We were delighted to recently helped secure a partnership deal between the popular Lingfield Park Resort and ChargeBolt, the portable charging service currently making charging mobile in the UK.
Lingfield Park Resort, located in the serene Surrey countryside, is Europe’s busiest racecourse with over 80 fixtures a year, with flat, jump and all-weather racing, as well as boasting an onsite luxury hotel and leisure resort. The partnership between Lingfield Park and ChargeBolt will see the popular race course join forces with the innovative portable charging company to provide race-goers with charging solutions throughout the duration of their day at the races.
What makes ChargeBolt unique is the portability of its chargers. Many event and race-goers will be used to attending events where they have to stand and wait for their phone to charge. However, with ChargeBolt, this is set to be a thing of the past, as customers can simply take a charger from one of ChargeBolt’s stations, and return it to a station which is convenient to them when they’re done.
The partnership came about after ChargeBolt, who already provide fully endorsed and CE verified (EU) chargers in a number of venues, including over 600,000 stations in Asia, approached ECHO for their help in expanding in to the UK market.
ECHO, who have worked closely with Lingfield Park Resort throughout this year, facilitated the deal after recognising the incredible potential this could bring to Lingfield Park’s customer base, as well as presenting ChargeBolt with another notable UK location.
Tim Whitehead, Partnerships Manager at ECHO, said: “It’s been great working with these two companies and bringing this opportunity to fruition. ChargeBolt’s offering represents an innovative and modern approach to customer satisfaction. Lingfield Park are always looking to ensure the best possible satisfaction levels and this is a unique way to benefit their customer base.”
Deborah Hay, Partnerships Manager at Lingfield Park Resort, commented: “We are sure the ChargeBolt units will be a great addition to our customers. There are days when we host up to 10,000 people at the site so to have this facility where they can easily charge their devices – and keep their phones on them at the same time – is a huge asset from a customer service point of view.
For our hotel guests, this is equally important – the days of hunting around for chargers is now firmly in the past!”
