We under­stand when it comes to eCom­merce, every sec­ond counts, and our tick­et­ing solu­tion revolves around prin­ci­ples that are sim­i­lar to the ser­vice stan­dards the Kennedy Space Cen­tre employ in their oper­a­tion.

Few places are as com­pet­i­tive as Cen­tral Flori­da when it comes to engag­ing vis­i­tors, and Accesso’s tick­et­ing plat­form will allow us to bet­ter com­pete by help­ing increase our pre-arrival sales opportunities,” 

There’s so much to see and do at Kennedy Space Cen­ter Vis­i­tor Com­plex.
