Lo-Q plc (AIM: LOQ), the AIM-listed technology solutions provider to the attractions and leisure industry, has signed a new agreement (the "Agreement") with Gürsoy & Via Development and Management Co., to bring Q-bot, Lo-Q's patented electronic queue management system and Q-smart, Lo-Q's smartphone-based queuing solution, to Vialand - Turkey's first international mega theme park, exhibition centre and shopping centre.

 

Under the terms of the Agreement, Lo-Q's patented virtual queuing technology solutions will be installed at the new theme park for a period of two years with the option to extend for a further two. Q-bot will be used for eight of the park's largest rides ready for the opening of Vialand later this year. The agreement also includes the installation of Q-smart which will follow later in the season.

 

With investment totalling TL1 billion, Vialand marks one of the biggest retail investments in the Republic's history. Spread over 600,000 square metres of land at the heart of Istanbul, the attraction is expected to welcome approximately two million guests each year. Not only does Vialand plan to transform the face of the European side of Istanbul, it is also predicted to increase the number of local and foreign tourists visiting the city by 15%.

 

Commenting on the agreement, Tom Burnet, Chief Executive Officer of Lo-Q plc said:

 

"I am delighted Gürsoy & Via Development and Management Co sought to install both our Q-bot and Q-smart solutions at Turkey's first mega theme park. This is a particularly exciting deal for Lo-Q not only because it is our first installation in Turkey, but also because Vialand marks the second customer win for our newest technology solution, Q-smart. Adding Vialand to our park portfolio adds to our already strong presence in the European theme park arena."

 

Mehmet Emeç, General Manager at Vialand added:

 

"We are delighted to be working with Lo-Q at Vialand and are confident that the addition of their virtual queuing solutions will help us provide real value and fantastic, memorable experiences to our guests as we open our brand new theme park to the public."
