It’s going to get more convenient to be a connected consumer who happens to be at an airport.

Monster Media has renewed its Interactive Digital Wall agreement and signed an additional contract with Clear Channel Airports to roll out a nationwide network of interactive charging stations.

“The Interactive Charging Station network includes kiosks in three select airports: Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW),” according to Clear Channel Outdoor. “Kiosks are ADA compliant and patent pending by Monster Media and use embedded touch-enabled LED screens. They allow travelers to charge their smartphones, tablets and laptops, keeping vital lines of communication open to family, friends and business colleagues.”

Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network will be used to deliver digital ads to the kiosks, including messages from Verizon.

“The new kiosks feature built-in cameras that allow travelers to snap a quick selfie to share with their families, friends and colleagues via social sites,” notes Clear Channel. “Campaigns can also reach across channels, prompting travelers to connect to the brand via social media and email when prompted by on-screen advertising content. The kiosks’ software captures usage metrics to provide insights on campaign effectiveness to brands.”

Airports just won’t be the same. And that’s a good thing.

“The interactive charging stations present advertisers with a way to slow down the busy traveler, present them with a free service, and in exchange, capture their time and attention to view messages from advertisers,” said Chris Beauchamp, CEO of Monster Media.
