BrightBox Offers Secure Charging Stations
BrightBox offers secure charging stations that enable event guests to stash and recharge their phones. Event attendees simply swipe a credit card to open a chamber, plug their phone in to charge it, and then leave to dine, see entertainment and so on while the phone is charging. Swiping the same card later lets the guest retrieve the phone. The stations charge virtually all phones—Android, iPhone, Blackberry and more—quickly, the manufacturer says, and the system never accesses any data on the phone. Venues using the stations can increase guest satisfaction and drive social media about the venue, the company says.

CasaBubble Units Serve as Portable Rooms
CasaBubble units are frameless, virtually roofless globes that can serve as meeting rooms, exhibition booths for trade shows, or a bedroom. The "bubbles" are inflated by a special turbine that helps the units keep their shape, renews the air inside, and eliminates pollen, humidity and condensation problems, the company says. The bubbles are quick to set up and can be stationed far away from energy sources, according to the company. Their clear walls and roofs provide beautiful views of the environment where they are installed.
