Jakarta (ANTARA) - The biggest jazz event in Indonesia, the 2022 BNI Java Jazz, will be an opportunity to improve people's digital transaction literacy, state-run PT Bank Negara Indonesia (Persero) Tbk or BNI has said.

BNI will prepare all vendors and supporting partners for the event on the use of several digital payment channels to accommodate more transactions without much physical contact.

In an official statement released on Friday, BNI's corporate secretary, Mucharom, noted that BNI Java Jazz is a good event for encouraging people to carry out more digital transactions.

High public consumption during music events, such as the jazz event, will be a momentum for BNI to further introduce the various advantages of digital channels.

"We will ensure that all channels function optimally for smoother transactions during the event. We expect that this can further enliven this year's BNI Java Jazz," he remarked.

The excitement of digital transactions will be felt from the time visitors arrive at the parking lot because they will be able to use BNI's Tapcash to pay the fee, which will be just Rp1 for the first hour.

Entering the concert area, visitors will be welcomed by a variety of merchandise stands selling souvenirs of the event.

There will also be 50 food and beverage vendors who will whet the audience's appetite before the concert begins.

Throughout the event, all transactions will be facilitated through digital payments, starting from QRIS, debit cards, credit cards, and BNI Tapcash, which have been utilized for a long time at Java Jazz, Mucharom informed.

Visitors will also be able to see a variety of BNI's digital innovations during this year's event. In fact, BNI will showcase the metaverse where the bank is planning to open a branch in the future.

"As a bank with international banking advantage, we will also showcase MSMEs (micro, small, and medium enterprises) that have managed to penetrate the global market," he noted.
