Event experience

Prior to the event, visitors can easily create their account and add funds, ensuring they are ready to enter the event directly. With our cashless system, visitors can effortlessly make payments at any stand, bar, or merchandise point, without the hassle of physical coins or long queues.


Additionally, our integrated access controls ensure smooth and efficient entry to the event. By seamlessly connecting all these services, visitors can enjoy the event without worries, while the organization has an overview of all transactions and interactions.

Sustainable

Our cashless service places a strong emphasis on sustainability, as we eliminate the use of single-use plastic coins and streamline the process of collecting eco-cups. By bidding farewell to plastic coins and transitioning to a digital payment system using wristbands and cards,


we significantly reduce the amount of waste generated at our event. This not only simplifies the process for visitors but also enhances efficiency for the organization in collecting and processing the cups in an environmentally friendly manner.

FAQ

What is cashless? "Cashless" refers to a payment method where transactions are conducted without the use of physical money, such as (festival) tokens or banknotes. Instead, cashless payments utilize digital technologies and electronic devices to process payments. By using festival tokens, event organizers can provide a more efficient and secure payment experience for attendees. With Tactile, visitors make payments by first loading money onto their account and then using their wristband or payment card to make purchases.

What types of cashless are there? Cashless payment systems are divided into two main types: "closed loop" and "open loop." In a "closed loop" system, an internal payment method is used that is only valid within a specific ecosystem, such as payments with a wristband at festivals. In contrast, an "open loop" system uses existing payment methods, such as bank cards and mobile payment applications, that can be used anywhere they are accepted. Tactile focuses on "closed loop" cashless payments optimized for speed and stability. This allows the system to continue operating during power and internet outages, which is not possible with an "open loop" system.

How do you make cashless payments? Before and during the event, visitors can top up their balance within the event ecosystem. This balance is used to pay for products at the event using a personal wristband or anonymous payment card.

How do I check my balance? At Tactile, transparency is a priority. After each payment, visitors see their new balance on the payment terminal. During registration, visitors receive a link to their personal balance page for viewing and topping up. If the balance is low, we also send a message with a direct link to top up. If the organization also uses the event app, visitors can check and replenish their balance there as well. This ensures a seamless and transparent payment experience.

What if my phone is dead, and I can't top up via my mobile? Tactile also provides unmanned charging points where visitors can top up their balance with their bank card. Additionally, manned charging points are an option, where cash top-ups can also be supported.
