Catchbox is the world’s first throwable wireless microphone that encourages audience engagement at events of all sizes. With its attractive soft exterior and auto mute technology, the clever device can be safely passed around without getting damaged or causing unwanted noises. Unlike normal microphones that are slow to pass around, Catchbox can be simply thrown into an audience, igniting a completely new way of organising discussions, whilst making events more engaging and fun.

The device comes in two versions; Catchbox Lite for smaller events and Catchbox Pro for larger conferences. The replaceable outer cover can also be fully customised and branded for promotion and engagement in one.

Whether a conference, lecture, workshop, teambuilding session, management meeting or even a conference call, Catchbox is designed to spark spontaneous conversations and quickly break the ice. Based in Finland, the Catchbox company was founded in 2012 by Timo Kauppila, Pyry Taanila and Mikelis Studers with its headquarter in Espoo, Finland and offices in Boston, USA and Riga, Latvia. The device has taken the world by storm with thousands of enthusiastic Catchbox users in the UK and Europe, the United States, Canada and UAE including Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Airbnb, Netflix, Lego, Marriott and Hilton Hotel Groups.

Catchbox’s high quality products are produced in the EU from the company’s own factory in Latvia. Described by existing users as ‘the sweet spot for audience engagement’ and ‘fun and faultless’, Catchbox has already won a series of international awards for its lightasafeather, sleek and attractive design.

Catchbox is owned by Trick Technologies Oy.
