Don’t Get Left Out In The Cold – Secure Your EAG & VAE Accommodation

15/11/2017 | No comments

EAG International &The Visitor Attraction Expo 2018 will take place on 16th-18th January. For many of the thousands of leisure operators who will converge on ExCel London, the annual visit to EAG & VAE has become an integral part of the planning process for the forthcoming year.

The show’s timing, right at the start of the New Year, is perfect for those eager to experience the every latest products from leading manufacturers. For many visitors, EAG International & VAE also delivers the perfect opportunity to attend seminars and educational events, to take part in trade association events held during the show, and to compare notes with colleagues from within the industry.

With so much to see and do at EAG & VAE, a conveniently located hotel is a high priority and whilst the area around ExCel has a good selection of hotels, accommodation can be at a premium during busy times.

Show Organiser Karen Cooke advises all participants to book early: “Attending any large show is a major commitment in terms of time and money. With a packed show schedule, most visitors prefer to stay close to ExCel rather than spend time travelling. Prices for hotel rooms do increase as the show draws closer and, let’s face it, paying over the odds for a hotel room can leave a bitter taste.

“Our accommodation partner, Event Express, is a specialist in exhibition hotels and has secured some excellent rates. Unlike many booking services, they will hold rooms with no deposit. They may be accessed via the EAG & VAE website under the ‘visit’ tab,” confirms Karen.

Visit www.eagexpo.com  to register, to book accommodation and to learn more about what’s on offer at the amusements and attractions industries’ essential  start to the New Year. Then  relax in the knowledge that you’ll get the very best out of your time at the show!

Ticketing products prove popular for ITL at ACOS 2017

20/10/2017 | No comments

The Autumn Coin-Op Show (ACOS) 2017 took place at on 11 & 12th October at the Conference Centre (Level 3) at London Olympia. A key industry hot topic at the event was TITO (Ticket-In Ticket-Out) and how interest is growing significantly across the UK amusement sector.

Andy Bullock, Business Development Manager, commented, “An electrical fire at Chelsea Football Club led to a last-minute change of venue the day before ACOS 2017 was due to start but despite this the event was busy overall. As the use of TITO technology is growing we decided to use our stand at ACOS once again to highlight our complete range of ticketing solutions alongside our established coin and note handling products.”

Andy continued, “Our ticketing products proved very popular on the stand, in particular the NV12+ which is a revolutionary compact validator and ticket printer. It dramatically reduces operational costs by eliminating hopper starvation and reducing cash handling tasks. Its modular design combines an NV9 USB+ banknote validator with a high-performance printer unit and integral barcode reader, delivering a market leading ticketing system. The NV12+ accepts standard industry barcode tickets and has an unrestricted ticket print length, enabling it to print end of day audits as well as single tickets.”

Playdium receives top marks from ACOS visitors

20/10/2017 | No comments

“A memorable edition full of energy and optimism for the future of the jukebox industry” is how Toby Hoyte, TouchTunes’ Sales and Marketing Manager, chose to describe last week’s ACOS, which marked the first anniversary of the launch of the Playdium to a UK audience of operators. In the 12 months following the arrival of what commentators now refer to as the ‘world’s smartest jukebox’, TouchTunes has made great inroads to the market with over 50 operators siting the Playdium in pubs, clubs and other entertainment locations throughout the country.

The 2017 edition of ACOS, which, according to Hoyte, was well attended by music operators, provided another opportunity to press home the features which have made Playdium the best performing jukebox on the market as well as the financial model which enables operators to pay just £14.50 a week and pay for their Playdium over three years. He stated: “This is a win win for operators and the response has been outstanding. The market has been campaigning long and hard for a business model which does away with flat music fees. We have listened to that and moved accordingly to scrap flat fees and replace them with a simple 18% of the cashbox. In reality we are backing ourselves such is the faith that we have in Playdium which is breathing new life into the music sector.”
