The Cape Town International Convention Centre is always looking at ways to improve the experience for visitors and clients. To ensure seamless events, the CTICC incorporates the latest technological advances.
"Last year, besides making sure that the jazz festival was a water-wise event (right down to the menus we created), we also initiated the cashless system for all food and beverage stations,” says Julie-May Ellingson, CEO of the CTICC.
"It was a great success. The cashless system, which is available to any of our clients, is safer and so much quicker for vendors and jazz lovers. We are going one step further this year with another advancement – instead of a card, festival goers can simply swipe their CTIJF wristband.
|Buying refreshments at the festival by swiping the wristband will mean much shorter queues as there will be no hold-ups while people look for cards, and there’s no waiting for change afterwards," says Ellingson.
Festival-goers can also order and load their wristbands in advance on the Howler.co.za website. It’s quick and easy – simply set up a Howler profile, navigate to the CTIJF page and follow the instructions. Wristbands can then be collected on the day of the festival from any of the top-up stations throughout the CTICC.
