Steve Drake is a founding team member of accesso. The company has, in a relatively short space of time, emerged as a powerful force in ticketing, virtual queuing and e-commerce for the attractions industry.
accesso provides a full range of technology solutions to accompany guests on their journey, while providing operators with new revenue streams. It was acquired by Lo-Q in 2012, which then rebranded the entire business as accesso and made additional acquisitions including Siriusware. The recruitment of former IAAPA CEO and Disney executive Paul Noland as accesso CEO in 2018 demonstrates its level of ambition.
Drake, who has been in the electronics industry for the majority of his career and also sat on a number of IAAPA committees, was responsible for overseeing the growth of operations in North America and Europe. He is now focused on growing accesso’s queuing business around the world.
