As a consequence of the pandemic, many more people have gone cashless, so the move to selling digital tickets is a win-win for the Revolution Bars and their guests. Spontaneous nights out will still happen, but now customers can secure their spot at ticketed events by booking online through FIXR – in advance, on the way to the venue, or even in the queue.
Using FIXR’s business information platform, the Revolution and Revolución De Cuba venues, which are owned by Revolution Bars Group PLC, can better understand their events popularity, capacity and audiences.
