Have ChargeKey Will Travel

ChargeKey is a key-shaped smartphone cable that fits onto your keychain. It works like your normal cable for charging and syncing your phone – plug one end into a USB port and the other end into your mobile device.

I like the fact that I can connect it to a keychain, but I’ve mostly kept it connected to my lipstick charger in my purse.

At the very affordable price of $25.00 I can see many event and conference applications. Providing these to your attendees (There are iphone and micro USB versions) or simply having them around charging stations.

Google Glass for the Ultimate Site Visit

Google Glass for the Ultimate Site Visit

I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed wearing Google Glass during CES. The handful of people wearing them was surprising, but I bet all would agree that wearing them in that setting was fantastic. Of course CES is not everyday use, so how does an event professional take advantage of being a Google Glass Explorer.

One way that I’ve found great value is during site visits. I used them on a couple of site visits to prepare for the March Social Media Tulsa Conference.

Her is an example of the site visit I did at the Aloft Downtown Hotel in Tulsa, OK.

These are no where near the quality of a Google Business photo, but for sharing with suppliers, speakers, and team members it works great.

I think this just scratches the surface of how event professionals will use Google Glass. How do you see them being used for events?

I remember being intrigued by the save the date notice I received from the WWE. The event and press conference did not disappoint. In their words, it’s way over the top.

I was fortunate to capture and enjoy the entire press conference through Google Glass. You can watch it as I did. I apologize for the occasional squeal. It was by far my favorite press conferences and party of CES 2014.



CEA announced today that the 2014 CES wrapped as the largest in show history with a record two million net square feet of exhibit space housing more than 3,200 exhibitors. CES dazzled as the global gathering place for anyone involved in the business of consumer technologies with more than 150,000 industry professionals in attendance, including more than 35,000 from outside the United States.
