[Video] Cashless by Weezevent at the Gurtenfestival

In July 2022, we sup­port­ed the Gurten­fes­ti­val (Bern, Switzer­land) in deploy­ing our cash­less pay­ment solu­tion Weez­Pay.

Won over by the ben­e­fit of “avoid­ing any prob­lems with han­dling, logis­tics, weight and checks linked to cash pay­ments”, Lena Fis­ch­er, a mem­ber of the festival’s man­age­ment com­mit­tee, turned to Weezevent to set up a safe and secure pay­ment sys­tem.

The 4‑day edi­tion was 100% cash­less, and each of the 50,000 atten­dees received a per­son­al cash­less card.

Just like the organ­is­ing team, the atten­dees ben­e­fit from this tech­nol­o­gy, as Lena Fis­ch­er explains:

“The advan­tage of this sys­tem is that you can eas­i­ly top up your cash­less account online from your smart­phone. It’s very fast, and you can also check your con­sump­tion his­to­ry.”

Why Weezevent? As well as pro­vid­ing a tech­nol­o­gy that’s been adopt­ed by more than 350 fes­ti­val organ­is­ers, the strength of the sup­port we offer lies in our prox­im­i­ty to the Gurten­fes­ti­val team.

As Lena Fis­ch­er says, “each coun­try has its own pay­ment meth­ods, so it’s very impor­tant to have a local con­tact who’s famil­iar with the par­tic­u­lar fea­tures of the mar­ket.” Through this approach, a project man­ag­er on the ground in Switzer­land was able to iden­ti­fy each of the team’s needs and match them with the right tech­nol­o­gy. Every­thing went smooth­ly, work­ing along­side the cur­ren­cy (CHF), lan­guage (Ger­man) and local cul­ture!
