Gilbertsville, PA (September 9, 2019) – Gateway Ticketing Systems®, a world leader in ticketing software, admission control and revenue-generating solutions for worldwide attractions for over 30 years, is exhibiting at this year’s IAAPA Expo Europe from September 16-19 in Paris, France. Gateway will be at Booth #1521 and is a Gold Sponsor of the event.
“With an office in central London and partners across the continent, Gateway has an active and engaged community in Europe,” says Steve Bell, Business Solutions Architect at Gateway Ticketing Systems. “We always enjoy meeting potential new customers and visiting with existing ones. The show provides an excellent opportunity to discuss with both groups how our Galaxy® software suite and expert services can increase visitor satisfaction, drive revenue and elevate their ticketing and admission processes.”
The company is excited to discuss new features in Galaxy. Their new Membership Portal is now accessible in the most recent version of the software, allowing members to manage the details of their account and allowing Gateway customers to better communicate and market to their guests. Gateway is currently developing integrations with Microsoft Active Directory, Apple Wallet and GBG Loqate, which will help their customers maintain the utmost of guest data integrity. The company is also continuing its focus on their highly flexible next-generation custom Ticketing and F&B kiosks, improving accessibility functionality, and maintaining domestic & international data security compliance.
Gateway’s Galaxy Ticketing and Admission Control software offers a highly-configurable suite of solutions tailored to the needs of attractions, including the ability to sell tickets on-site, through kiosks, online with a responsive design web store, through group sales, and via resellers and third-party distributors. Through 30+ years of operation they’ve developed robust functionality around annual passholder, membership and donor management, as well as targeted upsell opportunities and the efficient scheduling of groups, private tours, advanced bookings and timed events. Galaxy will also unify your ticketing, food & beverage and retail sales.
In recent years, the ticketing provider has developed their Reporting Plus and CRM Plus modules which capture all the transactional data from Galaxy and aggregate it into easily accessible and actionable reports used to make smarter business and marketing decisions.
They’ll be available to discuss Galaxy ConnectTM, the award-winning cloud-based platform that connects their attractions with any number of third-party distributors with a single integration to enable selling of live tickets anywhere in the world.
“To date in 2019, Connect customers have sold over $130 million in tickets and over 1.3 million customers have skipped the redemption line and gotten into their attractions sooner,” says Andy Povey, Managing Director of Gateway’s London office. “Connect currently works with 44 online travel agencies, with additional OTAs being added each week.”
Gateway’s involvement at IAAPA Expo Europe goes beyond just a presence at their booth. The company and their Galaxy Connect platform has been selected as a finalist for the Park World Excellence Awards in the category of “Best Use of Ticketing and Access Control Point”. The awards dinner will be held on Wednesday, September 18, at Le Méridien Etoile, Paris during IAAPA Expo Europe. They will also be distributing the IAAPA Expo Europe 2019 edition of their Beyond the Barcode Industry Newsletter, printed on 100% recycled and recyclable paper, which will offer useful tips on selecting kiosks, access to video tutorials of the software and other relevant content.
Finally, Randy Josselyn, Principal, Wildlife and Conservation at Gateway, will be speaking at the IAAPA Institute for Attractions Managers at Disneyland Paris from September 14-16. He’ll also be facilitating the Animal Attractions Panel on the 17th at 10:30 AM, discussing how to take your visitor experience to the next level.
