In today's digital age, it has become increasingly important for event organisers to address the ever-growing need for charging solutions at festivals.
With the rapid advancements in technology and constant reliance on smartphones, attendees expect to stay connected throughout their event experience. To meet this demand, providing wireless charging solutions has become a must-have feature for any successful festival.
With Crable, we will explore six signs that indicate that now is the time for your festival to embrace wireless charging solutions.
Crable Wireless Charging Shelves are customisable charging units offering the potential for enhanced brand exposure through PAD printing of calls to action and QR codes, as well as improved security.
1. Attendees Frustration with Battery Life:
One of the easiest signs that indicate the need for charging solutions at your festival is attendee frustration with their device's battery life.
With the extensive use of smartphones to capture and share experiences, attendees often find themselves running out of battery well before the event concludes.
By offering wireless charging stations, strategically placed throughout the festival grounds, festival operators can provide a cable-free, convenient solution that alleviates attendee frustration and allows attendees to stay connected, capture their memories and access their devices without worries.
Attendees can be comforted in the knowledge that their devices won’t die from lack of charge while attending your festival events.
Nomophobia is a term used to describe the fear or anxiety of being without a mobile phone or being unable to use it. With the emergence of digital tickets, mobile payment options and increasingly battery-draining smartphone cameras, nomophobia can arise in anyone at any time but at festivals this fear can be elevated.
2. Increased Reliance on Digital Ticketing and mobile payment options:
With the shift towards digitalisation, festivals have started to transition from traditional paper tickets to digital ticketing systems.
This transformation offers numerous benefits, including enhanced security and convenience. However, relying on digital ticketing means attendees will need to present their smartphones at the entrance, potentially further draining their battery before they even enter the event.
By providing Crable Wireless Charging Shelves at the entrance or the ticketing booth, you ensure a smooth entry process for attendees while maintaining the integrity of the digital ticketing system.
Mobile payment options have become increasingly popular due to their convenience and speed. With the ability to simply tap or scan your phone to make a payment, it eliminates the need to carry cash or cards, making transactions seamless and secure.
However, for such payment options to thrive, it’s essential to provide wireless charging solutions to ensure smooth and consistent payment options throughout the festival grounds. As festival-goers are likely to spend long hours at these events, losing battery power will hinder their ability to make these contactless payments.
By offering Crable Wireless Charging Shelves, festivals can enhance the overall experiences for attendees, ensuring uninterrupted access to mobile payment options.
3. Brand Exposure Opportunities:
Festivals are not only about the music or the attractions - they also present excellent opportunities for brands to connect with their target audience.
By implementing Crable Wireless Charging Shelves you can take advantage of brand exposure opportunities through printed logos, designs, advertising and more. Crable uses PAD printing on our wireless shelves and this innovative technology allows you to display your brand logo or a promotional message on the charging stations, showcasing your brand to a captive audience.
This added exposure can increase brand recognition and leave a lasting impression on attendees who will surround the wireless charging shelf while their devices charge.
Strategically placed advertising, branding or logos views can be maximised via attendee interaction, becoming a focal point for festival goers.
4. Integration of QR Codes:
QR codes are becoming increasingly prevalent in various industries due to their convenience and versatility. The ability to integrate QR codes with Crable Wireless Charging Shelves allows festival operators to offer attendees an effortless way to access event information, schedules, and exclusive offers.
As an example, scanning the QR code on the charging station can direct attendees to a mobile app with all the necessary event details. It can also be used to direct attendee and other interested parties to various external information.
The address on the QR code can be changed to give focused relevancy for different festivals. This integration not only enhances the attendee experience but also provides an opportunity to track user engagement and gather valuable data for future events and festivals, maximising your customer base and building a catalogue of customer interactions.
5. Enhanced Security:
Hosting a safe and secure festival is a top priority for any organiser. By incorporating wireless charging solutions, such as Crable Wireless Charging Shelves, you can improve security measures and reduce potential risks.
In the case of an emergency or lost individual, attendees with charged devices can quickly contact emergency services or locate their friends or family members.
Moreover, wireless charging stations can be strategically placed in well-lit areas with surveillance cameras, adding an additional layer of security.
Crable Wireless Charging Shelves are built with a myriad of security features in mind. The cable-free shelf is a great alternative to trailing cables -the fewer trip hazards or electrical hazards available, the safer the festival or event will be.
Crable Wireless Charging Shelves are fitted to provide advanced security which would make it near-impossible to damage or steal. While almost all other charging solutions can simply be unplugged and taken away at will, the Crable shelf is installed in a way which makes removing it from the wall or temporary station by prohibited persons an extremely tough ask.
Approved fitters can safely and effectively fit and remove a Crable Wireless shelf throughout festival and events.
6. Addressing Environmental Concerns:
In recent years, there has been an increased focus within the market on sustainable practices and reducing environmental impact. By offering Crable Wireless Charging Shelves at your festival, you can contribute to these efforts, showing an environmentally focused mindset.
Crable uses sustainable materials and features energy-efficient technology, ensuring minimal environmental impact. Crable remains committed to working with all our partners on any environmental initiatives they are working towards. By embracing Crable Wireless Charging Shelves you can demonstrate your commitment to sustainability while meeting the evolving expectations of your tech-savvy customers.
If your festival exhibits signs of attendee frustration with battery life, has an increased reliance on digital ticketing and wants to make the most of opportunities for brand exposure, it's time to provide Crable wireless charging solutions.
Implementing our Wireless Charging Shelves allows you to address these needs while creating a more enjoyable experience for attendees. By embracing technology and staying ahead of the curve, your festival can stand out from the competition and leave a lasting impression on both attendees and sponsors.
