Zurich, 25 November 2015: From summer 2016, Swisscom Event & Media Solutions will provide Openair St. Gallen with the Cashless Payment and Access Control system from Intellitix. With this partnership, one of Switzerland’s most established festivals has opted for a highly efficient, secure, global and market-tested solution.
After several successful events, including the SummerDays Festival in Arbon, Swisscom Event & Media Solutions has proven that its Cashless Payment and Access Control system is effective and secure. Chief Financial Officer, Cyril Stadler, was particularly impressed by the data security, which fulfils the highest standards: “Swisscom Event & Media Solutions, in collaboration with Intellitix, is a reliable and trustworthy Swiss partner whose products and services have been successful in the events market for years. Its solution leads the way internationally and offers high security and stability.” In addition to the features of the previously used system, the new solution combines Access Control with Cashless Payments to make organisation workflows and processes more efficient and simpler.
Openair St. Gallen has been a sell-out event for many years and attracts more than 110,000 visitors to Sittertobel each year. An event of this magnitude demands reliability. Swisscom Event & Media Solutions relies on the market-tested system from exclusive partner Intellitix, which is used at major international events such as Tomorrowland in Belgium or the Coachella Festival in the US, with about 100,000 unique visitors per day.
