Brightbox Announces West Coast Expansion and New Marketing Features

Tech-Forward Hospitality Venues Offer Guests a Secure Charging Amenity for Mobile Devices

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 06, 2013) -  Brightbox, Inc. (http://brightboxcharge.com), the premier provider of elegant and secure mobile device charging stations, today announced the Company has expanded its presence to the west coast. With this expansion, technology-forward hospitality venues are now offering Brightbox as a convenient amenity for on-the-go guests to recharge their mobile devices in public. The Roosevelt Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles, the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, the Hilton Anaheim and both the Sheraton and Westin Hotels in Seattle are the first establishments to offer Brightbox, and the Company has plans to announce additional deployment at hospitality locations in San Francisco, San Diego and Las Vegas in the coming weeks.

Alongside the Company's expansion, Brightbox, Inc. also announced new technology features to empower venues to utilize Brightbox as a marketing vehicle to further engage with guests. With a new "tiered pricing" model, venues now can offer charging for free and for a fee. Loyal customers and VIP users with a Venue Loyalty card or customized Brightbox Charge Card receive the one-of-a-kind benefit of free charging. New customers who use credit or debit cards pay a fixed fee per charging session. Additionally, Brightbox now enables venues to create targeted customizable video messages that appear across the Brightbox screen before or after the charging session. This video feature can be used to promote their brand, publicize special events, advertise amenities such as the hotel spa or bar, or simply to thank customers for their patronage. Finally, the new Brightbox mobile phone app locates the nearest Brightbox and draws customers into host venues.

With global smartphone sales overtaking feature phone sales for the first time in 2013, trend-setting hospitality venues are recognizing the importance and value of accommodating guests' mobile technology demands, as well as the security concerns associated with these demands. Brightbox offers venues a service that is easy to deploy and differentiates their business while allowing them to generate additional revenue. Furthermore, Brightbox charging stations are designed with aesthetics and the user experience in mind, making it a convenient lifestyle product suited for establishments that also prioritize these qualities.

"Our rapid growth is organic, stemming from strong corporate partnerships that we have built with innovative organizations on the east coast," said Billy Gridley, CEO, Brightbox, Inc. "Their feedback has always been, 'let's do the west coast next,' which, with its tech-forward urban clientele makes great business sense. These partnerships are the backbone of our expansion and scaling efforts, as our hospitality partners have recognized the value Brightbox adds to the bottom line."
