“The industry is becoming increasingly aware that a guest’s interactions with the location start long before they set foot in the facility,” explains Theo Sanders, CEO of Helix Leisure.

“Their pre-visit experiences form a vital part of their perception of a brand. With the Booking Boss acquisition, we’re now able to connect a beautiful pre-visit experience to Embed’s existing on-site capabilities, and in doing so, allow operators to engage with their guests at every step of the journey.”

This latest acquisition by Helix Leisure underlines its commitment to innovating new services and solutions for the out-of-home entertainment industry.

“We are delighted with the opportunity to join the Helix Leisure team,” adds Renee Welsh, CEO of Booking Boss.

“Their industry leading experience, company culture and global reach is going to take Booking Boss to exciting new industries and drive the future of the out-of-home entertainment industry, which includes attractions, tour operators and activity providers. We share the same passion to innovate booking and ticketing services and promote best-in-class practices.”
