February 19, 2019- InMotion Entertainment Group, the U.S.’s largest airport-based electronics retailer, announced its 20th year anniversary. InMotion has grown from an airport movie rental kiosk to the largest electronics retailer in the U.S.
InMotion began as solely movie rental stores in US airports in February 1999, later adding music, movies and electronics retailing. The two (InMotion Pictures) stores in PDX in Portland, Oregon (2/11/99) and MSP in Minneapolis, Minnesota (2/17/99) rented DVD players and DVD to passengers. With customer-focused service and on-going research to identify the travelers’ changing needs, InMotion evolved its offering and grew along the ever-developing entertainment consumption and technology industries.
Over the years, InMotion acquired other retailers (such as Altitunes, iTech and Airport Wireless); unveiled over six store designs, and opened numerous new U.S. markets. Recently, on December 1, 2018, Global Retailer WH Smith recognized InMotion as a formidable player in the US market and acquired the company.
Today, InMotion is the largest and best airport electronics retailer with 116 stores in 43 airports with almost 800 employees. InMotion is a consumer electronics leader known for its award- winning customer service, global brand recognition, and a highly-curated product selection. InMotion is the only airport-based retailer to appear (and climb in ranking) in the Top 100 . Consumer Electronics Retailer Lists in Dealerscope and Twice Magazines, as well as win . Highest Regard for Customer Service by airport industry leader AXN for five years running.
Jeremy Smith, President & CEO of InMotion Entertainment Group, LLC said, “We have achieved this milestone through the dedication and willingness to go the extra mile from every employee. We have additional store growth planned, are actively pursuing international locations, and are exploring additional travel retail opportunities.”
“In 2019, we will celebrate InMotion past, present and future,” said Eden Goldberg, VP of Marketing and Business Development of InMotion Entertainment Group. “We begin with local celebrations in the stores and in our corporate office: In February, we will distinguish our 20-year history at the annual Airport Experience Conference to celebrate with our colleagues throughout the airport industry. Our annual Las Vegas InMotion Summit for our product partners and store managers in April will commemorate our sales achievements and prepare for the future products we will carry.”
