The Brightbox secure charging amenity strongly enhances the experience of guests. They can use their phones to their heart’s content knowing they can safely charge at any time and continue to be delighted for as long as they want.

Brightbox, Inc. (, the leading platform provider of networked, safe and secure mobile device charging, is pleased to announce that it is the official charging sponsor of IAAPA Attractions Expo 2014, which takes place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando from November 18th to the 21st.

IAAPA creates a unique environment for global attractions professionals to gather in one place and share the latest about their industry. “Guests are using their phones more than ever to navigate around theme parks and other attractions venues, capture family memories with photos and video, share the excitement with friends via social media, and search for movie times, restaurants, shopping and deals while enjoying a day out.” said Billy Gridley, CEO of Brightbox. “The Brightbox secure charging amenity strongly enhances the experience of guests. They can use their phones to their heart’s content knowing they can safely charge at any time and continue to be delighted for as long as they want.”

The spectacles and rides may be hair-raising and heart-pounding experiences, but charging your phone at theme parks is not thanks to Brightbox. With the new Brightbox® Mark3 charging station, theme and waterparks, museums, ski resorts, skating rinks, bowling alleys, mini golf courses and classic arcades are able to provide their guests with a secure charging amenity that allows them to continue to communicate, navigate, search, shop, share, eat, pay, play and be thrilled, resting assured that their phones are being safely and optimally charged in a station that delivers both physical security and data privacy. Guests can happily remain longer at the attractions and stay connected to family and friends.

Gary Bordman, Chief Interactive Designer at AE & ES (  (Amusement, Exhibit & Event Services, LLC), believes Brightbox meets a growing charging need at Family Entertainment Centers. "At many of these locations revenue on games can vary widely. By offering a charging amenity, FECs can leverage the need for secure charging shared by both younger and older attendees, earn direct revenue, increase dwell time and support their base of gaming revenue." Mr. Bordman goes on to state: "When the parents drop off the kids at the arcade or mini golf center they don't mind paying extra for a charge card to ensure everyone can still call home when it is time to be picked up."

The new Brightbox® Mark3 mobile charging platform 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 industry attendees of the IAAPA Attractions Expo 2014. Users simply swipe a credit/debit or complimentary 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® Mark3 features a 10” interactive touch screen, 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 with a best-in-class encrypted card reader and meet the highest standards for safety and security. 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.
