Hideki’s Globalink Keeps Everyone On Time at Housewares ‘06

March 12, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Each year, when more than 60,000 people, including 6,,000 international buyers from 100 different countries, congregate in Chicago for the International Home and Housewares Show, time is of the essence. This year, Hideki Electronics, Inc. helps everyone stay on Central Time with its new Digiview Globalink World Travel Clock.

Whether it is jet lag, traffic, or last minute meetings, the new Globalink will automatically let you know exactly what time it is. It is the only clock that receives all six atomic radio signals for automatic time setting everywhere in the world.

Jim Boyle, president of Hideki Electronics, said, “For an event like Housewares when people are traveling from all over the world, Globalink is perfect. It packs a world of features in an elegant, ultra-thin, card-sized convenience. It is ideal for the frequent and the occasional traveler, who wants the most precise travel companion that automatically sets itself to the local time anywhere in the world.”

In addition to providing accurate time, the Globalink (Model RC305EL, MSRP $59.99) offers a month and day calendar display in six programmable languages, current temperature reading in Celsius or Fahrenheit, dual crescendo alarms with snooze feature, and a stylish enhanced orange back-lit LCD screen for easy viewing.

The durable casing for Globalink is an elegant metal that is uniquely engineered to not interfere with any of the radio signals from the atomic towers located throughout the world. Other atomic clocks on the market can only receive five of the six different signals – two in Japan, one from Great Britain, Germany, and the United States. Hideki’s Globalink also receives the sixth signal from the atomic tower in Switzerland, allowing for the highest level of accuracy possible.

The 2006 International Home & Housewares Show features more than 2,000 exhibitors from around the world, including more than 450 new companies, showcasing products for every room inside the home and out, including gourmet specialty foods and outdoor living products. Each year the Show attracts: 60,000 professional attendee, nearly 14,000 U.S. buyers, and 6,000 international buyers from 100 different countries. The Show is categorized into four “show-within-a-show” expos: Dine & Design, Clean, Contain & Outdoor Domain, Wired & Well, and Global Crossroads.
