Boxbar launches the world's first automated, self-serve drinks solution dispensing a complete beverage menu for events and venues

The live events industry is facing challenges like never before. For organisers, creating profitable events is harder than ever with escalating costs posing a serious risk to events and venues around the world. For customers, the demands for elevated experiences have never been higher yet the experience surrounding beverage service at major events is one defined by long queues, poor quality drinks and low customer satisfaction. Customers attend events to spend quality time with their friends and family, watch their favourite acts, make memories and enjoy the experience. Not to spend time in long queues.

We know that beverage sales are vital to the success and profitability of events and venues. That’s why it is essential that organisers maximise and optimise this process both for the better of their fans and the success and profitability of their events. And after a breakthrough year in 2023, working alongside the likes of The Warehouse Project, Secret Garden Party, Levy, Aviva Studios, Peppermint and many more, we are excited to unveil our brand new solution that delivers just that.

Introducing Boxbar, the world’s first automated self-serve drinks solution for events, venues and festivals able to dispense a complete beverage menu, serving beers, ciders, wine, cocktails, spirit & mixers and soft drinks, all from the same machines.

The solution offers an innovative new approach to beverage service, with a more efficient process, a much improved fan experience and healthier revenues for events, venues and festival organisers.
