend anything up to £15 in a venue to charge their devices.
Jane Pendlebury, chief executive at Hospa, organisers of HOSPACE said: “We want to present the industry with cutting edge ideas that will provide, amongst other things insight into how their customers behave and putting Chargifi at the heart of their own customer experience on the day felt logical to us.”
Dan Bladen, Chargifi’s CEO, added: “I created Chargifi when I went travelling and couldn’t find anywhere safe or convenient to charge my phone. As customers demand free wireless charging and consider it a utility, it is great to be able to engage with hospitality professionals who seek to engage with their customers and make their lives easier at event such as this.”
