Event Ticketing

Dubai World Cup
Horse Racing Event Ticketing Solution

As “The Richest Race in the World,” the Dubai World Cup exemplifies a world-class event with enormous crowds, limited and urgent transaction windows, and complicated transactions. This prestigious event requires a no-glitch, payment transaction system that is quick, reliable, mobile—and, most importantly, secure. BBPOS meets the challenge with WisePad™. Customized apps extend event sales and ticketing beyond venue gates: at retail outlets, within organizations, and by corporate sponsors. Onsite, WisePad™ portability allows ticketing stations to be relocated as needed to keep lines short and patrons moving from curbside to trackside quickly. WisePad™ captures and processes ticketing sales information in real-time, to tabulate revenue and attendance numbers.
