Albany, NY -  SMG managed Times Union Center has partnered with Upstate Ford Dealers and goCharge to install free charging stations on the concourse of the arena. 

"With the increased use of cell phones and tablets, not only for communication, but for taking photos and videos, we saw a number of patrons searching for outlets to charge their devices.  Adding these free charging stations was a no brainer.  Our goal is to make our patrons visit more enjoyable, and we think these stations can only add to their experience," says Bob Belber, SMG Regional General Manager, Times Union Center.

goCharge, a company founded in 2009 is the oldest and largest charging kiosk company in America.  The charging stations located at the 4 corners of the Times Union Center concourse, have been sponsored by Upstate Ford Dealers, and are 42" high, glass top tables.  Each station provides 12 universal charging cords and 4 standard, 110/120V (AC) outlets. 

The stations are installed, fully operational, and free to patrons.
