Wet'n'Wild Sydney Contract Win

Three year agreement with Village Roadshow Theme Parks for accesso LoQueuesm at Sydney park

accesso Technology Group plc (AIM: ACSO), the premier technology solutions provider to leisure, entertainment and cultural markets, today announces a three year agreement with Village Roadshow Theme Parks to install the accesso LoQueue virtual queuing solution at Wet'n'Wild Sydney.


The agreement will see accesso's patented Qbandsm deployed across nine attractions in one of Australia's most visited water parks. The waterproof RFID wristband allows guests to queue virtually for their chosen ride before being notified by the device's countdown display that their turn has arrived.


The agreement will see Wet'n'Wild Sydney become the second Village Roadshow venue to leverage accesso's Qband, providing compelling evidence of accesso's ability to expand existing relationships through the provision of multiple products or services to the same operator. This agreement also reflects the Group's increasing focus on the Asia-Pacific region where accesso has recently hired a regional Managing Director to coordinate its sales efforts.


Commenting, Tom Burnet, Executive Chairman of accesso Technology Group plc said:


"We're delighted to have expanded our relationship with Village Roadshow with an agreement that reflects a significant show of trust in our solution.


Such a vote of confidence makes us very proud, and we look forward to three more years of partnership with this prestigious operator."


Commenting, Dianne Rigg, General Manager of Wet'n'Wild Sydney said:

"The Qband has been very popular at our Wet'n'Wild Las Vegas park and now guests at our Sydney park will be able to get more out of their visit, spending less time in line and more time enjoying our world-class attractions."
