Lightspeed to Power Transactions at Montréal’s Fifth Annual Mural Festival

Lightspeed this week announced a partnership with Montréal’s anticipated Mural Festival.

The Montreal company is the official retail and restaurant point of sale provider for the event; Lightspeed’s omnichannel product, ecommerce platform and restaurant solution will power all transactional aspects of Mural, which takes place over 11 days on Boulevard Saint-Laurent.

Mural Festival is a vibrant display of urban art, which saw more than 1.3 million visitors in 2016. It aims to merge the best of the city’s arts, culture, and food scenes. From live murals and musical concerts to conferences and exhibitions, the festival brings a community together in the heart of Montreal.

“Lightspeed is a prominent fixture in our city, providing local independent businesses with the technology tools they need to thrive and grow,” said Pierre-Alain Benoit, Directeur general, Festival international d’art public Mural. “Through this partnership, Lightspeed will help us centralize our data, sell 365 days a year, and power all of our hospitality services during the festival.”

“Lightspeed is proud to support the expansive arts and culture community in our home city of Montréal through this year’s partnership with Mural Festival,” added Lightspeed CEO Dax Dasilva.

More than 45,000 retailers and restaurateurs process over $15 billion in transactions annually via Lightspeed. The company was founded in Montreal in 2005.
