Sunny weather helped accesso Technology (ACSO) make a "cracking start" in Europe, says chief executive Tom Burnet. The e-ticketing and virtual queuing specialist increased its first-half worldwide ticketing volumes by 13 per cent and grew its operating profit - adjusted for acquisition costs and currency impacts - by a quarter.
The group renewed agreements with Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Legoland in Windsor for its Qsmart product, which allows guests to queue for attractions without physically standing in line. That helped its LoQueue segment achieve a 23 per cent increase in average revenue per guest in Europe. It also agreed its first installation in Asia with The Movie Animation Park Studios in Malaysia, and partnered with Vision Works Global to expand into the fast-growing South Korean theme park market.
