World is full of stuff and dispensable products. Elämyslahjat.fi in Finland is a service provider selling gift cards to experiences. Its a perfect and nature friendly way of remembering your friends during birthdays, events and more. Check out the link above. (it is Finnish, as so is the service provider and location for this climbing gift card.)
However, this is a great example which will also work around the world. Give yourself a treat and experience. Enjoing the time together is many occasions better than dispensable stuff.
This video is ideal for new users looking at the ClimbStation in malls or other locations. It attracts, shows it in action and how to get started. Note: this video is without sounds.
Thinking about easy payment system. Convenient for you and your customers? Sell them climbing rights by adding time and value to the key ring tag.
One of our new feature is that you can have ClimbStation with a smart card / tag reader. Edit the tag fast and easily with the ClimbStation display without the need of separate tag chargers or internet connection.
How it works:

Welcome to meet us and see Climbstation innovations on Fibo Fitness. Hall 6, Stand B65. Between 3rd.-6th. Of April 2014.
Fear of failure and falling are the real risks in climbing. Mentally it can be a very big obstacle to climb, continue further or even try climbing. You can build your confidence with mental training tips and other practicing materials.
I think for beginners and also pros its always a good idea to go for bouldering and a of course use a ClimbStation to build your confidence, endurance, skills and technique before reaching for real heights.
Sport Chek store in West Edmonton Mall attracts customers in a new active and interactive ways. . I think there are a lot to learn from them. Congratulations to Sport Chek for their new location.
Read the whole store from attached link / Edmonton Journal. Here is a part of the article:
Kyle Murray, associate professor of marketing and the director of the School of Retailing at the University of Alberta, said Sport Chek and Atmosphere are looking for ways to bring customers into the store with activity zones.
“Stores like the Apple Store and the Disney Store have demonstrated that if you create a space that’s really engaging, it actually has a major impact on sales per square foot,” Murray said. “A lot of retailers are moving toward making that in-store environment so engaging that people want to spend time in the store, so you’re not just going to buy and research these things online. You’re going to go try out your climbing shoes on the wall and check out the treadmill in person or swing a bat or shoot a hockey puck.
“It’s part of giving people a reason to come into the store as more and more people are seeing online shopping as a viable alternative.”
To see the newest and most sophisticated climbing wall built so far. I would like to invite you to come and visit FIBO fair Germany 11. – 14. April 2013.
ClimbStation team and products will be shown in Hall 9, Stand H / 12
PS: To see an interesting news and perspective regarding "Chained to your chair? Try a treadmill desk"
see the link. Its pretty interesting.... After seeing it, imagine if you would have a minute of a climbing once in a while instead of hours of walking.
It is a pleasure to announce that Climbstation is at Arena Exhibition in Helsinki Fair centre during 9th. to 11th. October. We will present our latest wall and new upgrades. Especially new payment options. smart card reader etc. Will be posting new videos and images later.
