Cardlink at the Burger Fest with a full self-service ticketing, ordering and payment solution, in collaboration with Visa

Cardlink, member of Worldline (Euronext:WLN), the European leader in payment services, supported the biggest burger festival, as the technology partner of Visa, providing ticketing, ordering and payment services to the thousands of visitors of this year’s Burger Fest in Greece, which took place on 21-24 September and 28 September-1 October, at Amaksostasio in Gazi.

Powered with innovation and its advanced technologies, Cardlink could not be absent from Burger Fest 2023, where in collaboration with Visa they offered burger lovers an enhanced experience from the very first moment they entered the venue.

More precisely, Cardlink installed the SK800 high-tech vending machines with Android software at the festival premises. Having integrated the all-in-one Cardlink ticketing app designed by the company for ticketing and ticket management, the SK800 unattended smart kiosks provided visitors with the ability to select the ticket they wanted to buy, pay for it, and receive it immediately, avoiding waiting at the tills. Thanks to the cutting-edge application, 5.000 visitors of Burger Fest issued, paid for, and received their tickets, taking advantage of a fast and innovative self-service, hands-off process.

At the same time, enhanced with the advanced ordering application Cardlink maitre, the SK800 unattended smart kiosks also facilitated the self-service orders of visitors. During the festival, burger lovers could select the photo of the drink or soft drink they wanted to accompany their favorite meal, add the products to the basket with ease, pay with a Visa card in any way they wished, all through the vending machines, and finally, with proof of the transaction, pick up their order at the festival bars.

SK800 smart kiosks are easy to use and enable contactless payments by card, smartphone, or wearable, as well as additional self-service facilities. Combined with Cardlink ticketing and Cardlink maitre, Cardlink has created a seamless all-in-one transaction service suitable for concerts, festivals, theatres, cinemas etc. and uniquely able to serve the need for self-service.
