Fête Final Goes Cashless
The final party, or the Fête Finale is the annual graduation ball for over 1600 departing third-year students. This year, the evening travelled back in time 100 years to adopt the theme of the roaring twenties, but took a step towards into the future by implementing advanced event technology.
Glownet joined with Fête Finale this year to provide a seamless cashless payment solution to the event. When guests bought their tickets, they were given RFID wristbands pre-loaded with complimentary refreshments that were included in the tickets. Glownet also enabled a mobile top-up system during the gala dinner, so that guests could load more money onto their wristbands for the after party from their phones.
In addition, Glownet trained EHL students to use the cashless payment system the day before the event. This meant that the students were in complete control of their own event, an operational decision which corresponded with the core philosophies of the school.
Glownet were thrilled to have been a part of Fête Finale 2018. It was a pleasure to introduce our technology to the future global leaders of hospitality, who we look forward to working with in the future.
