**accesso** Signs Partnership with Vision Works Global

LON­DON (12-August-2014) – acces­so® Tech­nol­o­gy Group plc (AIM: ACSO), the pre­mier tech­nol­o­gy solu­tions provider to the glob­al attrac­tions and leisure indus­try, has announced a three-year part­ner­ship with Vision Works Glob­al to help facil­i­tate acces­sos expan­sion into the fast-grow­ing South Kore­an theme park mar­ket place.

Vision Works Glob­al pro­vides con­sult­ing, deal struc­tur­ing and bro­ker­ing, and new busi­ness devel­op­ment for a range of loca­tion-based enter­tain­ment projects in South Korea. Its exten­sive pro­fes­sion­al con­tacts will enable acces­so to expand its vir­tu­al queu­ing solu­tions into the country’s rapid­ly evolv­ing amuse­ment park industry.

South Korea’s amuse­ment park and enter­tain­ment ser­vices mar­ket con­tin­ues to attract sig­nif­i­cant inter­est from devel­op­ers, with the top theme parks in the coun­try enjoy­ing atten­dance increas­es of 10 per­cent. The country’s invest­ment in theme parks and des­ti­na­tion resorts is help­ing attract vis­i­ta­tion from South­east Asia and Main­land Chi­na, an area that con­tin­ues to ben­e­fit from grow­ing dis­pos­able income across the region.

The theme park and attrac­tions indus­try in South Korea has abun­dant oppor­tu­ni­ty for growth and expan­sion, and has also reached a lev­el of matu­ri­ty where oper­a­tors are plac­ing a greater empha­sis on the guest expe­ri­ence and rev­enue opti­miza­tion,” said Tom Bur­net, acces­so CEO. Our inno­v­a­tive tech­nolo­gies, par­tic­u­lar­ly those that are mobile-cen­tric, part­nered with Vision Work Global’s local knowl­edge and indus­try exper­tise, will enable us to make a con­sid­er­able impact across the region.”

Jin Wook Choi, CEO of Vision Works Glob­al, under­stands the dif­fer­ence acces­sos solu­tions make in theme park cus­tomer expe­ri­ence and the effect they have on dri­ving revenue.

The mon­e­ti­za­tion of queue lines is rev­o­lu­tion­ary for our clients’ bot­tom-line,” said Choi. We noticed the trend of attrac­tions tak­ing pain stak­ing efforts dur­ing the plan­ning and design phase to make sure they accom­mo­date sec­ondary entrances for front of the line access. This is one of the pri­ma­ry rea­sons we’re excit­ed to part­ner with Accesso.”
