The Woodlands Event Centre, the premier conference and event facility at Wyboston Lakes Resort in the UK will not take cash for payments at all from January onwards.
Simon McMahon, general manager of Woodlands Event Centre said: “The change to only accepting electronic payments will bring benefits to event participants by making service at the ‘points of sale’ faster. It will also help the venue staff by reducing security risks and administration procedures.”
“With 90% of us now only using cash for less than 10% of our payments, this initiative reflects changes in the way we pay, especially with the rise smart payments such as phones, watches and contactless cards. It is also in line with our forward-thinking approach to the GBP 3 million (USD 1.32 million) transformation of the centre into a high-class modern facility equipped for the next decade,” he added.
