The Woodlands Event Centre at Wyboston Lakes Resort goes cashless

smThe Woodlands Event Centre, the premier conference and event facility at Wyboston Lakes Resort, will not take cash for payments from January onwards.

Simon McMahon, Centre general manager (pictured) says: “The change to only accepting electronic payments will bring benefits to event participants by making service at the ‘Points of Sale’ faster,” he continues, “It will also help the venue staff by reducing security risks and administration procedures.”

Extensive research was undertaken when planning the change, and feedback was overwhelmingly positive.

McMahon adds: “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 of smart payments such as phones, watches and contactless cards. It is also in line with our forward-thinking approach to the £3m transformation of the Woodlands Events Centre into a high-class modern facility equipped for the next decade.”
