EOS Linx, a supplier of solar stations with chargers for electric vehicles and digital advertising displays, is working with Choice Hotels International to install EOS chargers at selected facilities in the southeastern United States, the company said in a press release.
“We are excited to introduce EOS charging stations to Choice Hotels’ selection and help meet drivers ’EV charging needs,” Blake Snyder, President of EOS Linx, said in a release. “The properties of Choice Hotels are often located close to the highway, making them an ideal place for EV chargers, and this collaboration brings us one step closer to building a robust EV charging infrastructure that will help support EV’s growth goals in our country.”
The first set of stations will be installed at the Choice Hotels franchise in Atlanta, Chattanooga, Tennessee and Nashville in the first quarter of 2022 with the aim of deploying more chargers across the US following a successful pilot program.
“This is an exciting collaboration that will give drivers access to EV chargers while traveling and may in the future open up new customer opportunities for our more than 6,000 domestic franchise hotels,” said Rick Suma, vice president of partner services at Choice Hotels International. , the release said. “The ability to give drivers that extra convenience, as well as to promote environmentally sustainable practices in the cities that serve our franchisees, makes this relationship effective, which we’re excited to develop.”
EOS-based charging stations, powered by data analytics tools, include 75-inch digital outbound advertising displays to increase brand awareness and engage with consumers. A study by Nielsen and the American Outdoor Advertising Association found that 70% of consumers who spot an OOH ad based on digital locations visit a business after exposure, and 89% make a purchase after visiting a business.
The digital display can also broadcast public announcements of missing children through EOS Linx’s partnership with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the release said.
Choice Hotels International has more than 7,100 hotels in nearly 40 countries and territories.
