Visit McKinney Keeps Delegates Charged Up at Recent Group Travel Family Conference

SALEM, Ohio — Keeping your phones and tablets powered can be a task, but it’s important to today’s communications needs. This is even more relevant at conventions and events. Visit McKinney recognized the need and kept delegates of the Small Market Meetings Conference powered up by placing charging stations on the marketplace floor.

Studies have found that over 23 percent of conference attendees nationwide run low on battery power at meetings, and a full 10 percent lose power altogether.

“Phone power has become an important concern, and Visit McKinney agreed to step up and sponsor charging stations throughout the marketplace floor,” said Valerie Dennison of The Group Travel Family. Dennison reached out to Visit McKinney with the opportunity and helped arrange the service.

“It’s a win-win,” Dennison said. “Delegates receive free and easy charging, and Visit McKinney has great destination visibility.”

The visibility comes from the Visit McKinney logo displayed on each charger on the marketplace floor. The Texas destination will gain valuable brand awareness, and meeting planners will get a much-needed phone charge as well as a great destination for their next conference.
