LAS VEGAS, NV, September 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – International Spirits and Beverage Group Inc. (OTCQB:ISBG) (“ISBG” or the “Company”), a top-tier brand incubator in the Global Wine & Spirits market, is excited to announce that its blockchain-based platform (“ISBG-Bengala Blockchain Project”) has signed a major agreement with Airtab®, an app that guides users to nearby experiences at trending restaurants, bars, and more.
The agreement provides for a powerful expansion of the ISBG-Bengala Blockchain Project. The project has been focused on streamlining the logistics involved in the production and distribution of alcoholic beverages. With Airtab, the project will offer an end-to-end solution that includes an engaging customer-facing platform and unparalleled depth of reach and interaction with the wine, beer, and spirits end-market consumer through marketing, events, and experiences.
Airtab’s Founder and CEO, Dennis Cunningham notes, “On any given night, Airtab users can be found sipping on a flight of craft cocktails prepared by expert mixologists, exploring a fresh restaurant concept, or being rewarded with a complimentary drink. Our app guides users to trending experiences, and through our proprietary Here-Now-Live™ auto check-in technology, we’ve created a real win-win. We have constructed a true social network, allowing our users to experience the excitement of ‘social drinking’ and explore the Here-Now-Live ecosystem, simultaneously increasing the visibility of participating locations. Restaurants and brands are thrilled with the raw insights and behavioral analytics that only an Airtab partnership can produce.”
Company management notes that Airtab is a natural use-case for the integration of the ISBG-Bengala Blockchain Project because of the potential volume of transactions that can be handled through the technology, and the unprecedented access the app provides. With the utilization of ISBG-Bengala blockchain integration, this process will now be secure and encrypted.
“The way that Amazon lets you explore a product before you buy it, Airtab lets you explore the scene before you go out,” states Cunningham. “This innovation will bring the blockchain process to the spirits industry for the first time and on a grand scale. We are quickly approaching the launch of something that will redefine how people redeem and share alcoholic beverages at drinking establishments worldwide.”
