Charging Station, Help Station, Juice Bar, Extra Sponsorship
JUICE BAR: A cell phone charging area with multiple chargers for different smartphones; at fundraising events, this is ideally staffed with a Bid Assistant to help troubleshoot mobile connection troubles and assist with placing bids.
When your event includes mobile bidding, a dreaded low-battery can dampen the guest experience. For bidders who have a device with a low battery or need assistance with bidding, strategically locate and identify a mobile bidding help station or a smaller charging station (aka Mobile Juice Bar) ready. Charging station bid assistants should monitor these kiosks as well to provide basic support.
For anyone who arrives without a device, stock your charging station with extra devices that bidders can use for the silent auction. Or, provide bidding assistance by placing bids for them—Bid Assistants can place bids for guests on their iPads.
