Katt Alexander, Production, DF Concerts/T In The Park: Moving to the use of smart access controlled solutions on site at T in the Park was something we have wanted to do for several years. With the help, support and innovative response of IVS to our particular requirements we created a very successful system that we plan to build on in years to come. Their knowledge of the events industry, flexibility to customise services to particular customer needs and management team are first class and we look forward to working closely with the team in the future.”

Bradley Thompson of Snowbombing promoters Broadwick Live:We’re thrilled to have made Snowbombing Europe’s first music festival to roll out this technology. The system definitely added to the event and the experience for guests that visited the Barclaycard Arctic Disco. We appreciate that Snowbombing’s location brings its own set of environmental challenges, so hats off to Intelligent Venue Solutions for a flawless delivery. We very much hope to work with them, and Barclaycard at our future events, taking contactless technology to even greater heights

Donna Krawczyk, Senior Sponsorship Manager, Barclaycard: “It was great to work with Intelligent Venue Solutions once again. Altitude and blizzards – another milestone for Barclaycard PayBand”

Rob Langford, Director Solo Agency: “IVS delivered a professional and effective access solution using smart wristbands. This system allowed us to have valuable real time attendance data from their back-end reporting software. IVS have also provided a cashless payment system to provide our customers with fast payment in a green field environment. This year they also implemented an electronic staff accreditation system which they modified to our bespoke requirements.

We have continued to work with IVS each year since 2011 and believe that in IVS we have reliable partners who are willing to work with us to find robust technical solutions to all variety of challenges that we throw at them. They are a very approachable team who offer an attentive and personal service.”

Marion King, President of MasterCard UK & Ireland:Building on the success of the last two years, MasterCard is continuing to enhance the festival experience for music fans, by using our innovation to enable simple, safe and smart payments. This year’s trial is the latest milestone in the journey towards to a truly ‘cashless’ environment, as festival goers look to spend less time queuing and more time enjoying their favourite bands

Mark Hatch, Director of Operations at Central Catering Services:We have always  believed that the combination of contactless, cashless and fast card clearance payments are the foundation of fully cashless future festivals. The successful provision of these payment systems and the experience gained at the Isle of Wight last week have confirmed this
