Terminal V goes cashless as Event Genius Pay makes Scottish debut
Scotland’s largest electronic music event brand, Terminal V has joined a growing list of festival’s choosing to go cashless with egPay.
The deal sees all five of the brand’s UK events going cashless with Event Genius including four 5000 capacity summer events featuring the very best of global techno including the likes of Patrick Topping, Floorplan, Adam Beyer and Ben Klock.
Beyond the summer, the flagship Terminal V Halloween festival will also be deploying egPay cashless technology and will run over two days for the first time, across 30th-31st October, with 40,000 fans in attendance.
As a result, Terminal V fans will be afforded the best and most COVID-secure payments experience possible before, during and after their visit to the events.
Prior to the events, ticket holders will create an online account to pre-purchase credits, which will replace cash across the festival sites. Upon arrival, these credits will be loaded onto an RFID enabled wristband - which they’ll receive in exchange for their ticket - and be used to pay for food, drink and more with a quick tap. Fans will be able to top-up credits on-site whenever they run low at COVID-secure self-service top-up terminals (see video below), and reclaim any unspent credits after the event has finished.
Through removing physical cash, reducing fan to staff contact points, speeding up transactions by up to 80% and thus reducing queues and wait times, Terminal V will offer both fans and staff safer environments across all their event sites.
Speaking about the partnership, Reshad Hossenally, Event Genius Founder and Festicket CSO commented: “egPay offers a win-win scenario for Terminal V’s fans and organisers. Without having to worry about carrying money or wasting time waiting in line to be served, Terminal V attendees can enjoy more of the events while the Terminal V team can expect a reduction in cash handling, fan to staff contact points and potential virus transmission, as well as a significant boost to their revenues.”
“This will also be our first egPay roll out in Scotland, so we’re extra excited to meet the team, get onsite and help deliver some great events.”
